This Weeks Challenge at Joan's Gardens

     Morning everyone!  I am fortunate to be home from work today, and got a quick jump on the challenge over at Joan's Gardens.

Here are all the details:
Use red and black
Use and embossing folder
Use a flower as your focal image
Have either a stamped or die cut border at the bottom.

     The card stocks are Pure Luxury from Gina K. Designs.  I recently  got a pad of Authentique Carefree paper, so I was anxious to try it out.  For an embossing folder, I used the Moroccan embossing folder by Cuttlebug.  The stamps used are from Heartfelt Creations:  HCPC 3403 Shabby Chic Lace Precut Set, HCPC 3318 Daisy Patch Flowers PreCut Set.  There are also diecuts behind my flower, and they are the Mini Flourish from Cheery Lynn.  There is a single ivory pearl in the center of my flower.

     Wow, that was fun!  I may be back with another card, since I have the whole day to play!  Have a super Thursday
