Running Vine


Good morning! It was so pretty here yesterday, I went and bought a bunch of flowers for pots, I finished up with 9 flower pots sitting around on pourches, I love em. Adds color and beauty around any house. I got this free image from Isabella's Sketchbook, it's for challenge 5. Be sure and check them out. This is the first challenge I have done with them and I must tell ya, I love their images. I'll be back, thanks Linda for telling me about this one. this week the winner could win 6 free images, how cool is that!!! So be sure and check them out. I printed 2 copies on printed paper from Stampin Up. Lightly shaded one copy with chalk, then cut the flowers out with the other copy and popped them up on the lattice I punched out with a Martha Stewart border punch. The navy paper with white dots is from Basic Grey June Bug. I added white pearls to the center of the flowers to finish it off. Thanks for taking time to drop by and look, I do appreciate it and your wonderful comments.

Sorry I am so late commenting, gf, but I loaded some cards and took a nap. It felt really good and now DH is cooking steaks on the grill. Now, as for this gorgeous card, You Rock!I would have never thought to put it on that polka dot paper. It looks wonderful!

OLGAAAAA!!! Hi! I haven't visited you in so long...I was so happy when I saw your name as one of our challenge entries! I'm lovin so many things about the way you used the image on this card...I really think it's neat that you stamped the image on patterned paper and the soft blush of color on the flowers is so lovely! Then the flowers cut out and used on the side border to tie it all together...just a wonderful card! Hugs!! ;D Diana Q
