The Flower Challenge #29.....

Hello everyone: Today all of us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE have a very easy one for you to play with. I know there are some really awesome sales at the end of the year that some of us, me included, took advantage of.
This year I'm trying to really use all of my old sets, which I love, some I haven't used in years and that is a shame but, I also have some spanking new sets I bought last year and this card is made with one of them.

This is a gorgeous stamp and dies bundle from Stampin' Up! called "Climbing Roses Bundle", I chose this set to get a free stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog but also because it's simply beautiful as it is versatile.
I stamped this image with Stazon black ink on white card stock and colored them with Prismacolor pencils, then using the die, I cut it out and placed it on my panel with dimensionals. I die cut the trellis and the sentiment tag, the sentiment is from the set.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

I used a couple of old sets to decorate this panel, the "Delicate Details" from SU and the sentiment from "Sassy Succulents" from Power Poppy.

I hope you have some time to come and play along with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE using your new stamps and or dies, we can't wait to see what you create.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

  5. Oh, this IS a beautiful set! Those flowers are trailing so free and easy down the trellis and I absolutely love the colors you used. Your card is just beautifully done, Maria. I'd have to think which is my latest flower stamp or die... it would be from last year.

  6. Hi Maria, What a great card and I especially love the orange as I have CRPS and orange represents that condition so I especially love it when see orange in cards. This is a fantastic card to give to a friend and I love your colouring with the pencils. Thanks for joining in with us at the Incy Wincy Designs challenge. Thanks Cheryl DT
