Blessings To You

Hey everybody,

It's time for another challenge at Twist of Faith, and this time around our challenge is to create a shaped card (something other than square or rectangle).  This definitely was a challenge for me, because I needed to do something that didn't require dies to make the shape.  Luckily I found inspiration at Maria's Studio, and you can see the project she made that inspired my card.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Digi Darla Designs, and I chose this adorable stamp titled "Flower Girl" that I colored with my Pro Markers.  The winner of this challenge will get "5" stamps of their choice, so I hope you'll join in the chance to win.

My good friend Tona loaned me her Martha Stewart 4 petal punch, so that I could cut out all these little flowers - Thank you Tona! 

Other mediums used:

Papers: Floral is made by Martha Steward Crafts that I got on sale at Michaels, and the solid colors are from my stash.

The darkest colors are a lot lighter than they appear in my photo.  I just wasn't able to get them lighter without changing all the other colors.

Ribbon: from my good friend Tona (bless you girl!)
Pearls: Pearl Stickers from Michaels
Swirls: Beading Wire from Walmart, and the paper swirls made with my sizzix dies.
Butterfly and leaves: butterfly and larger leaves were cut out by hand, and the smaller leaves, again my friend Tona cut some for me with her spellbinder's dies.
Border and scallop: border - made with my Martha Stewart border Punch, scallop - I just used an off brand scallop pair of scissors.

Thanks for taking the time out of your day and stopping by.

Judy, this is such a neat card format, and you have done quite a lovely job with it. The flowers are lovely, but your little image is top notch. It is the "perfect" insert for the "pot." Great card!
