Two challenges in one...

First I have to thank two wonderful ladies who have inspired tonight's card... Dawn who posted today a wonderful video tutorial on making these cute cards( you can find the tutorial here) and to Kristina for posting a great color combo inspiration over on her blog (it can be found here.)

My card is a double slider card and I love the color combo...


I found a stamp set that had been sitting in the corner of my stamp room collecting dust and decided to put it to work on this card...
I stamped part of the main flower in this set and watercolored it with blush blossom, groovy guava, and wild wasabi. I then could not resist putting some stickles on the flowers...

I needed the perfect sentiments to go on the pullouts and I then reach for my papertrey inc set Out on a Limb. The sentiments in this set are all so beautiful. I really had to dig in my ribbon stash to find the perfect one for this card... but I did find a piece... well I'm off for the night hope you all had a great evening...


Supplies:
Stamps: fancy pants Simple Stated, papertrey inc Out on a Limb
Cardstock: groovy guava, blush blossom, wild wasabi, so saffron, basic black, whisper white
Ink: basic black, groovy guava, blush blossom, wild wasabi
Accessories: ribbon, stickles, aquapainter

hello aimee,
thanks for vistiting me today.
about my stamps.. yes i do have a lot. i was lucky that a friend from germany was getting sick about her collection and she traded with me most of her stamps for Stampin Up supplies. She had so many she wanted to sell and at that point i could not buy them all and nobody on scs was interested :-) she wanted only like $3.50 for a stamp. now i could kill myself that i did not get them all.

oh well.. iam not complaining. Magnolia just sent me new stamps but i do still buy a lot to my collection.

hugs
and happy eastern
