Hi all!

I've got two cards to share with you today.
Both are the result of a recent assignment from GCD Studios. More on that to come. First, meet the cards.

Meet Card #1.



Here's some close up photo action of this one.



And meet Card #2.



And here's a bit of close up photo action for this one.



Like I said before, these two cards are the result of a challenge presented by GCD Studios. Heidi challenged the DT girls this month to create some projects inspired by all the colors and flowers in these pictures.



Pretty, huh?

Needless to say, I was really drawn in by the pink and green combination. I love those colors together so both my cards feature those colors. Since the pictures are of flowers, I went with flowers on my cards, too. Why drift away from something so pretty?

You'll notice that just for fun, I added a lavender gem to the Hi card. Just 'cause. ;)

All the patterned papers and brads on these cards are from Melody Ross' Homespun Chic collection from GCD Studios. The chipboard leaf on the Hello card is from the Artsy Urban collection. The gems and letter stickers are from my stash.

Check out the GCD Studios blog throughout the month, and you can see how the rest of the team tackled this challenge.

That is all for me for now.
Thanks for stopping by!
Teri Anderson

  29. I’m a new fan of GCD Studio, particularly the Melody Rose Collection, especially the Homespun Chic and tools. Hard to find from where I am. I ordered from Laine’s Papeterie Singapore, but they ran out so fast and couldn’t replenish my stock. Your blog is a daily visit...sheer awesomeness!
