My First Challenge

I love to stalk all the great blogs out there and everyone seems to be having challenges. I found Practical Scrapers through my sweet internet friend Wanda. They are big into using what supplies you have on hand and I am making a serious effort to do that this year. Their challenge this week is to make something with flowers. The only thing I think I love more than paper is flowers! The BIG problem I have is that I am afraid to use them. I know there are no rules in this papercrafting world but I am still learning ...This card has 18 flowers on it which is a stretch for me. Who knows, maybe I'll get wild and use 20 on my next project..Lord knows I have enough!

Anyhow, I used My Mind's Eye paper (gorgeous!), some Prima flowers and lots of miscellaneous flowers. It was a fun one to make!

Peace,
Robyn

Cute, cute, cute! And did I say, cute? This card is great. Your sister will love it. I'm inspired to make one just like - don't know if I could part with 18 flowers, though!
