Good Morning. It is time for another Weekly Challenge at Joan's Gardens. Before I get started, I want to thank all of you for your beautiful entries in last week's challenge. There were over 100 entries and so much inspiration using JustRite Stamps.
Joan has been extremely busy this week with shipping and getting ready for her next workshop. She asked me this morning to create a card for the challenge. I wanted to use some design paper from a new pad I just received from Joan called "Stella and Rose" by My Mind's Eye. All the pages in this pad are beautiful. I do not use the color orange very often but loved the color combination in this paper. I seldom build a card around a piece of design paper but found it fun to do.
The stamp set used is from the JustRite "Backyard Birds Set". It should be time for the robins to appear but not the case where I live. We are still getting lots of snow. Where is spring???? I cut around the frame with scissors then mounted it on a blue Nestabilities Lacy Circles frame. It was attached with dimensionals. I really like the border on this JustRite stamp so tried to (kind of) duplicate it for the embellishment. I used the Sizzix Birds and Branch die and layered two of the branches on the left side of the bird. I created some orange blossoms using the"blossom" punch I used yesterday for the Cherry Blossoms. This punch is so versatile. Two Cuttlebug corners were added on the top of the card, then a blue bow under the frame. To complete the card, I decided to add some yellow Stickles to the center of all the punched flowers and the flowers in the border.
I hope you will join us in this challenge. Here are the items Joan listed for this week's challenge:
All products used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
