Happy Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone!     I am back with a card I created for my DT Totally Gorjuss Challenge.    Our chalenge for this week is to use die and/or punches!   Our wonderful sponsor is Hether's hobby Haven.    Check it out!      The challenge just started so  you have a week to get something going!   LOL   

I used an image that I got as a gift from my Cardmaking magazine subscription called The country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.    I just love these flowers and thought it would be a great opportunity to try it out with my new background technique.  

Copic alcohol ink makers
Watercolor background
Punch flowers.
Embossing with sponging around edges.   

This is a variation of the Gardenia Strip die.  
I ony used two of the petals to create a smaller flower that would fit with my card.    

This is the finished card.  
I hope you ike the background!   I am always trying to come up iwth something new!   

I am linking this card with the following wonderful challenges: 
  • Totally Gorjuss - Die and/or Punches
  • Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  • Through The Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
