Joan's Gardens Challenge #13

Have you checked out Joan's Garden's fun Challenge this week?  I have been away but as soon as I saw her challenge I was excited to create a card using all the elements of the challenge.  You are to make a card or project this week and use the following:
  • Color - Deep rich purple
  • Embellishment - a Spellbinders Pendant - or a punch making a design
  • Cut out flower that you color
  • Punched Border
I used three JustRite stamp sets to create my card:  Breath of Spring; Beautiful Blossoms; and Just A Note.  The design paper is from the KaiserCraft "Lilac Avenue" collection.  The dp was attached to a white card.  A deep purple border was punched out with a Martha Stewart punch and added to the bottom.  The daisies are from the JustRite Beautiful Blossoms set.  They were stamped with black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers then cut out.  The oval is from the JustRite "Breath of Spring" stamp set.  It was stamped using a deep purple ink and the border was colored using a Copic marker. 

The Spellbinder pendant I used is called "Lotus".  I cut it out using white card stock.  I attached it to a light green card stock with adhesive then cut around the edges of the pendant so my background was solid green.  I didn't like the purple in the dp showing through.  Each element is attached with dimensionals.  A pretty deep purple silk ribbon was used to make a bow. 

A Prima flower I had was light purple so I used a sponge dauber to add a darker purple ink it so it matches the other items on the card. A large black brad was added to the center.  A Martha Stewart butterfly was added.  The Greeting is from the JustRite "Just A Note" stamp set.  It was cut out with a scalloped Nestie and sponged prior to taking it out of the die.

I hope you will join in on this fun challenge.  You can get all the details and submit your card at Joan's Garden's challenge #13.
