Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge


I had so much fun with this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens.  Joan asked me to create a card using a fan for the challenge. This week your challenge will be to create a card or project that includes:
  • Use some type of Fan -  stamped, die cut, etc
  • Use colors Peach, Cream, and Green
  • Use Lace
  • Use Pearls

Please go over to Joan's Gardens to see the complete rules for  linking your card to the challenge and to see what the prize will be for one lucky, randomly drawn, winner.

The lace border was created with the Martha Stewart "String Lace" corner/border punch.  The background paper is from an older Graphic 45 paper pad; the corners were rounded off and glued to the String Lace piece.

 I love the newer Marianne Design "Vintage Fan" die so created a real fan with it.  Isn't that fan piece gorgeous.  The fan die comes with two pieces - the delicate embossed piece on top and an angle wing if you want to use it on the backside.  I used a piece of peach the Graphic 45 design paper for the angle wing.  The fan pieces were die cut using cream card stock then lightly sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The embossed fan was glued to the angle wing. The five pieces were attached with a large pearl brad I had in my stash, then fanned out and a piece of dimensional tape added to the back of each one.  The fan was then attached to the design paper.  A bow was added to the bottom of the fan then the Memory Box "Kaleidoscope" butterfly attached in the center of the fan.   Small Kaiser Craft pearls were added on the fan pieces and in the center of the butterfly.

I was so happy with this piece that I decided to attach it to one of the $1.00 wood frames I got at Michael's.  I did not do anything to the finish on the frame but did sponge Tea Dye Distress Ink around the edges.  

There are two styles of the Marianne Design Vintage Fan.  I used the Vintage Fan Two.  The Vintage Fan One is also beautiful and you can see these at this link.

I hope you will join us this week in our challenge.  Joan and I love to see your entries.

So that means the camera only activates when you're using an app that needs it, such as with a Skype video chat.

Generally speaking, customer feedback based improvements made everything
much easier to handle. Obviously, there may be some changes in the images produced by the pre and production run 5DIIIs.
This comes in specially handy when driving a car and you
have a i - Pod Touch stand with you so you can easily slip your phone into that
and not worry about it getting damaged in any manner.
