Garden Party for December 9, 2009

gpDec9photo Its Tuesday - Garden Party Day.  If you remember, this was our Christmas inspiration clipping from last week.

 

 

 

 

And here is my card made from it.

gpDec9card I used the new Basic Grey Wassail paper for the background.  If you like vintage Holiday themes, this paper pack is wonderful!

I used Odd Bird Planet images for the card - Charles left and Charles right along with Cathrine's (that's me!) Pine Bough.  Charles and Pine Bough are also in the Homemade Holiday stamp kit - which is on sale for 25% off right now.

I stamped the images with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored them with Copic markers and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a duster brush.  The speckled paper was from my stash.  It was more absorbent than my regular paper so blending the Copics was a little more challenging.

The fiber and brad are from my stash. 

This will be my last Garden Party for this year - I'll still be around but with the business of the season I'd like to take a short break on the challenges.  We can start them back up next year.

Another wonderful card! I think in the new year I will paste a sticky note on my forehead so I remember to do these wonderful Garden Parties!!!

It's really beautiful. Great choice of images and that paper is lovely. I've resisted it thus far. Hah!

I keep meaning to do your challenges and then don't get to them.

Everything on this posting is wonderful, especially M's art project! M, you did such a wonderful project, and I think it is especially sweet of you to share your Teddy Bear with baby Jesus. Your Mom is surely a great person to be helping you learn all these neat craft ideas.
