Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge


It is time for a new challenge over at Joan's Gardens.  The week you are to create a card as follows:

Use Blue, White and Green
Use a Flower that has a pattern
Use an Oval
Use a stamped sentiment

For my card I used a piece of design paper from the "Reflections Collections 6x6" pad by Prima.   The ovals are two dies from the Marianne Design LR0235 die set. Dimensional tape was used under both of the ovals to give it some dimension.  The sentiment is from the Our Daily Bread "Birthday Blessings" stamp set.  The rose was created with the same design paper as the background. I used the MFT "Royal Rolled Rose" die.   Behind it I added pieces from the new Memory Box "Bali Corner".  It was cut twice  and the flowers were cut off the stem from a die cut using blue and white design paper. 

On the left of the oval I added three of the Memory Box "Hollyhock Stems".  I used a piece of green card stock and a piece of design paper layered together for each stem so I could cut off the flowers and attach them to the green stem.  Kaiser Craft blue pearls were added to the center of the flowers.
