Embellish It!

Please scroll down for Whimsy Blog Hop posts

Happy Friday All!

Hope you all had a great week. It's been very busy here with lots going on and I sure am ready for the weekend!

As you all know, Friday means Stamp Something day with a new challenge and this week we want to see your embellished somethings. You can make anything you wish, a card or scrap page or even a 3D item, and all we ask is that you use at least 3 embellishments. You can use anything from flowers to brads or eyelets to chipboard and you can use as many as you want. Head on over to Stamp Something and check out this week's embellishment blog candy donated by My Little Ribbon Shop and of course take a look at the sweet embellished eye candy the DT created this week using donations from our sponsor!

Here's my card for this challenge....

I created this one using BasicGrey Urban Prairie papers with matching SU! card stock. The image is a sweet Gorjuss Girl and she has some paper piecing on her outfit. This fits with the challenge at Lili of the Valley. I also was in the mood for flowers as the sun was actually shining when I was making this card! Amazing, I know! The challenge at Creative Card Crew is whatever the weather so I got that covered with this one too! And lastly, the challenge at Charisma Cardz is to create anything you wish, so I made this a birthday card with the sentiment Wish Big from SU!.

Now, as for Stamp Something and all my embellishments, well I covered that challenge with the chipboard button, black and white gingham ribbon, Prima Flowers, Buttons, Brads, and the flower charm! I'd say I definitely embellished it! And I have to say, I don't typically combine challenges when it's Stamp Something day, but this week has been crazy busy and I haven't had much time for crafting so I wanted to get the most bang for my buck! And, since we don't mind if you combine our challenges with other challenges, I decided why not!

Thanks for dropping by today, have a fabulous weekend! Hope the sun is shining where ever you are! Happy Stamping! :)
