The card I want to share with you today is to be entered into the Challenge at Joan's Gardens
This is Joan's Challenge #19 and it calls for the following:
Paper-Flower background paper - preferably Webster PagesRosette or paper flower
Stamp - Sentiment - preferably JustRite
Border Punch -preferably Martha Stewart
I didn't have any Webster Pages paper but I did have My Mind's Eye in a floral and that is what I used.
The little rose is homemade and it mimics the Prima baby roses. These are so much fun to make....I just typed "Making Homemade Prima Flowers" on U-Tube and up popped several videos to watch. So I just learned from that! The sentiment says "Every day holds the possibility of a Miracle"...It is a JustRite stamp. I stamped the sentiment with Ranger Distress Ink and then cut out with a Spellbinders Ovals die then distressed the edges also. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edge of the card...Pretty straight forward and easy peasy! I had a stray piece of braid laying around that already had the scor-tape on it so that went behind the sentiment. I knew I'd have a use for that little scrap! The stamen were purchased from Hobby Lobby and there were several in the package, so you will be seeing them a lot around here! I added a little Ranger Crystal Stickles to the stamen to add a little shimmer.
I hope you enjoy this little card....it will be going into my box for the nursing home ladies! As for me, my list is getting longer and longer on the to-do side and not much going over onto the done side. I'm beginning to feel a little overwhelmed and out of step....so bear with me for a little while as I try and change this list to the done side. My creations will be things that I can do with little thinking, and on the run.....
