Joan's Challenge


, yes I survied the dog sitting.............my 2 dogs are happy poor little Keaton is gone, they did not like him or warm up to him. 
I crafted yesterday and the first card I made was for Joans challenge.  She ask that we:
■Create a card very similar to Selma's Card
■Use an embossed background
■Use a lace border
■Use Selma's tutorial to create flowers
■Use Pink and White
here is what I came up with.  I used the following: Sizzix's Petals A Plenty and Loving Thoughts embossing folders.  Heartfelt Creations 712 Bella Rose Die and  3390 Bella Rose Leaves.  A Martha Stewart Fern punch and Eyelet Lace punch to make my lace border.  Cherry Lynn's Fanciful Flourish, Memory Box Flower die, and Spellbinders Spiral Blossom Three which I borrowed from Becky!  .......okay, I'm gone I'll catch ya with ya later!

Thank goodness all survived the doggie sitting. It must have been hard on the boys to share mom, I know Lucky hates it. Your card is just stunning, you just come up with the prettiest cards, using dies and embossing, I just stare at them. I would like to say it is my next goal, but that bar is too high :)
