Joans Challenge!

Good Morning!
I had a chance to make a card for Joan's Garden  challenge! She always has a fun recipe :
  • Use the colors Pink and Green
  • Create a thank you card.
  • Use some kind of stripes
  • Use something scalloped



I took my picture last night and the green looks gray! My card base is whisper white layered with very vanilla and basic gray dp. My focal image upsy daisy was colored with pretty in pink, so saffron and certainly celery. I then added some flowers from my stash and the butterflies were punched out of vellum. I'm actually pretty happy with how it turned out! Have yourself a great day.... off to work I go!

I love the soft colors on this one. You always do such a great job with that stamp. This definitely looks like Spring. And no, Patti, our tulips are NOT popping up yet but the snow is almost gone. It must be warmer over there. Thanks for joining us again for the weekly challenge at Joan's Gardens.
