Joan's Garden Challenge #5


Hi this week at Joan's Garden it's all about vintage and handmade flowers. Here is the recipe;
1. Use Coral/pink and Green for your colors
2. A Birthday Sentiment
3. Vintage Paper
4. Handmade or Punch flower

For my Card base I used Gina K Designs PL Pink, some Olive from my stash embossed with a cb Swiss Dot folder for the mat.
My dp is from K&Company Jubilee Die-Cut mat pad. I cut my image out with Spellbinders label four sponged it while still in the nestie with TH Worn Lipstick and Antique Linen over-top to make the coral color. I stamped my TH bird image with rangers Juniper paint dabber. For my handmade flower I used the same green trim I put across the card. Threaded some old floral wire I had laying around through the upper portion, gathered the trim in a circle twisted the wire repeated for a second layer. I added an antique looking button to the middle for the flower center. The saying below the image is from Gina K's Tag Lines set.
Thanks for stopping by and looking.
I hope your day is going great :) We just had 4 more inches of that white stuff.
