Joan's Challenge Red, Black, and White

Good Morning Ladies,
Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there! I hope you get lots hugs from your children!
Today I have a card for Joan's Challenge Red, Black, and White
You can see and enter the challenge here...
The requirements this week are:
Make a flower using Vellum
Use the colors Red, Black, and White
Use a die-cut border
Use a sentiment
Use something sold at
Here is my challenge card...
You should have known I could work a dog into this challenge. I have the red, white, and black covered. Now for the rest of the card. I created my vellum flower using a Cheery Lynn fringed cutie #3 rolled flower die. I recently purchased this flower die at Joan's. I am here to tell you this is the cutest rolled flower. So easy to make and just fun!  A red pearl creates the center for this flower. For my border die I used the new grass die I purchased at Joan's recently. It is an Impression Obsession die. Perfect for my picket fence dies. The fence die I used on this card is a purchase I made at Joan's some time ago. I love this fence die. Oh heck I love fence dies. I just ordered and received from Joan this past week. My house die was also a recent die purchase from Joans. This die is by Memory Box. It worked perfect for this card. My little Labrador dog is an art impression stamp I also purchased at Joan's. She ordered this and three other dogs for me. Joan will special order items for you. My sentiment is from Cloud 9 cut with a spellbinder die set. Joan also carries spellbinders.
Thanks Joan and Selma for another great challenge!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
