CCEE Stampers-Scallops, Flowers, and Buttons

Today's challenge at CCEE STAMPERS, given by Cindy Haffner, is to make a card with buttons, scallops, and flowers. I have it covered. My scallops are the Martha Stewart double loop border punch and I'm using a Marianne Design Creatables die called Tags & Buttons. I placed my buttons on Inchie Arts inchies so they wouldn't drown out on my paper.  My flower is a Recollections floral embellishment.  So, that covers the challenge.

My sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company and is called Sending Happy Thoughts.

I'm using a Spellbinders scalloped rectangle nestabilities and the paper is Stampin'Up! Rose Red, PTI white cardstock, and Martha Stewart Feldspar cardstock for the buttons. I don't know the designer paper.

Hope you'll join us this week  at CCEE Stampers.

Flowers at FOSTV

The challenge starting today for Friends of Speedy TV located at Home of Speedy TV is 'flowers'.
I think just about everyone loves flowers and we hope you'll join us this week. Maybe you could be the winner of this stamp set we're giving away for challenge #17. It is Dogwood Blossoms.

I decided to do my card in cream, white, and brown. I made my chevrons with an EK Success zig zag chain punch and placed a sentiment on top made with the smallest Spellbinders circle nestabilitie and the scalloped circle.

I stamped my images from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company Sending Happy Thoughts set and just left uncolored. Sometimes, I just like that look.

I used the sketch challenge SC295 from Splitcoaststampers.
