Joans Challenge 19

Well, it sure has been some time for me, won't bore you all with the details, lets just say I hope I am on the up hill swing of things, this has been a very rough year for me, Health wise !! I have also been busy with spring planting, I so love this time of the year, all the pretty colors and everything so green, well I could do without the pollen part of it, but I do love my flowers, was hoping to get all the planting and out door work done before the Heat and Humidity of the summer got here, but with NJ, that can not always be accomplished as the summer weather sometimes over takes our spring weather and we don't get much of a spring, which did happen again this year. Such is life.
This challenge is over at Joan's Gardens, a superb place to get inspiration and to shop, so many wonderful things to buy. Come check it out HERE.

Anyway, on to the challenge, following are Joan's guideline's for this week,

What do you think of when you think of the month of June? Weddings? I know I certainly do.

4. Link your card/project to the Blue Inlinkz icon listed at the bottom of the challenge.

With that being said, my card was created as I went along, just kind of happened, no plans, just sat down and this is what came up!! You can not tell in the picture but everything is in layers, 3d popped, staggered and cut using my nestabilities and one layer is embossed with the Swiss dots embossing folder, and the two wedding birds (Hero Arts stamp)are also layered. And my sentiment is on the inside. I felt the front of the card was full enough without trying to fit a greeting of some sorts in there. I do this a lot.

Will come back later and list all the products used, husband is waiting patiently for me so we can leave to go to a movie.

Thanks for stopping by, oh and by the way, most of what I used, was purchased at Joan's Gardens, or had in my stash. And the here is the sample card done by the amazing Selma, from Selma's Stamping Corner.

Have a great day,
