5-28-13 Outlawz Tuesday color challenge.
The colors are Wondrous Blue, Hot Pink (I used SU!'s Pink Passion) and White.
The twist is to use the flowers
5-29-13 Outlawz Wednesday sketch Challenge
I think the price of flowers for scrap booking and card making are a bit excessive.
So I just head down to my nearest $1 store, purchase a stem of whatever flower I want and I deconstruct them. I get a nice pile of "silk" flowers for my crafting for pennies.
The large pink one on this card from is from that process. The two smaller ones are from my stash.
The butterfly border was created using the large butterfly border punch from MS and I used scraps to make the bow, The pearl center is a button from my stash
The card base is white paper from Michaels
Here is my card

We citizens become ever so complacent and forget that our firefighters and police officers put their lives in jeopardy every time they answer a call. By the Grace of God, most of the time they make it home to their love ones safe and sound... but once in a while we are given a brutal and sad reminder of what they face when they put on their uniforms.
Please say a prayer for all the First Responders in your communities. Let them know you appreciate what they do everyday to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Ok then ... the challenge is to use a boat!
The brads and the cardstock the ship & sentiment are on came from my stash.
I don't really have a nice size circle die to create a card with and I didn't want to try and cut one out so I compromised.

The challenge for today is to make a card for Mothers Day or another special women in your life. Since I already made my Mother Day cards I decided this one will go to a dear friend of mine in Ohio.
I used SplitCoastStampers Stampin Up! Color Challenge CC23: Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery & Apricot Appeal. The Stamped image is from The Angel Company and the Scallop ovals were cut with spellbinders dies. The Sketch is from The Deconstructed Sketch
The flowers are cut out and popped up on 3 levels. The vase is also cut out and popped up.
Thanks for looking,

Time for another challenge from the Outlawz Challenge.
I was playing with a new technique I found on pinterest where you emboss with spellbinder dies and versamark creating a watermark effect on the paper.... very cool
I decided I wanted to use the technique on this card challenge so I used Spellbinder Label Four but instead of leaving the watermark alone, I just had to play around and used some translucent gold embossing powder I have from Judikins and I love how it came out!
I am also trying to use colors combinations outside my comfort zone so I printed off the SU! color challenge list from SplitCoastStampers and randomly selected a number ...
The colors I used are Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi and So Saffron.
and here is my card
