Garden Party for November 11

gpnov11photo My!  Its been a long time since the last Garden Party.  Only 2 weeks actually - but so much has happened.  If you remember, this was the inspiration photo from 2 weeks ago.

 

 

 

 

gpnov11card And here is my card based off of it. 

I embossed flowers and leaves from the Damask Floral Clear Set on Prism Dark Papaya cardstock with Copper Embossing powder.  Then I matted it on brown and caramel. 

I added a strip of  patterned paper I had in my stash to the bottom of the brown  card base.   I didn't have anything stripped - so I went with floral.  I punched two 1/8" holes next to each other through the image and the mattes.  Then I fed a sheer ribbon through and knotted it.  I mounted the image panel on the card base and then secured the ribbon ends behind.  The brad is from my stash as well.

 

gpnov18photo Here is the photo for next week.  This one came from Debbie - who was kind enough to send me a whole stack of interesting photos to add to my "Inspiration Shoebox".  Thanks Debbie!!

If you'd like to play along, just leave a comment on this post with a link to your creation and I'll make a big fuss over you in next week's post :)

Holy smokes, that card you created couldn't be any closer to the challenge than that. I've never seen a card that resembles the challenge photo as good as this one! I'm absolutely in LOVE with next week's challenge.

What a gorgeous card! I wanted to play this time SO bad! I even created something, but the light is so poor here outside lately & my halogen work light is only meh so I can't get a decent photo to save my life... sighhhh. :O)
