I made my card for the new challenge over at the DRS Designs blog that began yesterday..."Flowers". I know, it's an easy challenge if you ask me. And now I will also let you know something else....DRS Designs is the sponsor this week at the 365 Cards blog, and the challenge over there is "Nature". So, why not join me, make a card and enter both challenges for a chance at a prize :)
After seeing a couple of my design team mates use this pretty Dogwood Branch in their backgrounds, I thought I would give it a try. Funny how I just thought of it as a main image stamp, but I love the results. It's just colored with Copics and added a bit of Stickles in their centers. I decided to pad my B-day card stash, so Birthday Wishes was stamped on the bottom.
I made a rolled flower (only my second or third one ever), and added a gem to the center. I think I don't make them very often, because now I have to hand deliver the card.
Well, I had a house full of guests for Father's day, I was out shopping for a new fire pit this week, and I'm desperately trying to finish my scrapbook from my trip to Italy. If I don't finish soon, nobody will even care anymore about the photos...lol. And the heat has chased my card makin'/blogging mojo to God knows where. I hope it comes back soon!
Thanks for dropping by and hope to see you at the challenges!
