A New Challenge !

Kim Wilson has been waiting for weeks to get her followers # up so she can start her challenges. Her blog is Off The Wall Craftiness and it would be great if you could stop over and and show her a little love. She has chosen a great inspiration piece and I just wanted to start playing.

My first card is a more mature card. My papers are from Making Memories and Bo Bunny. I owned one piece of that shabby chic blue paper and I have been hoarding it ages. The stamps are from Melanie Muenchinger's stamp set called "A Year of Flowers". It is from Gina K. Designs. I used different methods to color the roses, including Copics, OMS and pencils, and chalk inks. My border is an MS punch. To accent I used gems, ribbon, and piercing. I created the little butterflies with a Judith stick stamp of a heart and all you do is add bodies.

My second card is a wild, off the wall, baby card! I stuck with the colors but over embellished it. It was so crazy fun. This one was just for a hoot. Heck I even made my first handmade flower! You know we all have those stashes of things that we don't want to admit to. It's okay to giggle........ honest. Look at those awesome Sticko stickers!

On a serious note, I tried something new. This is the first that I colored pearls with Copics and it does a great job to match colors. That I will use again. So how about you go visit Kim at her blog and try her challenge? Did I mention that there is a prize sponsored by Simon Says Scoot...... go try it!
