Hello Crafters,

   Challenge at Joans Garden - This week was kind of tough for me.  Every time I would write down TULIPS - there was always a letter missing. HA - Well this is what I finally decided on and hope you like it!

T - Tim Holtz distress markers -lame at best - Trim (will explain this when you see card) again lame

U - The letter U

L - Leaves, Lattice, Lots

I - Insects, Items from Joans Garden

P - Paper, Purple

S - Sentiment

OK - hear goes:

Sorry I didn't notice the shadow across the bottom but there are a couple other close ups.

My card base is a 6x6 cut from the Heartfelt Creations "Posy Patch Collection" so both the front and back have a beautiful scene of posy's.  The sentiment is from the same collection and seemed to be missing a word that  I wanted on this card so that is why the "U"...."A memory that lasts forever "U"! Hope that makes since.
 U is chip board covered with same paper and a small bow attached.  Across the bottom I have popped up the posy's to make the trim on this card. The leaves on this card are painted with the new Viva paint.
Well that's the jest of this card. Below are the products used:
