Bloggers Challenge- In Bloom

 Bloggers Challenge for this week is : In Bloom


I made this card for the Technique Newsletter- I had the privilege of Guest Designing- and the Varnished Mahogany is one of the new techniques from the latest newsletter. It is fast and easy and I love the look of it!

 The sentiment is a digi from Rain Drop Echo-it was a freebie file in the past and it is framed in a Nestability and I used Wisped Frames too. I added Roses from McMahon Five Designs. The punch is by MS and I used Kraft cardstock. I also used the bird punch from SU for the leaves.

 Bloggers challenge is open to everyone- come join us- Challenge Mom Lisa's blog can be found HERE.

My Linky is below- join the fun!




Thanks for stopping by! Shelly

Beautiful card and beautiful sentiment.

I love the way you used the gate type die cut with the bricks. I'm usually not a real big fan of silk flowers for some reason, but I love the way you do them:)

SO pretty! Love how the brick wall looks behind the sentiment.

I love how you do the trellis on the wall. I hadn't thought about using sentiments this way, but Word Art Wednesdays has a ton of sentiments that would look awesome on a card like this.

Well my dear, you have inspired me to try this technique! What a gorgeous and realistic background! Love how you used the MS punch (think I have that one)for a lattice. Beautiful card! Happy Saturday!

Shelly, Delightful card! Love the trellis and bricks. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. I don't know why I never thought to follow your via e-mail (that's the way I follow most blogs), but I've done it now and will be a more faithful follower from now on! I get really great inspiration from you. :-D
