Stampin' B's Design Team, Faith, asked us to use two different dies and piercing on our card. Well, I ended up with three dies but because there are no rules on our challenge, I'm A-OK. The piercing was done with the die still in the nestabilitie making it really easy. This is for challenge #117. We hope you'll play along. If so, just use the inlinkz tool to upload your card.
I'm using a Flourishes image called A Year in Flowers-calendar set 3- for my image. I chose Cyclamen and did a bit of masking and stamped the image twice. I really love it. I colored with Copics and gave the white area some sponging with Memento Dandelion ink. The sentiment is also from a Flourishes set called Seeds of Friendship. I am entering my card into the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday blog challenge #124. Tammy Hershberger gave us this wonderful sketch this week. Oops! I guess I didn't exactly do the circle as shown on the right side.
Over at Mark's Finest Papers, Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge is given by my good friend, Carol Hurlock. She asked that we use a lot of sparkle and bling. I have added the green rhinestones and some sparkle (which may or may not show up very much in my photo) from my Gelly Roll pen, along with a flower button.
For Your Inspiration #8 has a lovely scene for getting you inspired: I loved the earthy tones of the cliffs along with the green bushes and vines.
Also, my card will be entered into the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club challenge. Their monthly them is 'Text Me'. I computer generated my text which was found at Wikipedia.
