I can't believe how awesome this world of card creating is. I have stumbled upon some really cool blogs of some really awesome talented people. It's addicting! I haven't figured out if it's a good thing or a bad thing. I have found myself browsing through blogs and being completely surprised by an hour passing easily.

Anyway, I stumbled upon the blog Stamping by Sam. She is so creative. I can't believe how many challenges she does with just one card. Crazy! I clicked on a few challenge links of hers and came across All Sorts Challenge Blog and 365 Cards (which had a link to Practical Scrappers).

The All Sorts Challenge 47 is using "Petals and Pearls". The Practical Scrappers Challenge is using "Glitter and Bling". I fulfilled both challenges without even knowing it! Awesome when things work out that way!

The stamp on this card is Vivienne from Kraftin' Kimmie which I bought at Stamp and Create. I think she is so cute! I made this card for my friend's birthday. I made another one with Vivienne which I will post another day.

Vivienne is embossed on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os. I cut the shapes out with my Cricut. It is a nesting file I got from Penny Duncan Creations. The card base is SU Basic Black. The pink cardstock is PTI Raspberry Fizz stamped with a flower from SU Merci Stamp set. The DP is from DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack. I really like the DP. It comes with the glitter already on it. The flowers are Prima. The black brads on the flower I bought a long time ago from Taylored Expressions. The spacers on the flower and the half pearls I bought from Stamp and Create.

Thanks for looking!

  2. Hi Yolanda

    Your post made me smile, yes, it is frightening how time flies when you are blogging and what wonderful creationbs you find out there. I think it is a continual learning cure as there is always something to wow you.

    On to your card, it's gorgeous. She looks like a girl that has fun and your colour coordination is just pefect.

    Thank you for joining in my petals and pearls theme at Allsorts this week.
