I am all about the challenges lately! I checked my e-mail tonight and noticed this challenge loved the color combo! I remembered that I had this scrap of patterned "Friendship" paper in my stash, and some chocolate and pumpkin felt flowers in my flower drawer, so all I did was plunder in my brown ribbon drawer (y'all KNOW I'm the QUEEN of brown ribbon) and BAM! I could not get a great photo of the card...out of 15 photos, this was the best one. I added the pink flower at the end as I really prefer a grouping of 3 flowers when I cluster them. After I finished the card, I went back to the challenge to download the challenge photo and realized that it was a similar layout of Shauna's, but I really liked this card and hardly ever do what I call "long-card designs", so I decided to post it. Of course the card is SU's Pumpkin Pie (LOVE THIS COLOR), I believe the patterned paper if from Die Cuts With a View (it's 2 or 3 years old now and is the last of the 12X12 sheet), the felt flowers are from American Crafts (a HUGE Big Lots find of a whole $2 for a container FULL!), the pink daisy flower is from Making Memories, the bling is from Michaels, and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. Thanks for looking! I'm off to eat a piece of carrot cake and watch Dancing With the Stars...my guilty pleasure!

Here is my latest challenge entry. I hopped around each blog in the challenge and found some cute stuff, but when I saw the color combo, I decided to use the butterfly stamp I just bought. I purchased the egg stamp from A Muse Artstamps awhile ago, and found the butterfly and Easter sentiment in the $1 bin at Michaels! I have yet again found a use for my Martha Stewart grass punch...I think I'll use it all year long as it is so versatile! Thanks for looking!
