Joan's Gardens Challenge Week 7

     A rainy day is always a good time to play!  This week the challenge at Joan's Gardens inspired me to use more of my new Unity KOM called "Let Love Grow". 

The rules for this weeks challenge are:

Use and oval-  I used SB Floral Ovals
Use vellum- I used white which I toned down with Old Paper Distress Ink
Use polka Dots- I used Bo Bunny Double Dot collection

     I stamped with Distress Inks, and the colors are Peeled Paint, Gathered Twigs, and Old Paper.
For embellishments, I used mini brads, hemp, and a small Avery shipping tag which I cut down.  My shammrock stamps are clear embossed on the vellum.

    This was really fun!  Hope you are having a super weekend, and thanks for stopping by.

This card is so very pretty, Mary Anne. I love the flowers and your piercing and the sentiment all came together so nicely. Sorry I'm behind again on commenting. I've been looking but not commenting lately. No energy at all. Hopefully next week I'll get back to some sort of life.
