Joan's Garden Challenge 10/18/12

Good Monday and today I have a card for Joan's Garden Challenge. This week we are to create a card showing a winter pastime, use black embossing powder, use a frame and make something dimensional. Let me be clear (where have I heard that before?)  I understand a winter pastime is probably supposed to be something outdoors. So, that's why I stuck my Lab doggie in there as I do go out and walk them in the winter. Just not now, as I recently had foot surgery and I am doing much better and everything seems to be healing nicely. I go back to the doctor this week but will still have to wear my funny shoes for another month-I think...I also put some books in there as a pastime as I have been reading lots because of the surgery. Winter is a good time to read. The card:

The checked background, the winter barn scene and the greenery around the top right are all from Impression Obsession. The books are from Sunday International. The dog is from Bizzaro and Enjoy the Moment is from PSX. The frame is from Sizzex. The two bows hidden behind the top corners are from Memory Box and the Tag is from Spellbinders.

Hi Paula ! Excellent card ! Such great stamps ! The greenery really adds to the scene :-) It's also a great addition to have those white embellishments at the top corners. What a fun idea ! I look forward to seeing your cards :-) Ann
