Happy Monday Everyone!

I just want to wish everyone a wonderful Monday and a great work week!  I have a new card for you today and I'm going to enter in Joan's Gardens Challenge #9  joanscreations.blogspot.com.  She challenged everyone to make a pink and white card and punch 4 corners with a Martha Stewart punch.  Here is my card......


I used watercolor paper from my stash and punched 4 corners with a Martha Stewart punch, then I used a Spellbinders Die and embossed the center of the card.  Next I used Ranger Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet, and used a water brush to add some pink color to the card.  I made homemade flowers colored with the Victorian Velvet ink and added a pearl center.  Next I made leaves using the same Martha Stewart punch and some green card stock.  I Used Forest Moss to hi-lite the leaves and scrunched them to make them stand up some.  I put this layer on a piece of pink card stock and mounted all onto a white card base.  A little pearl in each corner and the card is done.  I hope you enjoy this!

PS:
Joan asked how I made the flowers.  I used an EK Success five petal punch and punched watercolor paper, then colored with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink from Ranger.  Once that was done, I embossed the flowers with an embossing tool and pad and I used a tooth pick to pinch the leaves into peaks.  I glued three flowers together offset to add dimension.

It is supposed to be hot here again this week, so try and stay cool!  At least we are getting back into the 60's at night.  There might just be a light at the end of the tunnel!
