New Challenge @ Shopping Our Stash #SOS491

 Today begins a new challenge at...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS491 ...A theme challenge!!  Flowers!! Flowers Everywhere!!  We want you to shop your stash and find those flowers, whether it is stamps, stencils, embellishments, designer papers, or dies!!  What do you have that hasn't been used in a while that would fit our flower theme??  For my card I pulled out one of my all time favorite stamp sets that has retired from Stampin Up, Butterfly Basics along with some very old designer papers!  Now is is your turn...shop your stash and find those items that fit our FLOWER challenge and then play along with us.  We can't wait to see your creations!!

Flowers!! Flowers!! Flowers!! #SOS491

Two other challenges also inspired this card...

Try Stampin On Tuesday // #TSOT595 ...A sketch challenge!!  With a twist...Stripes!!  I used some very old designer paper from my stash for the stripes...those light pink stripes make for a nice background.

TicTacToe Challenges // #tttc109 ...A game board challenge!!  My winning three in a row are spring, floral, and sympathy.  I love creating sympathy card...not because of the need (that is never a good reason) but because I know it will truly brighten someone's day.

Card #2 was inspired by 2 challenges...

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS408 ...A color challenge!! Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue, and Old Olive!!  A very nautical combination!!  Well, for me it is...if you have been following me for any length of time you know I can make just about all color combos into a nautical, beachy theme!! LOL!!

Just Add Ink // #JAI641 ...An inspiration photo challenge!!  Oh yes...you know I loved this one!!  I am sure you will see me again here on this challenge because you have picked a favorite of mine!!
