Sweet Flower Power

Good Morning and thanks for dropping by! Just getting ready to head to work but wanted to post this card and play along with two challenges this week.
First challenge is a sketch challenge Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #68 (I've turned the sketch for may take on it)

(Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing)

The 2nd challenge is from Bugaboo Stamps Blog "Catch the Bug Challenge" and this week is Flower Power! I have lots of flowers on mine to qualify!!I've seen so many of the digistamp images from Bugaboo but this is the first time I've actually made it over to the store to check it out!! What fun stuff there.... I'll be back visiting and shopping there for sure!

This is my first time playing along with both of these challenges!!

I just love the papers in this card, so feminine, so girly, so pretty, so sold out at the lss!! I'm bummed but glad I bought a few extra sheets (hee-hee!) cause I want to use it in one of my granddaughter's scrapbooks! The paper is from "The Girls' Paperie" by Margie be sure and check out the gallery there!! Lots of beautiful creations. This paper is called Green Brocade and it's doublesided so that explains why there is no "brocade"! But I just loved the delicate and petite flowers on the opposite side. The colored cardstock is Bazzill. The flower is a stamp from Hero Arts on Neenah cardstock; colored with Copics markers (YG07, YG13, Y38, R20, R32, W1), the sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co. I've used Palette black ink to stamp the images and sentiment. My buttons are from Making Memories and the ribbon is Offray. I used my sewing machine to stitch and also to pierce just a little!


Well that's it for now! Thanks for looking and have a fantastic Thursday! The weekend is almost here!!
