Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge

It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens..  

Joan has a fun challenge again this week.  Here are the requirements: 
  • Polka Dots
  • Vellum
  • Oval

For the polka dots, I used a piece of white vellum and embossed it in the eBosser Delicate  Dots embossing folder.  It was layered over pink card stock.  You all know I love to work with vellum, so I decided to create my flowers out of a printed vellum.  I used the Spellbinders "Spiral Blossom" die for the largest flower and the MFT "Royal Rolled Rose" die for the two smaller one.  Two rolled roses were die cut out of the vellum for each flower.  Before shaping the flowers I sponged on "Picked Raspberry" Distress Ink on the bottom only of each die cut flower.  Then to get a very full looking rose, I layered two of the die cut roses together, slightly offsetting one on top of the other, then used the self-closing tweezers to roll them up.  I love how delicate the roses look out of vellum.  

The next requirement was to use an "oval".   First I die cut the Joy Crafts (6002/0147) doily then layered the Marianne Design "Oval" (LR0235) on top of it.  I sponged on Spun Sugar Distress Ink around the edges, to make the oval stand out.  In the center of the oval I stamped one of the sentiments from the JustRite "Seeds of Summer" stamp set.  The oval was attached with dimensional tape.

The flowers were added then foliage from the Marianne LR0192, LR0157, and LR0156 die sets were added.  I die cut one pink and one white of the first two and added only white leaves.  The corners are die cut using the Joy Crafts (6002/0136) dies.  The butterfly is from the Cheery Lynn "Exotic Butterfly" set.  It was attached with dimensional tape.  I always think the Kaiser Craft pearls add that special finishing touch, so pink pearls were added to complete this card.

Beautiful Card - You make the most gorgous flowers. I love seeing your blog and when you don't post I know you are having a bad day and that makes me sad. You are the master pieces.

Selma this is so very beautiful. I just bought some vellum from Joan & am anxious to try making flowers with it. I think I have a few printed sheets so am going to give that a try as well. Your cards are always so stunning & love everything you put on them. You do make the most gorgeous flowers from dies.
Hugs, Janie

Selma I see you are getting spammers comments too. (I've gotten bunches of them in the past few days)---BUT Hey, this card is over the top gorgeous. It is so delicate and detailed. You have the greatest ideas for layering these delicate diecuts. THANK you for the inspiration, and I hope you're all back to 100% now!
