Flower Power Challenge

Happy New Year All!

Hope everyone has some fun things planned for this evening. I wish you all a wonderful and safe New Year's eve and a happy and healthy New Year!

I just recently posted a new Whimsy Challenge on PCP. This one is called Flower Power. Make a project using flowers in some way....you can stamp them, use floral paper, add flower embellishments, anything with flowers. I'm getting tired of winter already and want to see some touches of Spring! Have fun with this one. Oh, and if you have a Whimsy image, please use it! I love to see all your fabulous Whimsy creations! You'll have until Saturday, January 10th to enter and I will choose one random winner to receive a free Whimsy Stamp!


This is the card I made for the challenge. I got lots of flowers for Christmas from my good friend Jo, as well as from Santa...;) my hubby!

I started with a base of pink and added some Parisian Summer dsp from SU!. I used my spiral punch on the edging, first time I think I've used this one too. I also distressed the edges. The main image is my Whimsy Animals Skunk. I colored him with an aquapainter and re-inkers and a Brick White Copic, the grass is also a Copic. Still haven't mastered the use of these markers, I need to see a tutorial! Anyone? The other embellishments are Vanilla HPH and a heart shaped piece of metal, and some ribbon.

Thanks for popping over! Have a wonderful holiday! Happy Stamping! :)
