Thank You....for challenges




Good Monday Morning Peeps!


Today's card share is one I made with a few challenges in mind. I love sketch challenges and I used the Fall to Layout 105 on the Clean & Simple Blog for this card.

I also used the Curtain Call Color Challenge for the colors.

And I am also including the Anything Goes Challenge on the Paper Players Blog


My card is started with a base of crumb cake card stock and I followed that with a piece of Concord Crush, BTW I LOVE that color, and then I followed that up with my whisper white. I stamped the flower stem from the "For All You Do" stamp set with Pear Pizzazz ink. I then stamped on a scrap piece of white the flowers in concord and pear and cut them out and mounted them to the white with some foam tape. I wish I could pick my flower up and move it to the right just a bit because it seems just slightly off center, but I really didn't want to re-do so I shouldn't have even mentioned it but didn't want those of you who noticed this to think I was un-aware...LOL!!!

I stamped the butterfly with pear pizzazz ink and cut out and added to the card with some more foam tape. I stamped the sentiment with concord crush ink onto the pear pizzazz card stock and punched it out with my word window punch. I added some silver pearls to the butterfly center, the flower centers and the sentiment. I used some more concord crush and a MS edge punch for the side piece and finished it off with some white satin ribbon.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
