World Card Making Day!

Well, it's the end of the weekend and I was able to spend most of a Sunday afternoon participating in the World Card Making Day challenges on SCS!!
The first card is my Flourishes Stamps submission for this sketch. This set is a flourished sweet pea boquet embossed in a pearl white and then watercolored. I had a humdinger of a time trying to figure out what was leaves and what were blossoms, as it was white on white. This is one time a paint by number would have come in really handy! All in all, I liked the end result though not sure I like this tilted off it's axis!
The next card was for Gina K's challenge to use the colors pumpkin, chocolate and vanilla in your card creation. I was able to whip this out using some designer paper that I have had forever, and my bowmaker for the silk ribbon. A quick and hopefully elegant card!
The last card was my Magnolia's challenge requirement to make an ornament. I have several Magnolia images, but alas no Christmas or holidays, so was delighted with the paper piecing and if you look really closely, Tilda is wearing cherries on her pinafore~~With a little glitter, it looks pretty Christmas-y, and pairs well with her patterned tights. A couple of ribbons were added, some distressing, and a couple of hours later, here ya go!!
I hope you were able to participate in one if not more of these challenges.
And anybody want to come over...we can clean up my stamp room and eat some of the chocolate hiding underneath the piles!!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Well if you do that all the time, hide chocolate under the piles, then of course I will come over and help clear the mess (did I say that? I meant clutter, errrr result of frenzied creative activity). I like all three, please don't make me choose a favorite! And yes, I agree, after painting that lovely Flourishes stamp myself, a paint by number would come in so handy!

  2. I'd be on my way if I knew how to get there!
