Joan's Garden Challenge


Several of my friends play each week at Joans Gardens and I keep meaning to play along with them, but sometimes life gets in the way and sometimes I don't have all of the supplies needed, but this week I have finally made a card for Joan!! The recipe this week is to use the colors brown and tan, embellish with buttons, use 3 layers (prefers nesties) and a fall flower. I started with a base of SU kraft card stock and then used dp from Making Memories and Die Cuts with a View which I die cut with my Spellbinders Peony nestibilities. The image is a sunflower from Gina K designs set "Year of Flowers" and the background is stamped with images from GKD's set "Autumn Beauty". I used pop dots to elevate the layers and added buttons from GKD threading a piece of the dp through one of those. My images are stamped using Versafine Vintage Sepia and I sponged with the same ink. I am really happy with this card and hope that you like it too!
Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday!
