Joan's Garden


I am posting a card now for Joan's Garden where they are just starting do challenges, as a matter of fact this is challenge #2. I did not play the first one but as several of my friends buy items from Joan and highly recommend her site I wanted to participate. We were to create a vintage card using a spellbinder die. I used my Labels 4 dies and card stock from Bazill, K&Co Ancestry.com and SU chocolate chip. The Paris stamp is from Tim Holtz's set French market and the sentiment is SU Short and Sweet. I used Martha Stewart's punch Cornice on the top piece of chocolate brown and embossed it with a texturing plate. I like how this turned out. I like vintage cards but never feel that mine are up to par. I hope you will visit Joan, as she has some great specials going on and the blog is so much fun to look at! Thanks for the chance to play and for all of you looking at my card. Come back to visit anytime...I also have another post tonight if you have time.
