!st of a few posts today !

I am in the middle of decorating but took a break yesterday as I was getting sick and tired of all the "STUFF" I had to sort through! I mean . . how much "STUFF" do we need to keep ?!?!?

My first card is for "Fab'n'Funky" Challenges and the theme this week is "Flower Power". Great, quick & easy challenge and we have a FAB sponsor too who makes the most wicked flower embellishments. I have "cased" one of my own cards from a while back as I just loved how it turned out the first time around! I know . . how vain ! ! !

Stamps: Doodle for Daniel by Stamping Bella
Sentiment: Stampin' Up
Papers: DCWV & Funky Fairy
Swirl background: SU stamping wheel

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

The Pink Elephant
- ribbon and sparkle
Everybody Art Challenge - theme is "in the garden"
Colour Throwdown - sky, chocolate chip, kraft and celery. OK have to admit, if you click onto the photo you can see the green elements on the DP used for the flowers . . . I promise !
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - bow & buttons. The pearl centres of the flowers are actually buttons !

Happy Wednesday everyone and off to o another post . . . !

I love everything about this card! The layout is so awesome and I LOOOOVE those flowers! I have been trying to figure out what punches are used to make these and haven't had any luck finding them yet. Could you please tell me who the punches are by, what they're called and where I can find them? I would be forever grateful! I just love them and would truly appreciate the information!

Thank you so much for joining us this week at Stamptacular! Hope you'll join us again soon for some more challenge fun!
