Joan's Touch Challenge #14

Good Morning Ladies,
Last week and early this week just got away from me. I took my dad and uncle camping for four days last week. A good time was had by all despite the weather.
Today I have a card for Joan's Touch Challenge #14 You can see and join the challenge here
The requirements this week are as follows:
Use a die
Use black on the card.
Use embellishments.
Use something that can be purchased at
And here is my card.....
 I received a package from Terri at Joan's Gardens the other day. And in it was what I ordered and my prize from winning the challenge a couple of weeks ago. My prize was Darcie's Heart and Home stamp set JCS178. Now Terri could not have picked a better prize for me. It is a bee stamp set and I just love it!! This challenge was perfect to use this set. Thanks Terri! The clover and bee image was stamped on Bristol paper and colorized with Prisma pencil and Gamsol. I then set about finding out how I could make this work for the challenge. I grabbed my Sizzix oval frame-lits die set #657563. This can purchased at Joan's. I created the card base out of black using this die set. I set the die on the edge of a fold and cut it to make a card. Next I took Cheery Lynn die DL153 Polynesian Sails Oval and cut it out of yellow. I purchased this die from Joan's Gardens.  I placed this on top of the card base that I made. The stamped image was cut with the same Sizzix die set. I then added my embellishments which is a black pearl sprig and a sheer white bow.
 The card opened to the inside.
The inside sentiment. This sentiment is from the same prize set.
Thanks once again for a great challenge Joan!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
