Share Joy Challenge #35

Hello, my friends!

Today I have the newest Share Joy Challenge! I used the sketch, and a few TE products to create a Mother's Day card. Let's check it out..

I started with a piece of water color paper, and applied stripes of watercolor in gold, and teal. I trimmed it down, and adhered it to a light gray card base, and a strip of gold card stock to the side.

I die cut a circle, heat embossed a sentiment from the Simply Stamped: Zinnias set in gold, and adhered it to the panel. I die cut a few leaves from vellum using the Mini Leaves die set, and added a few sequins.

Here is a look at the graphic, and the rules are below! I hope you decide to play along with us!

Challenge Format:

Each week we will be bring you two types of challenges that you can use separately or together to inspire your creativity. One of the challenges will always be a sketch.
