Joan’s Gardens Weekly Challenge #24

Hi there ladies,

Well, well…, Joan has given us quite a challenge this week don’t you think!  She has asked that we try our hand at our version of replicating Selma’s fabulous card.  I say “try” with the utmost admiration : )  This is not an easy feat but I thought I would give it a go anyway.  The challenge this week based on this card:


  • Create a card very similar to Selma’s Card
  • Use an embossed background
  • Use a lace border
  • Use Selma’s tutorial to create flowers
  • Use Pink and White

Here is my version of Selma’s card:

To everyone who is lucky enough to spend time with Joan and Selma later this week, I hope you have a wonderful day!

Thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog.  I hope you check out my blog candy giveaway and also pop back and visit again soon,
