Joan's Weekly Challenge



It is time to start a new round of challenges at Joan's Garden.  Joan and I loved seeing all your beautiful cards last year and hope you will join us again this year. 
Here is what you need to do for Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #1:
  • Make a card and/or tag using some kind of hearts
  • Use any kind of embellishments 
  • Use, pink or red with white
  • Do some kind of embossing
You will have until next Thursday (January 12) morning 6:00 AM EST to link your project.  

My card is 5"x7".  The background was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Love Language" embossing folder.  Last month Joan posted a lot of new Cheery Lynn dies that include a lot of heart shapes.  I used the "Sweetheart Frame" (FRM127) and on the inside of the frame I added a white piece behind it that was red embossed with the Penny Black "Love is the Message" (4023K) stamp.  A Spellbinders Rose was added to the left side.  Under the rose I added pieces of the Cheery Lynn "Lace Rose and Flourishes" (B135) die cut.  On the inside of this card I attached the beautiful Cheery Lynn "Garden of Love" (B141) die.  You can see this in the photo below.  This is a very intricate die but it pops right out of the die. Isn't it beautiful! 


EDIT:   SOMEONE EMAILED AND ASKED ME TO INCLUDE A LARGER PICTURE OF THE INSIDE OF THIS CARD - HERE IT IS.  ISN'T THAT A GORGEOUS DIE!




I hope you will join us in our first challenge of the new year.
