At Joan's Gardens Challenge #12

The challenge At Joan's Gardens this week is to create a card using oranges, yellows and greens,  create a container and fill it with flowers....and to use products that are available at Joan's Gardens.  
This diamond Origami Fold card was inspired by Patricia St. Martin (Wisconsin).  The fold makes a pocket for the card top-flap, and opens into a three dimensional card.  The dies I used are Spellbinders Lacy Square (S4-295) I used a McGill punch for some of the flowers, (Perfect Petals Petite) and others were dyed with Tim Holtz  Distress Markers and water (they came from The adorable graphic is from Dearie Dollies. (Mary Ellen Dearie Designs.)
I painted the graphic in Photoshop, finished it with Tim Holtz markers, and then paper pieced a second basket over the graphic to form the container on the front of the Dollie's bike. The paper I used was the Tim Holtz Specialty Paper through the inkjet printer! (Then I sprayed it with hairspray before I tried to put any watercolor ink on it!).   
The "Hug" medallion is from Paulette of TLC Creations colored to match the project, and punched with a Paper Shapers 1 3/4 inch scallop punch.  The gold rings are part of Starform stickers (white/gold) #841. The paper is from Spring Morning Colorbok paper pack.  Most of the products (dies, punches, the glues, stickers, etc) not the graphics and decorative papers I used this time,  can be ordered from At Joan's Gardens
