Share Joy

What a great name for a challenge!  Share Joy is a new challenge sponsored by Taylored Expressions, and part of the challenge is to send or give your card away.  Their first challenge uses colors that are so pleasing - so glad I was able to enter this first one!  And it's so kind of them to not require using their own products, as I only own an embossing folder from them right now.

supplies: white, pool, and grass cardstock, MME plank dp, Altenew Vintage Flowers and leaves from Painted Flowers, inks in colors of challenge, Winnie & Walter Big, Bold Friends cutaway, aqua and yellow pearls

I've been wanting to use this branch and smaller flowers from the Vintage Flowers set, and was pleased to try them out for the first time.  I used all 3 layers on each flower, but only 1 ink this time, so the details are much more subtle than if I'd used 3 shades of ink.  I added leaves from Painted Flowers colored with a marker, then fussy-cut out my arrangement and placed it over the planking.

Here's our inspiration.  I used the colors only:


  1. Wow, this is stunning, Lin, you used the colours beautifully.

    Love and hugs

  2. Your design is GORGEOUS and DREAMY!! Love this to bits! Thanks for spreading the words about this new challenge....looks like a ton of fun!

  3. Oh what an enticing design!! The flower branch is really pretty, and I imagine the wood grain panel being a door way to a tranquil garden!! :)

  4. Very pretty Lin, I like those delicate little flowers!

  5. Love your beautiful card.

  6. Very pretty Lin - love the soft colours and that gorgeous die cut, and the subtleties of the multiple stamping.

  7. Oh, Lin, what a gorgeous card, and I love how you've fussy cut this beautiful flowering branch and placed it over the planking! Stunning, and how wonderful you've entered it for the Taylored Expressions challenge. I'll have to check that one out. Great challenge card, my friend! Hugs!

  8. Beautiful, I love the pearl centers!

  9. Soooo pretty and fresh! That little sprig creates such lovely design lines! Adorable and thanks for the heads up on the new challenge!
