I have been trying to "wean" myself from all the challenges.....and just doing my "own thing".......I find I have been getting so caught up in them, that the things I want to try out get put on " the back burner" so to speak.

I made this card for Laura's 2sketches4you challenge...nothing like last minute... it ends tonight!!! I know its hard to tell, but the flower centers are a "coppery" glitter...the little flowers are punched and are very much "popped" out!
I used my beautiful little dogwood tree as my inspiration......have a nice evening...sorry...have to "run" supper is done!!

HERE ........ I have been messing around with my camera to try and get better quality pictures...what do you think??
HERE ...I flipped it around, used lots of texture......love how it turned out.....the "pink" paper at the edge with the various pink shades has a "mottled" effect of pink all over it .....kind of looks like ink on it, but its just the paper....its the same paper I used on my frog bellies card on a previous post...nothing like using up my scraps!!! I bought the new Papercrafts Go To Sketch magazine...its full of wonderful sketches...perfect for when you have a busy day like most of us do and you want to create....and the sketch is all thought out for you!!!

I finally got to stamp......was gone during Easter...and then the storms set in, so had my comp. shut down....I can hear thunder in the distance now.......I am doing a challenge from "The Shabby Tea Room" to "embrace white with a "pop" or "hint" of color! I love white cards, so elegant and classy....I just received a BIG~FAT order from SU on Monday (too bad it all wasn't mine), but I ordered (finally) the flower impressions folder from the now retired Holiday Mini...oh my.....it's so beautiful, why oh why did I wait this long???
I used a butterfly stamp I picked up early January`notice the fairy that makes the center and each fairy on the wings....I love it...I stamped her in Elegant Eggplant twice and cut her out twice for a 3D look....the butterfly is really popped up alot.........to keep it "clean", I just added white ribbon and a few "diamond" jewels.....check out the link and see all the other beautiful cards along with the design team...stunning!
