Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge

It is time for a new weekly challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This week you are to create a card with three vertical strips on the front. 

For my card I used design paper from the Memory Box "Viola" paper pad.  I use the design paper from this pad a lot because I love every sheet in it.   My card is 5.5" x 6".   I cut three pieces of the design paper and attached them to a white piece of card stock that is slightly larger, then attached each strip to the card base.  The pretty doily in the center is one of the Spellbinders "Marvelous Squares" dies; it was attached on dimensional tape.  The corners are also from this Spellbinders die set.  The sentiment is a Savvy die.  It was die cut and attached with Glue N' Seal.

The flowers are from the new Heartfelt Creations "Mini Vintage Floret PreCut Set".  They were white embossed and die cut with the matching Spellbinders dies.  I used both sizes of this flower from this stamp set.  In the center of each flower I added a Kaiser Craft Black Pearl.  The leaves around the flowers are the Cheery Lynn "Flourish Leaf Strip".  

I hope you will join us this week in our challenge.  Be sure to go over to Joan's Gardens to check out all the rules for this challenge and to see what the prize will be.  I bet all of you who have entered our challenges, and been selected as a winner, are anxious for that drawing that will be held at the end of the year for the $100 Gift Certificate to Joan's Gardens.  There is still plenty of time to win by entering the challenges each week.
