It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. This week the challenge is to create a card with the following:
For my card I created a vellum "Poppy" created with the new Susan's Garden "Poppy" die set by Sizzix. The petals look so real in vellum. I used the new Sizzix tool kit to shape the flower and leaves. I'm not sure I like it or not, but I added some Green Flower Soft on the leaves as poppy leaves are "fuzzy". The design paper is from my "scrap" bin. The sentiment and label are from the new JustRite "Grand Sentiments" stamp set. There are 36 stamps in this set; I love the great variety of sentiments in it. I used VersaFine Ink to stamp the sentiment and label then clear embossed them. The center on one of the labels was cut out and raised with dimensional tape.
On the bottom, under the poppy, I added a Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" border. The border on the outside of the card was created with the Martha Stewart "Vintage Floral" punches. A red silk bow was added to complete this card.
I hope you will join us this week in our challenge. Please go over to Joan's Gardens to see all the information about this challenge, to link your card, and to see what the prize is for this challenge.
