Amusing Challenge

First of, let me wish all the moms and grandmothers out there a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Each Sunday I’ll be having a different type challenge – but over a month you will see:  “use it”, theme, color or a sketch challenge.   This week’s Amusing Challenge is a theme:  flowers!  Perfect for Mother’s Day, right?!  And, the random winner this month will receive a prize package of 10 sheets of polka dot paper – each a different color!

My card was inspired by a color combo that I’ve seen a couple of times recently.  The Papaya and Slate are beautiful and elegant together, I think.  This is really a quick and easy card to make.  I used Floral Duets (yes, again!) and I find that I grab it often.  Having a bold and line image, in two sizes, makes this a perfect stamp set!  The a•muse studio inks have such a great look, if you don’t have any yet, they are on sale this month for 20% off so it’s the perfect time to try one or two…or get a few!

The next card is from Cyndi – I love this Damask Shimmer paper from a•muse studio and find it stunning in black!  Essential Sentiments always has the perfect saying for any cardmaking situation…

Juliet made a beautiful wreath by stamping Clever Girls over and over again in different inks and then punching them all out … which beats all that fussy cutting!  Fussy cutting was last week’s challenge so be sure to stop by tomorrow to see our winner and top three!
