Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge


It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This week the colors to use will be Yellow, White and Black.   Please go over to Joan's Gardens for all the challenge rules and to see what the prize will be this week.

For my card I used a new Crafter's Companion embossing folder called "Floral", for the background.  This folder is 6"x6".   Love this size.   Joan has gotten in a lot of new Marianne Design dies and I have used several of them on this card.  The pretty frame is a "Craftables" frame (CR1241).    There are four different shape sets:  round, square, oval and rectangle.  In each package you get four different dies so there are lots of different things you can do with them.   The sentiment is from the JustRite "Vintage Rose Medallions" stamp set.  The pretty umbrella is also new from Marianne Designs.  It does not show up well in the photo, but it has little "Swiss" dots over the solid areas of it.  I backed it with black card stock and cut around the outer edge.  I think it is the prettiest die cut umbrella.  

The flowers were created with petals from the Cheery Lynn Build A Flower #2 dies and embellishments.  I used a variety of leaves behind the flowers:  Cheery  Lynn Build A Flower #3 for the large leaves; and many different Marianne Design leaves which are listed below.

I hope all of you will join us in our challenge this week.
