Joan, formerly of Joan's Garden, has started up her challenges again. I really enjoy Joan's challenges. She does a little recipe that really makes you think and put things together that maybe you usually wouldn't. Well, it works like that for me. I missed the first couple but here I am with my card for number three. Joan's recipe this week was embossing folder, green and white and an oval.
I letterpressed a piece of green card using Sizzix Damask embossing folder and Distress Mowed Lawn ink. I used Cheery Lynn Emperor Swan Doily die to cut the aperture and backed it with paper from DCWV Cherry Limeade stack. Then I cut the swan in white and used DI to colour the frame. I added Cheery Lynn Tiny Bubbles Border. All the flowers are Cheery Lynn dies: Wheat Heads, Build a Flower #1 for the leaves, Build a Flower #3 Embellishments for those tiny little flowers and Cuties 2 for the big flowers. I added a ribbon and a double bow and some more of those tiny flowers cut from the DCWV paper. All the pearls and the pretty brad are from Storyteller.
