So I finally got up the nerve or punctuality to submit an entry to Stampin Up!'s monthly challenges. The theme for my entry was Mother's (or Fathers) Day. I am writing this post in January, and the contest ends in February, so I will have to do an update. At this point I have no idea if I have a chance or not, but it is my goal to win at least once this year, and to do that, I will have to start submitting every month.
This card is not one I would ever want to make in bulk, but I love the results. I stamped the flower in this set on watercolor paper, water colored it all in, and then cut all the little flowers out. Then I added crystal effects to the little flowers to add some sparkle and dimension to each one. I am really loving tearing paper, so that was another fun way to perk up the color palette of Rose Red, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz, and Blushing Bride. those colors are part of the color palette for the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper which I love!
