Joan's Garden Challenge # 1 for 2011

Hello blogging friends!!!

Today I wanted to share with you my first
 Joans' Challenge card for 2011

The stamp I used, is from Loralie Designs isn't she a cutie!
I paper pieced her, which is out of my comfort zone for sure.
And was that time consuming but worth it IMO.
The paper is from October Afternoon, "Thift Shop".
CS & DP is all Stampin Up, MS punch, & pearls
 are from Michaels. For the die I used my
 new Grand Nesties, awesome product.
The ticket is from Tim Holtz, Adage Tickets set.
I colored it all with my copic markers.
It fits all the requirements which are as follows:

1. Use some kind of animal, bird or whatever
2. Use a floral background paper
 3. Do something that takes you out of your comfort zone
4. Use some kind of Die

Well that is it for today, I hope you go
to Joan's and check it out !!
