Since I haven't made a layout in ages, I bought smaller paper pads except for Bo Bunny sicne there isn't any. Wish they did, because I love most of there papers. And some lovely flowers.

I used a digi stamp again, this time from Sassy Cheryl's and combined them with with the great Paper Mania papers again. I dusted off my flower punches to combine them to make a handmade large flowerset. Too bad, you can hardly see the layer of doily lace I added.
I am still doubting if I should add something to the back of the envelope or if I should leave it as it is.... Supplies: white envelope as base, green, pink and aqua cardstock, Paper Mania papers, doily lace paper, Sassy Cheryls digistamp, scalloped scissors, roses, organza ribbon, white puffy paint, some bling bling.
I am entering the following challenges with this project:
Get Sketchy: challenge 34
Pollycraft: challenge 41 handmade flowers
One stitch at a time : Challenge 10 flowers
Stamp scrap & doodle saturdays: challenge 37 girlee
Die cut dreams: Challenge 45 make your own flowers
Pile it on: challenge 16 make it sweet
Crafty angels online: Challenge 32 SummerI also did a new update on the look of my blog. I used Raspberry Road Designs April Showers kit and I totally love the colors. I think I will leave it like this for a while. I still need to figure out how to add a graphic instead of text for titles in my sidebars & then the look is complete :)

Spoon full of sugar: Happy Birthday
S2G Challenges: flowers
The second card is based on the latest sketch of Card Patterns. The sketch was very basic, which I like best, since I can fancy the card up as I like. And this one is also for the Karens Doodles Dutch Challenge blog. Since I have no other digi's but only the girl with flowers which was once a freebie, I have used it again. It's a lovely digi and very suitable for all kinds of occassions. I made a Get Well Soon card. Again coloured with Derwent Coloursoft. It is not visable on the photo, but I used stickles on the flower for some bling and my spica pen on the stamp.

Today I used a digi from Pollycraft to create a Happy B-Day card. (sorry for the bad photo, but it's too dark to do without flash now) The card it based on different challenges, first the pollycraft challenge in use of colors. I have picked green as extra color besides pink and brown. (love the color combo, I used some older Basic Grey Sultry papers to fit the colors. Plus I used puffy paint, which was one of my favorites to use a while back, but I realized I haven't used it a lot lately)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

This is how my card turned out. I planned to add a text for mothersday to it, but there was no room anymore, so I will put it inside later by hand. It a bouquet of flowers for my mom for Mothersday. I love the cute bear stamp of Meljen and it fitted my occassion perfectly. I colored them with Derwent pencils.
Again I used the beautiful papers of Papermania :) Supplies: white & pink cardstock, Papermania papers, Prima Marketing E-line flowers, American Crafts brads, Zva Creative crystal swirl, jewels, digistamp Meljen Designs.
