Joan's Thursday Weekly Challenge

It's time for another Weekly Challenge at Joan's Gardens.  Last week we had 29 entries and we want to thank everyone for participating.  One person will be selected, in a random drawing, for the weekly prize and also be entered into the drawing at the end of the year for a $100 gift certificate from Joan's Gardens.  Joan and I have been very busy all week completing projects for her workshops this weekend.  Joan asked me to design a card for the challenge.   
This week the challenge is: 
  • Use the colors Pink and Green
  • Create a thank you card.
  • Use some kind of stripes
  • Use something scalloped

 This is a 5.5 inch square card.  I used a small piece of design paper from my "stash" and mounted it on light green card stock.  Three sets of Sizzix leaves were die cut and placed on the front of card.  Three flowers were created using the "Super Giant Begonia Petals" punch and the large sun punch used for the stamens.  There is one large flower and two smaller ones.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "You're So Sweet Set".  It was colored with markers and stamped on white card stock then cut out with a scallop Nestie.  A pink bow was added under the sentiment to complete the card. 

I hope you will join us in this week's challenge.  You can read all the details about this challenge at Joan's Gardens.

All products used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.  The flower punches have been so popular and have been on back order, but if you are interested in getting them, I urge you to email or call Joan and place your order so you will be on the list to receive them as soon as they arrive.
