Happy Sunday and Joan's Challenge!!``````````

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend, started out all rainy and crummy, but it is gorgeous today, even though I am indoors and not out, It got a bit warm out for me, was nice this am, all except my darn allergies, this being congested, it for the birds!! But I hate having to take allergy medications.

 Oh well, onto the challenge, I am impressed, I did not wait until the end of the week to get my challenge card done, who knows maybe I will do a 2nd one!!
Anyway, my card will follow for Joan's Challenge, if you would like to see the guidelines, go HERE, and the Sample card this week can be seen on Joan's web site as well. Everything I used can be purchased at Joan's Gardens, awesome place and service!!

Any questions on what I used or did, just give me  a shout and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thanks again,



  1. Oh my goodness Donna this is gorgeous. And yes I would love to know how you did the bavckground. And, I bet everyone else will too. Love the inside too. Great job!!

    Thanks for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our weekly challenge.

    1. Thanks Joan,
      I used the Crafts Concepts embossing folder, which is no longer being made, but I was the hunt for it, for the longest time, and a friend I made on line here in Australia, was able to get one for me, and I just used it for this card for the first time. I used the Victorian Velvet distress ink pad and rubbed it all over the one side of the embossing folder, so the indents are gets inked, comes out very nice. I love this folder I am sure you will see more of it. I always try to do the inside of my cards, but don't always show it.
      Thanks for stopping by I actually got another card done, but will post it in the morning, too tired right now.

    2. Craft concepts embossing folder Sun Rays, forgot that.
