Time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. You can check out all the details of the challenge over at Joan's Gardens.
I started with the background for this card. I love this Sizzix embossing folder; it is called "Hearts & Ornate Frame Set". That is a large embossed heart in the center. I love all the lattice design on this embossing folder. Can you see the tiny little dots in it? I stamped one of the JustRite borders from the "Classic Lace Edges Two" stamp set along the bottom. To add a little more color to the card I cut two strips of card stock to go between the embossed area and the stamped border.
The flower was created using the Cheery Lynn "Cuties 4" die. The black foliage is a piece of the Marianne Design "Forest Branch". I cut off the top and bottom and used only the middle section for each side of the flower. The corners are from the Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" die set. To complete the card I added some black Kaiser Craft pearls.
I hope you will join us this week in our challenge. We always love to see your beautiful cards. Remember, everyone who wins in the weekly challenge will be eligible for that big $100 Gift Certificate to Joan's Gardens that will be awarded at the end of the year.
