Picture It Perfect Blog Hop - Jan 28th

Welcome to the "Picture it perfect 'Blog hop. If you arrived here from Angie's Blog  then you are headed in the right direction. However if you just happened along my post and would like to start at the top then you will have to head on over to   our Hostess Gill's  Blog to start at the beginning.
 Our challenge was to create a card using a photograph or a picture from a magazine or any other picture we wanted.Sounded easy enough! Right. Well I found it way more difficult to do. after deciding on my picture it took me "forever" to put my project together. This is the picture I chose for my card

I don't recall where I got this picture from but I just love the colors and the refection in the water, and here is the card I created!

The base is craft card stock 5.5 x4.25 the pattern paper is from my scraps pile I cut  a scalloped oval with a large Sizzix  Framelits Die
the ribbon is from Joann's the maple leaves were punched with a leaf punch from Creative memories and distressed a bit to give them a little dimension.The sentiment was stamped with tuxedo Black ink with an stamp from one of My Creative Time stamp sets.Glue dotted a couple little green buttons and drew a line one the card stock with a red gel pen around the
 patterned paper.
Your next stop is Michelle  's  blog so head on over to see what she has in store for you today.
Here is a list of all the participants just in case you  get lost along the way!
