The Flourishes challenge this week was to combine several stamp sets to make a card (click the title of my post for a link back to the Flourishes website). I was inspired by the beautiful DT card on their site that used the flower sets. I used Flourishes, strawberry, lemons, and peaches stamp sets. I used Copic markers to color the images, PTI cardstock, and Basic Grey paper.

This card was made for a sketch challenge on the new blog "Crazy 4 Challenges". It was a fun sketch this week and I decided to use a HG The Greeting Farm image. I colored it with Copic markers and used K&Co. Dp and Bazzil cardstock. The shells are from a jewlry making kit my daughter gave to me.

Oh how I love The Greeting Farm! Last night there was a big Anaya release. Lots of adorable new stamps. Club Anaya held a contest to honor the first Anaya DT. Our challenge was to "case" a card from each design team member. My cases are in the following order: Jacquie, Janna, Kristine, Rosette, and Traci. For each case there was contest. I won for Kristine's case! I am so excited. Please stop in by clicking my title to the Club Anaya link and check out all of the contest winners cards. Congratulations everyone!

For this week's House Mouse challenge we were asked to pick a challenge from the past year and recreate it. I chose challenge 29 which was a sketch challenge. You can click the title of this post and it will link you to the challenge. I used the "Tumble Wreath" stamp from the House Mouse collection and paired it with DP from American Crafts. I added a ribbon and some red rhinestones.

I used a Sprouts image from The Greeting Farm for the Farm Fresh Friday challenge. The challenge was a sketch challenge. I love this stamp. She is so cute and fun to color with Copics! I chose the setiment "know yourself" as a reminder to me. I love color and patterns and texture. Sometimes, I am over the top. But, the joy I get from making an image come to life using my Copics and highlighting the image with bright paper and embellishments is immense. So, I guess that I am not understated or shabby chic. I may just be a little garish and flashy. Hey well that's me! I admire those who do understated cards. I have tried but, the color always has a way to sneak back in. So for this card I "knew myself" and went for it. Hope you like it! (If you click on the title it will take you to The Greeting Farm Blog and you can see the sketch for this week:)
