Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #16


Well I hit the publish button sooner than I intended to; so this post will be this afternoon instead of tomorrow morning.  Nothing like a crazy finger to throw your life into turmoil!  So here goes......

This afternoon I'm here to share another card I have made to enter in the  challenge over at Joan's Gardens   Joan's requirements this week were the following:

Use any size or kind of butterflies on your card
Use some type of scallops or lattice
Use yellow or gold colors
Use a patterned paper background
I think I did everything I was supposed to do on this one.  I started with a little Tea Cup Fairy image from Mo Manning and colored the image with Ranger Distress Inks.  I used a whole bunch of dies from Spellbinders and I will list them below.  I also used The Vivienne  Butterfly from Memory Box Dies.  I cut down the butterfly so it wouldn't overpower my image.  A little yellow seam binding colored with the distress ink and little glitter here and there and it is all set!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it!  It is such a fun image and I got play with my new dies from Spellbinders.  We all need a little Joy in our lives .....this is my joy! 
That is about it for me this afternoon....I hope you have a great weekend planned.  I also wish you joy in whatever you do!!
Supplies Used:
Spellbinders Dies:  Antique Frames and Accents, Edgeabilities Mix and Match Frames (Classic Edges Two) Mix and Match Classic Inserts (Classic Decorative Inserts Four, Floral Ovals, Classic Ovals Large
Pattern paper from Prima (Fairy Belle Collection) Ranger Distress Inks, Memory Box Dies, Mo Manning Image, yellow card stock and Canson watercolor paper for the card base

That is so funny, Glenda, you said Friday or Monday so I did not check last night. I am always so disappointed when there is nothing new for me to look at. Your card is fun and beautiful, I love the frames, the colors and that teacup image is so cute! Hope your Friday is a lovely one! Just keep pushing publish!
