Here is the ....and more....!!

The last post my title was "Cupcake Challenge....and more!" and then I didn't post the ....."and more"!!!

So sorry about that, but the little hens and their eggs were calling......but now I can post the next challenge that I did and that was Beate's Challenge!!

You can check that sketch challenge out here!

I started out with the brand new not-yet-released paper from SEI called Dill Blossom. Marcie and I won it at an auction! Well, it might be released by now, but I like being able to say it....

I cut it up into four equal sections and sponged the edges with Versamark Jumbo Java ink. Then I applied it to my base card which is Papertrey Ink's Spring Moss cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment which is from River City Rubber Works in the jumbo java also and sponged the edges with it. River City Rubber Works has soooo many fabulous stamps with beautiful sentiments ready for anything you are going to make! They also have a 30% off section which is too good to pass up!!

The flower is from Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms and I stamped and cut them out by hand and then put them all together with pop up glue dots.

Those freakin' dots......I put the flower on and then thought - "crap, it's too high" and I mean immediately, I went to pull it off and-- NO way!! It is stuck for life!!! So there it is.....

I paper pierced a stem freehand and then popped up the sentiment with "those freakin' dots"!! LOL!!

I love this sentiment. When things look bad and sometimes things ARE bad, you really need to remember all that is goodness in our lives......which is A LOT when you start thinking - and sometimes digging deep!! Sometimes it is hard - but like it says - entirely possible!!

  2. I think it looks great!
    Hugs and smiles
