Joan's Garden #7

Exciting news .......... Last week at Joan's Garden challenge #6
I won!
I spoke with Joan this weekend before she left for CHA in Chicago. I ordered some Justrite stamps and Websters pages. I was shocked to shipping was under $5.00.
This week Joan challenged us to make cards with happy bright colors, flowers of some sort and it has to be for a birthday.
OK I had to think on that for a bit. Oh look hanging on my peg board right in front of me is this wonderful clearance set by Me and My Big Ideas. Truthfully I didn't even know who made it. It was reduced from $14.00 to $4.00.
Ok so I have not opened it (it's only been 14 months).
I looked and there sat this wonderful chunky flower. My thoughts went immediately to my acrylic dabbers by Ranger and TH. I have the colors Sunset Orange on the flower and Juniper on the leaves. I did add some crystal stickles just to shine it up a bit! For the cardstock I used GKD PL Mango and Lemondrop. The dp is from a mat stack called Mango Frost by DCWV. Ribbon unkown Gems from GKD. The sediment is a wood stamp purchased a while back manufacture unknown.
Have a wonder day and thanks for stopping by!
