Cooling Down.....

Well, it is Sunday, and we have much needed rain and now there is a cool down on the way.  We are so thankful for that!  I hope you have a wonderful Sunday planned...we are just going to veg-out and do nothing; maybe watch some football.  I plan to practice my coloring with Distress Inks or cross-stitch.  I love these days when I can do what I want.

Today, I want to show you the card I'm entering in Joan's Garden Challenge # 14.  You can find this challenge here:  Joan's Gardens.  Joan's challenge called for the colors: Red, Brown and Green.  Use some pearls and lace, Heartfelt Creations Stamps and Die if you have them.  Well it just so happens that I have one stamp set and one die from Heartfelt Creations.  So I used them.  Here is my card:

My stamp is from HCPC 3306 Posy Patch Garden Delights and the die is from HCD 704 Perfect Petals Die Cut.  These are both from Heartfelt creations and can be purchased at Joan's Gardens.  I stamped my image on Watercolor Paper and colored with Ranger Distress Inks.  I distressed the edges and mounted onto a piece of brown card stock from my stash.  I cut out the die and distressed it a little.  I added a few pearls a piece of lace, also distressed with ink and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and it is done!  I didn't use any designer paper because I really wanted the image to stand out.  I just love this watering can with flowers.

Oh Glenda, what a beautiful card. I love how you colored the flowers and watering can. It is amazing to me how everyone comes up with something totally different for the challenges.
This is absolutely terrific!

Thanks so much for playing in Joan's Gardens #14 Weekly Challenge. I love it!

Glenda you are so talented with your coloring, the flowers are beautiful, not to bright not to dull, just right, And the Can looks almost real. With the lace you added across them bottom it just finished it off!
As always, another Beautiful card!
