Flowers and a Sketch for 2 Challenges

Today's card combines 2 challenges.....

The first is from The Paper Players and Nance wants us to use a floral image on our card. That was hard for me, as I totally have winter on my mind and there is snow everywhere. I also discovered that I own more snowman stamps than flower ones, ROFL. I guess I love flowers in my yard but in my stamp collection, not so much! I ended up using an image from the "Easter Blossoms" set. I don't celebrate Easter so this flower image(and the little girl silhouette) were the only reason I bought the set.

Looking at my front yard this afternoon:

The second challenge is a sketch challenge from Scrapbook Essentials BC and it's from Lesley. Very nice and easy sketch, and although I am usually not too fond of circles I went ahead and used that shape. For some reasons circles just  frustrate me, LOL.

Make sure you head over to both sites to play along with their great challenges!
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Easter Blossoms
Paper: Crumb Cake, Rose Red, Always Artichoke, Watercolor Paper, Springtime Vintage
Ink: Rose Red, Crumb Cake, Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink
Accessories: Nestabilities, CB Swiss Dots folder, small oval punch, Dazzling Details, sponge, dimensionals

  5. Wow, Lisa! Look at all of that snow! We never see that down here in Texas, so I'm a little jealous seeing your photo. Your card is so pretty! Love how you paired that image with the DSP. I love that paper so much. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)

  6. Gorgeous. Your use of the watercolor paper really adds wonderful texture to the card, too. So very pretty. So glad you shared your lovely creation with the Paper Players this week, Lisa
