Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge

It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Garden.. This week the challenge is to create a card with:
  • Framed lattice background
  • Any type of flowers
  • A bird
  • A vertical greeting

 I used some new dies from both Cheery Lynn and Memory Box to create this card.  The flowers are Petunias created with the new Build A Flower #2 set.  I shaped 5 of the large flower petals and glued them on the large 5-point flower base.  I used two different stamens from the BAF #2 Embellishment die cut set for the center of the flowers.  The small leaves are from the Cheery Lynn "Flourish Leaf Strip".  The pretty little vine is one of the new Memory Box vines called "Flutter Vine".  It makes a pretty filler behind your flowers.  

For the frame I die cut the Cherry Lynn "Lattice #2" and framed it with the Cheery Lynn "Victoria Garden Doily Frame".   The design paper is from the new Memory Box "Viola" paper pack.  The hummingbird is new from Cheery Lynn; it is so realistic because the wing and tail actually have feathers cut in them.  You can even pull the wing out a little to make it dimensional.  This is the most realistic die cut hummingbird I have ever seen.  I sometimes need sentiments that are vertical so I am loving using the new Memory Box Alphabet dies.  Joan has three different alphabets you can choose from.  

I hope you will join us this week in our challenge.
