Linkup Party #5 + a giveaway

Hi Everyone,
It's been a tad chilly here in NEPA. Last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday it was near or over 90 degrees. Today (Sunday) its just about 55 degrees. I love fall, but I don't want to see all the pretty summer flowers go. Can you guess what the theme is for this week? Florals :)

Make something with a floral image; a card, a scrapbook page, a tag. That gives me an idea: I'm adding tags to my challenge idea list.

Here is my project for this week. (YAHOO! I have a project.)
My mother-in-law's birthday is today, and she loves flowers. Happy Birthday Audrey!

The flower I used is from a 2-step stamp set by AlteNew. I tried out a few different colors to stamp my floral image, but ended up loving Harvest Gold and Lemon Tart from Paper Trey Ink. I also used PTI's New Leaf and Prairie Grass for the leaves. I used a 3D textured embossing folder to create the woodgrain background and then wiped it with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. The color was a little too strong so I sprayed the background with water and dabbed off some of the ink to fade the color. The sentiment is from a Concord & 9th stamp set that has some great floral images as well. I have the supplies I used to make this card listed below.

If you are new to the Linkup Party you can find all the details HERE.
We're going to start doing some small giveaways to those selected as the featured project during the Sunday Roundup posts. This week's selection will receive this adorable square mandala stencil by Gina K Designs.

Let's see your projects for this week...

  1. Love your card, Christina. So elegant. I didn't want to be greedy and post a third - a card I used Gina K's wreath builder on. This is fun - and so good to "see you."
