Background challenge

Hi, today I am sharing an ATC.  The background is sent from Janet R., my Hero Arts Flickr groups ATC exchange partner.  We've sent ATC with just the background for each other to finish.  So here is a photo of the background:

I love the grid layout and the soft blue pattern Janet did.  And I don't want to mask or overstamp it too much, so I used some die cut leaves (Memory Box Eva Stem die), the Hero Arts Sparkle Clear Hello set (bird and sentiment), and Hero Arts Small Blossom Gemstones to complete it.  Take a look:

Thanks Janet for the fun challenge!!

HA Flickr group ATC swap June 2014

Hi all, welcome back.

I hope you're enjoying the summer, whether you're at work, on vacation or just "staycationing" at home!  :)

Today I'd to share the ATCs I sent to Janet R, her blog (Swanlady Impressions), for the Hero Arts Flickr group ATC exchange.  And you could her the ATCs she sent me on her blog here, and you could see her Flickr photo stream here.

We each choose two themes, Janet chose Large Lotus Blossom stencil and Butterflies; and I chose Envelope Pattern Background and Flowers.  We'd also sent an ATC with just the background done for each other to finish.

Here's the ATCs I send Janet.

Love Word Die

Hi all,

I am rushing to link up this project before taking my mom to her gallstone removal surgery tomorrow (July 8).  Edited (July 11) to say that her surgery went well and she is on the mend.

I am linking up to the following challenges:

Virginia's View Challenge - Die Cut

I was really inspired by Jennifer McGuire, guest designer of Virginia's View Challenge #5, to use my word die for my project.  Go check her post and video here.

And the current SSS Wednesday Challenge -Shake It.

Also MFW's Wonderful Word Challenge - Word Die.

Produects used:

Paper Smooches Wise Die (Love Word)
