Hello everyone: I've been a bit slow posting like I used to, I don't know why, I think it's this awful weather, ughhh!! I'm tired of gray, cold days so my creativity is like slumbering, 😔zzzzz.  Today I decided to get in here and do something so I made a simple card and here it is.

I just sketched this bottle from a picture of wine bottles from Google, colored it with SU Cherry Cobbler ink, a bit of gold gel pen for the cap, a bit of Bashful Blue and River Rock SU markers for the label.
The sentiment and the wine glass are from a retired SU set called "Happy Hour", I only stamped the top of the wine glass with the blue marker and with the writing tip, completed the stem and base. I used the black Prismacolor pencil for the shading on the bottom.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

I used 3 different stamp sets for the inside, the Delicate Borders from SU, the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Tea in the Garden and the corks at the bottom from another retired SU set called "Tuscan Vineyard".

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

I chose to interpret the cue card word as the Bouquet of a Wine.
Hope it's ok.😊

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.
