Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge

 It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This week we would like to have you create a floral card:
  • Have three dimensional flowers with greenery
  • Use a Floral Design Paper
  • Use A doily
  • Use a product from Joan's Gardens

I hope you like this card as much as I do.  My card base is 5.5" square.  I used the largest Cheery Lynn "Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frame" and layered it with a piece of glittered floral design paper from the Best Creation, Inc 6x6" Glitter Paper Pad.  A corner rounder was used to round the corners to fit inside the Stacker Frame.  The pretty doily is the MFT "Dizzy Doily".  On the top portion of the doily, I used one of the stamps from the Penny Black "Gratitude" stamp set.  It was stamped using VersaFine black ink then clear embossed.

The pretty roses were created with the MFT "Large Rolled Rose".  These roses are so easy to create because you just use your tweezers and roll them up.  I wanted a two shaded rose so used the Susan's Garden bright pink PanPastel down on the bottom portion of the petals.  After shading them, I shaped the petals with the largest stylus in the Susan's Garden Flower Tool Kit.  By shaping each petal, it made the rose more realistic.  Once rolled, I place some "Crafter Pick Ultimate Glue" on the circle at the base of the flower to hold the shape of the flower in place.

To decorate around the roses, I added some MFT "Royal Leaves".  I sponged on a little larger green after shaping the leaves.  Around these larger leaves, I added some Cheery Lynn leaves from the "Flourish Leaf Strip".  To finish off the arrangement, I die cut the Marianne Design "Decorative Elegance" die using three different shades of lavender card stock.  I added Ranger "Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy dry glitter" to match the glitter in the background design paper.

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