Joans Challenge # 25

HI all, I hope you all are having a wonderful summer so far, to me, it seems like it should be half over by now, as it has been so warm lately, and to me it seems like it is time for cooler weather!!
Anyway, I thought as the challenge is fairly easy this week I would have had a few cards done so far, but so far there is not much happening there, got one done and Hope to do at least one more, my mind wants to be on the go constantly but my body is not in agreement!!
So here are the guidelines for this week's challenge over at Joan's Gardens,

And you can check out a sample card made by her One woman design team, Selma, whom is so very talented, her card is HERE!!

Attached is my creation for this weeks challenge, if you have any questions, give a shout out, and THANKS for stopping by. Sorry I used the same stamped image as Selma, but I happened to have that stamp and just LOVE it, so figured why not, and I just love using my bow maker that my dear brother made for me, it looks just like the one that Becca Feekan has designed and sells, and it works wonderfully, and don't get to use it as much as I should, so I decided that today's 4 layered card just needed a nice pretty bow!!! I think that the card I made looks so much better in person than in the picture, the bow looks so dark in the picture, but it is a very nice rich crandberry color, and I also used a Spica glitter pen for the center of the flowers, so it is very sparkly but that does not show in the picture either. All basic suplies, copics, sentiment stamp, stamped image and cardstock, and Again, Thanks for stopping by!!

Big Hugs

    1. Lori,
      Thanks for the comment, and no no layering with the flower, I had thought about it, but did not know if that would be outside the guidelines, so I just highlighted my stamped image with c2 copic, it adds depth to the image, thanks again.

  3. WOW! This is gorgeous Donna! Love the coloring on the flowers and WOW WEE ... check out that beautiful ribbon bow! Awesome job!! Have a fabulous day ... HUGS from OHIO
