So, welcome to The Mixed Media Card Challenge, which is Sunshine with an option of Bricks.

I started off by smooshing Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn onto a piece of card.  Once that was dry I sponged a sun using Dylusions Lemon Zest paint.  Added some torn washi tape for flower stalks, then ran the brick embossing folder over the panel.  I added some green Gelato at the base, then attached some Prima flowers with brads (got to get rid of the huge stash somehow!), then adhered the panel to my base card.  I wrote the 'hello' with a white Posca pen on black card then trimmed it and popped it up with a couple of foam squares.

Pop on over to the blog to see some fabulous inspiration from my teamies.  How will the challenge inspire you?  Link your creation up here.


  1. What a happy card, Shirley! Love the textured brick background and all your sweet little flowers!

  2. So pretty, Shirley. :) I love that you wrote your own sentiment! And the flowers are bright and fun too.

  3. What a great little garden you created with your white brick embossed wall - and how creative to use washi tape for the flower stems - great way to get a little more texture! Julia xx

  4. This is just so stinkin' cute! Just had to scroll back up to see before writing - what, no splatters?!?! I absolutely love how you created your stems too.

  5. ah, really cool take on this months theme!!! very cute card!
