Joan's Weekly Challenge #17

LaBlanche stamped used

It is time for another challenge at Joan's Gardens. Here is what you need  for this week's challenge: 

■Colors -Blue/Green
■Use a Lady
■Include a Large Embellishment
■Attach a bow

This week Joan's challenge really is a challenge for me.  I don't feel I create vintage type cards very well.  The lady I used is from LaBlanche.  She is called "Lady Dreaming".   I used the Sizzix "Wreath" embossing folder to frame her.  It was embossed and  cut out with scissors then sponged with green Distress ink.  The lady was stamped, colored with Copic markers then cut out with an Oval Nestability.  It was glued to the inside of the embossed frame.   To pull in the green and blue, I selected a page from the "Sparkling Spring" paper pack.  The embellishment is from a package of Prima Flowers and matches the flowers in the design paper.  It worked out great for my large embellishment.   A piece of vintage lace was attached across the bottom, then a green velvet ribbon attached down the center with ScorTape.   A green bow was added to complete the card. 

You can go over to Joan's Gardens to get all the information about the challenge.  Hope you will join us. 

All products used on  this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

Now Selma, what would a challenge be if it didn't challenge you from time to time. You did a great job and your lady looks beautiful. I will get you to love doing vintage themes yet.
