OCC....Oh the Flowers



Happy Saturday Peeps!!

It is time for another challenge over on the Our Creative Corner Blog. This week our challenge hostess is Kristin Tierney from LillyBeth Designs.

Her challenge for us is: Oh the Flowers! - Scandinavian countries are known for their flowers and their beauty is inspiring! Using these photos as inspiration, create a project NOT using flowers of any kind!

She provided this picture of some beautiful flowers for some inspiration:



I t was hard, looking at all those pretty flowers and then to NOT use flowers on my card!

I chose to use some pretty pinks on my card and I decide to make a cute little pinwheel for the front. This pin wheel die is NOT an Stampin Up die. I used the Speciality Designer Paper from SU called "Flirtatious".

I used white for my base and then followed that with some melon mambo card stock and then some of the pretty DSP. I used the Tasteful Trim die for my scallops across the bottom and also some white satin ribbon.



The top panel that the pinwheel is on is made up for melon mambo and white. I embossed the white with the Houndstooth Embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Hostess stamp set called Happiest Birthday Wishes.
Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun  challenge. I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
