Joan's Garden Challenge
Finally, I was able to finish and upload a card. This past week both time and computer problems hampered my creativity. I'm really going to have to start saving my pennies for a new computer. My husband was able to install a new power device in my tower and when I got power back my DSL modem went down. Now my mouse is acting up, that I can kinda deal with.
This card is for the challenge over at Joan's Garden . She challenged us to make a card using the colors purple and green, only use a strip of DP and add a butterfly. If you haven't yet checked out Joan's Garden please do. She has a wonderful array of products, which include popular stamps sets from many companies, spellbinders, paper from many manufactures and of course the newest items from CHA.
On with card details;
I knew right away what DP I wanted to use. I don't know the name of the dp, I purchased it over 2 years ago in a package from the dollar store. I used GKD PL violet and green apple as my cardstock. The stamp image is from Nina's set called Hugs and Prayers at Gina K Designs. This set is really pretty and contains a wonderful humming bird.
The butterfly is from Flora Doodles by Petaloo. I add two Hero Arts pearls to anchor the image.
The image was stamped in Tim Holtz distressed Concord Grape and embossed with clear powder so I could color with copics.
Thats it for today. I have to work from noon to six so I don't think I will have much time to play:(.
I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
