Joy for You - Teardrops at Deep Ocean Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!



Best wishes for a wonderful Tuesday, everyone! I hope your week has started in a fantastic way and that the rest of the week will be just as wonderful!

Today is my first submission as part of the Deep Ocean Challenge Blog and I hope you will visit and join in with us this fortnight where the theme is SPARKLES. For my card, I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from the Journey Collection by Authentique, and all panels are machine stitched. The darling image I used is Morehead's Joy for You - Teardrops which I colored with Flexmarkers and Promarkers--loving those Flexmarkers!! I added some Doodlebug Flock to the buttons and Prisma Glitter to the collar and cuffs. Isn't that little puppy the cutest thing?!?! For the horizontal I used a turquoise sparkly ribbon tied into a double flat bow, as well as some WOC Aqua Divine Twine to tie on a little puffed heart charm from the WOC Mixed Heart Charm Collection. The floral treatment is also from Wild Orchid Crafts: Carnations, Sweetheart Blossoms, and Long Stem Stamens resting on a few white ferns from Magnolia. To finish the front I added several Self-Adhesive Rhinestones.



The inside is very simple so that the lovely swirly paper shows--on the first panel I just added a MM LOVE Metal Sign with parts of a Self Adhesive Crystal Swirl and on the jotting panel just more of the same from the front of the card.

I hope you like my little creation and will decide to join in with us at Deep Ocean Challenge Blog so that we can see your SPARKLES!!!!

Lovely card Jacque! I love that blue color, just gorgeous! The sparkles look great and I love the matching inside, as always. This sweet stuff looks wonderful.

Congratulations, Jacque for your 1st Deep Ocean Challenge Entry! I love the colors in this card. Especially with so much brown in the background. This child looks so sad in this image. You did a great job on him! And, yes, that puppy is just precious! I love the florals in the corner, especially with that fabulous striped paper. The heart hung with the striped twine and bow is beautiful!

Jacque, thank you so much for the chance to receive the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals. I have wanted that set for a long time. And, I can't believe you have paired it with birds. I really love using them on cards and in my scrapbooks and journals. You are so generous.

He IS Able!
