A Vine and Arch


It is all about Purple in the newest Squigglefly challenge. It is our team's week off, but as usual I could not resist playing. I used a newer image by Pamela Lehto called Trumpet Vine Arch. I have had this image a few weeks, but had to think about how to use it best. I loved how Linda used it HERE, but I didn't want to copy here pretty card. I finally decided it would be great frame for some scripture or encouraging words, and I really like how it came out (my sentiment is from SU!). When I finished my panel, I decided to add some of my new Impression Obsession dies to mimic the image (fence and leaves).

Hope you can find some time to join the challenge too. Remember if you don't have a Squigglefly image, they have thousands of images from a large number of great artists and they have a large free section as well.

Hope you are having a wonderful Monday! Hugz!

  5. You've got my attention with this beauty. Now that is awesome. I am totally taken with how you did the flowers on the side as embellishment and how wonderfully it matches the image. The fence and flower add another layer of beauty. This is fantastic. I love it!

  15. Hi Nancy, purple has always been a hard color for me, but you sure pulled it off beautifully with this lovely image and coloring. Embossed papers are pretty as well. Just gorgeous.

  18. Nancy, what a lovely card - I have pinned it - so peaceful and delicate - Thanks for mentioning the IO dies. After visiting their blog, I found the Leafy Branch and wondered if that was what you used by cutting it apart? While the image is gorgeous, and beautifully colored, it is all the elements you've used which make it a masterpiece. Thank you for becoming my newest follower, and I have become yours as well, Nancy. Your style is so pretty, and I feel very inspired visiting your blog. hugs, de
