I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Garden Gold

The card was made for Tuesday Alchemy Challenge the week.  They have a wonderful challenge this week. come join us. We are celebrating National Garden Month! Please include garden and gold elements in your project. By garden, it can be any type - Think: flower, herb, vegetable, etc. They have a sponsor for this challenge and prizes.  Check out their blog to find out the details. 

I used Day for a Daisy digital stamp for my project called Wild Fall Poppy. I thought the image would look great on a screen shaped card.  I added some gold die cut butterflies and gold dragonfly brads to accent the the card along with an embossed gold sentiment and some bling.

Thank you for stopping by today and remember my favourite quote by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Join us this week at Tuesday Alchemy.
