Flowers Galore

This week's challenge at Michelle Perkett's Inspiration and Design Challenge blog is to make a project with lots of flowers. I really stepped outside my comfort zone this time. What fun this challenge turned out to be. The dard base is white cardstock and the paper is DCWV. I purchased the silk flowers from Joann's and used my scallop punches to make the large flowers out of DCWV designer paper. The tutorial for the scallop punch flowers may be found at Lord Have Mercy blog. Now, why not hop on over to Michelle's Challenge blog and join in on the fun? Thanks for stopping by today!

Mother's Day Challenge

Today the challenge at Michelle Perketts Inspiration and Design blog is to make a Mother's Day card. I chose to make an easel card using Michelle's "Thank You" Image. The designer paper is by K & Company and the lime green cardstock is from Hollo's Papercraft Store. The flower buttons were purchase last weekend at the Adventures in Stamping convention in Akron, Ohio. Pearls were used for the flower centers and image was colored with prisma colored pencils and thinner. Pink Satin ribbon was used to make the bow and as a backdrop for the buttons. Why not hop on over to Michelle's Challenge Blog and join in the fun?

Thanks for visiting with me today.
