Garden Party for October 28

gpoct28photo Hi all, time for another installment of Garden Party.  Here is the inspiration photo posted last week.  This was a hard one for me.

But I'm thrilled to say that Laura played along.  You can see her wonderful card HERE.  I love the menu board! (And check out her cool blog header too.  I like it!  Makes me want some hot chocolate).




gpoct28card My card is not terribly faithful to the photo.  I didn't think this would be so hard when I pulled it out - but for some reason it was.  I tried to take the pattern from the pillow on the chair and use that pattern and those colors.  I also tried to include the angled line from the stairs.  And of course included red from the chairs.

I used the Birthday Circus Cling set from Odd Bird Planet.  It features Belle all dressed up as a clown.  I'm forever late with actually sending cards, so I badgered poor Johanna to create the sentiment.  The set also includes Ellie the elephant - who I adore. 

The paper is Basic Grey Romani, the cardstock is Prism (my favorite) and the upper right corner was made with the scalloped corner punch.  Sorry - my photo is a little "cattywhampus" there.

gpnov11photo Well, next week I'll be sharing projects made with the "Homemade Holiday" kit that will be released Nov. 1. 

I have a bunch of projects (hope you like 'em).  So I'm going to postpone next weeks garden party till Nov. 11. 

So that will give you two weeks to work on the challenge.  Here is the photo.  Hmmmm.....

Cute! I was eyeing up that pillow, too. Basic Grey has a paper to go with everything, don't they?

Love your card, and I thought it was cool, because you followed the angle of the staircase! Love the new photo too!

I LOVE your card. That DP is ultra cute & that sentiment is perfect. I'm always late too. I can't wait to try out that gorgeous challenge. Love the red and black. I have something in mind already! :O)
