Nothing Like a Challenge on World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day!

I think today is going to be a fun day all
across blog land as so many paper crafters are
taking part in sharing their creations.
I actually am sharing this card with a few challenges.

Sketch Challenge #130

'CAS or Tags'

Unity Stamps/SCS
'Handmade Flower Embellishments'

Unity Stamp Company

'Flowers and Frills'

and here is my offering...

I absolutely LoVe these new papers from BasicGrey.
The 'Jovial' Collection.  Both the background and
flower were created from this set.

Check out this little collection...

 I made these in the workroom of Archivers when I spent
the day there last Sunday.  They're made from the
'Tattered Blooms' die cut from Tim Holtz/Sizzix.
The sentiment is from one of my faves...Unity!

It's not as easy to tell from the photo, but the flower
is 3-D and each petal is pulled 'up' for a layered effect.
Add a little Prima 'bling, and beautiful brads also
from BasicGrey and you are set!

Short and sweet...hope you enjoyed it!

If you did, won't you please leave a little comment
before you go?  I LoVe to hear from you.

I will actually be back a little later with another
post.  I have a batch of birthday shopping photos
to share from my trip to Archivers
I am late with a giveway from last week's
Growing in Unity.

Enjoy World Card Making Day
and I will see you a little bit later!
