Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge


It's time for a new Challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This week you are to design a "Springtime" card.  The color theme should be blue and white.  Please include some kind of lattice.

For the background I used the new Cheery Lynn "French Lattice Small Frame" (FRM132).  Cheery Lynn also has a French Lattice Large Frame (FRM133).  Both of these frames are so pretty to use for backgrounds.  The stamp used is the Memory Box "Chrysanthemum Frame" (G1857).  This is the frame used on one of the Memory Box videos you can watch at Joan's Gardens. You can click here to watch this video. Joan does have a good supply of these stamps in stock.  It was white embossed and colored using Distress Inks.  The birdhouse, fence and bird were die cut using the Marianne (LR0205) dies.  Also one of the birds is from another Marianne die set that has another  style birdhouse, a bird facing the opposite direction, and a die for grass (LR0205).  The border down the right side is the Cheery Lynn "Flower Chain Border" (B132).   A pretty silk bow was added to complete the card.

I hope you will join us in our challenge again this week.  Please go over to Joan's Gardens to read all the details and see what prize she will be giving away this week.  We love to see your entries.

Hi Selma
Another great card can I ask which die you used to cut around the stamp I have some spellbinder dies will these make a background for this stamp? Or would it be possible for you to give the dimension of the stamped image please?
