Flowers in Bloom

Hello! One of my SCS buddies (Hi Stacy!) challenged me to do the color challenge for today over on SCS and I couldn't use leaves! The colors were Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, and More Mustard. TUFF!! I had to use some neutrals to help me out! I used the newly released Flowers in Bloom set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, LOVE this set!!  My pic isn't the greatest cause I was losing the sunlight. The sponging and ribbon look soooo mush better in real life. I usually have lots of help when taking my pics thought I'd share a few extra pics from today! Aren't they adorable???!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Poppies

Hello! It's time for day 3 of the Paper and Such sneak peeks and I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this set!!! It's a must have in my book. I stamped my image on the brick embossed white cardstock (I don't have this embossing folder yet myself or I would have stamped first then embossed) and colored it with my copics. I colored 2 extra poppies and cut them out and popped them up. I weaved my ribbon thru the fench punch and added a bow. I LOVE how this card turned out!!! Make sure you stop by the other DT's blogs. Don't forget to leave comments along the way because there will be a winner picked each day from a random blog for that days set. Winners will be announced on the 10th.
