Card no. 99 - Inky Challenge

Hello there!  It's Wednesday and we have a brand new Challenge for you on the Inky Impressions Challenge Blog - this week it's Flowers. Make sure to enter!

I have used these gorgeous papers by American Crafts (I've been using them a lot lately) and (of course) the super-duper cute Lili's Present stamp.  I colored her with Copics & ProMarkers (with few ShinHans), I added a lot of Sticles & even Glimmer Mist. I did a little 3D layering using foam squares.
I made a banner with my Spellbinders (Nested Pennants & Nested Lacy Pennants) and tied them together with Pink Paisley's Twine - absolutely delish! BTW. The lace is from JoAnn's (they keep it in ribbon-by-the-yard section). Flowers are Prima, the branch is punched out with Martha Stewart punch.


The Front View


I've got my inspiration from the fabulous layout at Sunday Sketch & Stamp Blog - Challenge # 51, City Crafter is celebrating their birthday & what a better challenge than Happy Birthday Cards, Pear Tree Designs is challenging us to use Lace. Yum! BTW - wonderful Mina from PinkPuds has made a card using all these challenges on her blog. I like to "cruze" around the Blogland to search for new challenge blogs - and a lot of ladies use different challenges.
I also added the April Cute & Girly Challenge over at By the Cute and Girly.


The 3D Detail

Enjoy!

Oh, my next card will be my #100, so I think I have to put together some yummy candy.... hmmmmm ....
