Petals and Stems
I have two cards for you today. The first card was created for this week's Blogger's Challenge and one of the Meet the Verve Divas challenges. The Blogger's Challenge required a project that includes the colors Old Olive, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Rose Red. I chose the Petals and Stems stamp set from Verve and stamped and embossed the flowers before cutting them out and adding them with dimensionals. The scalloped border was created using a Martha Stewart punch. Be sure to check out the other Blogger's Challenge members creations. You'll find a link to their sites on my sidebar.
The second card is for this week's Mojo Monday. I used a beautiful handmade paper I had on hand for the background and added some K & Company Wild Saffron PP. The stamps are from the Feelin' Groovy and Petals and Stems sets, both from Verve. I pulled out my neglected of late Stickles and they provided just the right touch of sparkle.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I am super excited because I placed an order today for the new iPhone 3G. I got an iPhone when they first came out and I love it, but somehow (honestly, I have no clue) months ago, it got damaged and no longer rings. It drives me crazy to watch the screen when I'm waiting for a call so I don't miss it. Plus, there's some great new features. I just love new toys!
Enjoy your Sunday!
