Special Days


My card is made for two challenges. One is Inspired by Stamping-IBSIC #51 and for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. The Queen is Val aka Greywolf. I chose this card to case.

Inspired by Stamping is a color challenge using white, orange, and green.



My cardstock is Stampin'Up! Old Olive and  PTI white. The orange is my flower colored with Copics. The gorgeous flower is from Inspired by Stamping/Elegant Flowers and the sentiment from the same company is from the set, Flowers Bloom.

I sponged around the flower, added a QuicKutz flourish and some pearls. My dies are Spellbinders Stately Circles and the ribbon is SU Old Olive

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. Unfortunately, this weekend is not in the 70's as last weekend was where I live and I'm very sorry about that.

Gorgeous card, Brenda! I love the layered diecut circles and the beautiful flower! It's raining now and cold, so not a nice start to the weekend! Have a good one, regardless!

This is oh so beautiful, Benzi! I love how you layered those lacy diecuts, and your coloring is beautiful. I hope you have a fantastic weekend even if it's not in the 70s ;-)

Beautiful card, Benzi. The coloring you did on the flower is gorgeous and it just pops off that card with the lovely light green backing it up. The flourish and pearls as well as the ribbon and die piece all add their own special touch to this card. Well were are in the same boat weather wise. It is only 38 today and is not suppose to get much better for the next few days and maybe more snow on Tuesday. I would like to see some pretty flowers in person instead of just on cards.

A gorgeous flower and I love these circles! Every time I buy a new set of dies, I see another (or two) that I would like. Never ends! Val will love this!
