Spring Card for Challenges
Here is a spring card which I made for some challenges.
First, due up tonight:
Soartful Challenges http://jeanette-soartfulchallenges.blogspot.com/ which is where I snagged the image for inspiration. It originally is from Suzee Q on Flickr.
When I saw the umbrella, I knew I had to enter a card using the Spanish Marbling paper that I made in a workshop. The colors matched perfectly.
This card also is for the Bearydo Paperie blog contest to make a card that incorporates your favorite embellishment. I'd have to say I can't seem to do without the amazing free images I get to download from my favorite websites. (See my Blog Candy Jar to the right for more details.)
Finally, I put this card in the "Card Challenge Corner" on Simply Scrapping Crafts.com for the March-Second Week challenge to make a card using the distress technique. After cutting the oval image, I used the blade of my scissors to distress the edge. This is a very simple technique but adds a little texture and dimension.
(I've replaced the photo with a better one taken with newly purchased camera batteries.) A special thanks to Angela Holt who sent me one of her fabric roses. I added 3 pearls to it.
