Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #15

When I first read Joan's challenge for this week, I let out a groan. Oh yes I did! She has asked us to do 4 things:

1. Use the colors green, blue, and orange.
2. Use a printed ribbon
3. Include 3 different patterns
4. Add something that dangles

Here is my fun card!
My card base is Grass Green, Pure Luxury card stock. I then included 3 different patterns of paper from the Basic Grey, Marrakech paper collection. My stamp is from Inky Antics and is colored in Copics. I distressed my image with Baja Breeze and Old Olive ink from SU!. My ribbon is organza with glittered polka dots of blue and green. For my dangle I added an orange/rust tag from K&Co, tied on with copper cording. Oh goodness, I almost forgot that I used tiny orange Prima's and pearls!

Having one of those great, crafty Sunday afternoons, with football as background noise. "Go Eagles"! If you have a minute, stop over at Dee's blog, and check out her cool Halloween card!. So great to see my DD being crafty also! She has been absent for a bit.

You totally nailed Joan's challenge in a big way! I saw that and groaned too, thinking no way I could incorporate all those recipe items, but you did a great job with this card! I love the little bluebird in the mailbox and especially those tiny primas! Super cute card! Wasn't today beautiful!? I stamped with the NASCAR race on in the background and was SO disappointed when my favorite driver (who led the race most of the day) ran out of gas with just TWO laps to go :( Ah well, there's always next week:)
