Good Morning Ladies,
I had a card ready to post this morning. But I checked my e-mail first. Joan's new challenge was already up. So I went to the table and began to work thinking I would post the other card later this morning. Well I worked and I worked and nothing seemed to be working. And then it started to flow and lo and behold I had finished the challenge card. So that is the card I am posting this morning.
Joan's Challenge Birds is what I dubbed this challenge. You can see the challenge by clicking here... http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2012/08/this-weeks-challenge_9.html
The requirements for this challenge are...
Make a Thank You card
Use purple and green
Use something to do with music
Use a bird
Here is my challenge card....
http://www.atjoansgardens.com/ As well as other elements on my card. A lot of creating happened between the background paper and the rest of the card. I took another piece of La Blanche paper and stamped thank you on it and sponged tim holtz concord ink on it. I then cut this with a spellbinder oval set. The bird cage was die cut using a memory box die. I added a strip of pearls to the bird cage and placed two plastic doves on top. My purple and white flowers were created using a spellbinders floral die cut from glitter card stock. Rhinestone swirls from K&Company were the perfect match to go down the sides of the card. Oh yes and just a wee piece of ribbon through the top of the bird cage loop.
Thanks again Selma and Joan for the wonderful challenge!
