Joan's Weekly Challenge

 It time for another Weekly Challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This week the challenge is:

■ a monocromatic card with a splash of color
■ use an embossing folder
■ something die cut
■ something dimensional

This is a 6" square  card.  The embossing folder is from the Sizzix "Birds & Wreath" set.  I really love this embossing folder.  I used the other embossing folder from this set on  my blue tag the other day.   The corners and pretty die cut image in the center of the embossed folder are from the Spellbinder "Parisian Accents" die cut set.  The flourish is from the Sizzix "Elegant Flourishes" die.  The flowers were created with the medium "blossom" punch and the stamens are created with the frilly snowflake punch.   The sentiment is from the new JustRite stamp set "Charmed".  There are 15 stamps in this set.  The pretty butterflies are from the PinkPaislee "Butterfly Garden" Collection.  These are just gorgeous butterflies that look so realistic.  All the pieces were layered as shown.    

 The products used to create this card are all new items in Joan's Gardens store. 

Hope you will join us this week for another fun challenge at Joan's Gardens.
