I was going through my older stamps the other day and came across this SU set from 2005 called Garden Collage. I always liked the images and decided to use the bird one on a card for a friend who recently had surgery. Inside, the verse from the same set reads "Gently thinking of you".
While I had planned to do a "joy fold", I wondered where to go from there. The challenge this week on Crafty Creations is a recipe for 3 patterned papers, 2 ribbons, and 1 charm. So I incorporated the recipe into the joy fold card. I used tone-on-tone turquoise printed paper as an alternate colour because there is a bit of the same shade in the floral paper on the right side. Although the pattern is faint to see in my pic, it is sorted of an allover stitched type. I also used three embossing folders -Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots", Crafts Too "Daisies" and "Flower Swirls" (I think that is the name - the folder case is missing! Ooops!)
As it turned out, there is another blog challenge for the "recipe 3,2,1", so I'm entering my card in that as well.
-The image is coloured with Derwent water colour pencils
-The three patterned papers were scraps I had on hand
-The two ribbons are by SU - one is wrapped around a layer; the other I gathered into a ribbon flower centered with a prima and pearl
-The charm is a silver heart (or one item)
