Yesterday was a definitely a Monday! Work was busy and I had to go back after I left to set up one of the forums. So I left work, stopped by my parents, came home and let the dog out, Pinterested, went and set up for the forum and stopped at BJ’s on the way home. All of that was after 5 o’clock! What a day! I did manage to squeeze a card in last night because Wednesday, I’ll be at work from 8 AM until 10 PM. You’ve heard of the best week ever? This is definitely not it! LOL! I hope your Monday was much better than mine. Okay, enough whining. I did get a little present last night from Andrew…

Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for their “Featuring Flowers” challenge…
I sat and looked at all of the flower stamp sets that I have (there are quite a few of them) and I settled on one that I haven’t used in a while. My card base is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and my background consists of a piece of Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper on the left and a simple of Panel of Whisper White on the right. The white panel in the center has the greeting from the Lots of Thanks Stamp Set, stamped in Smoky Slate and my “stitching” is done with a Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker. The white background panel and the center panel are both adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flower and leaves are from the Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set, the flower is stamped in Crushed Curry and Smoky Slate, the leaves in Pear Pizzazz and Smoky Slate. They are cut out with my Paper Snips and also adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A relatively simple card but I think it has lots of impact. I also really like the subtle shadowing effect on the flower and the leaves with the Smoky Slate. I hope you enjoyed my card for the SUO Challenges “Featuring Flowers” challenge. Take some time to stop by the blog and see what the other designers have come up with and make a flowery card of your own for us to see! As always, your visit is greatly appreciated. I hope your Tuesday is terrific! 🙂
