Garden Party for November 25

gpnov18photo Hello!

Its Tuesday - time for this week's Garden Party Challenge where a magazine clipping is used for the basis of a card.   Here is the picture posted two weeks ago (opps....).

(OK.... lets pretend its still Tuesday, its almost still Tuesday...)




gpnov18card Here is my card attempt.  I'm kind of "meh" about it but I ran out of time to try again.

I used the flower from the Victorian Rose Single cling stamp and the leaves from the Damask Floral Clear Set.  I embossed the pieces in gold and painted the images with Pearlescent Paint and cut them out.  I could not get the flowers to photo very well.  They look nicer in real life.   The background is the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder and the corner is made with the Fancy Corner Punch. 

gpnov18card2 The papers are from my stash - including the gold which is very thick and nice (now where did I get it???).




gpdec2photo I have to confess that I cheated on next week's photo.  I've been tearing out Holiday photos - and pulled this from that pile instead of the regular inspiration shoe box.  But I'm trying to get more into the Christmas mood...

I'm just not ready yet.... time is going too fast for me!

I liked the blue and lime green that they added to the traditional red here.

Ok, finally, I made a card for the challenge. Here it is: http://1of2shoes.blogspot.com/2008/11/garden-party-challenge-card.html

I was in the mood to make a Christmas card so I was glad to see this challenge.

This is gorgeous. I also like this week's challenge. Maybe I'll actually do one finally. Ha. Don't hold your breath.
