Flowers and Combined Challenge- ROP

Hello my friend!! I hope you had a wonderful weeked... cause that will mean that you're ready for a new week; and all it brings with it. This we can do with God's help. It is Monday, so that means that we're also ready for a Roses on Paper Challenge. This time it is hosted by me :) I have chosen the simple theme of flowers.. how easy is that? You can put paper flowers, foam cut flowers.. any you want. You can also have flowers on the DP, or image. Or both!

But I am also asking you to combine this challenge with another of your choice (or more than one if you wish). I love combining challenges! You get a double - or triple participation, less time and you can enter various themes, combined with a sketch! Awesome! I want to see some of your lovely ideas out there!

I have chose to use this Magnolia stamp for my Thank you card. I picked up my new Wisteria Paper pad and brads, and chose Sketch Saturday's sketch for my layout, I loved how versatile it is. Also it leaves room for different interpretations, and styles.. and embellishments. I have chosen two other challenges to enter this card: Our Creative Corner this week wants to see us use our border punches. Just Magnolia wants us to paper-piece our image. So I did both! I paper-pieced Tilda's top and part of the shoes! Isn't she cute, all in purples, and lilacs?

I used Mulled Lavender and Dusty concord Distress inks for her hair bands, shoes and background. I also used the deep purple for distressing the edges. For her jeans I used Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans. Quite a lot of bling on my card this week :) I used Stickles on the flowers, and also embellished with Bling-It Basic Grey Rhinestones. Aren't they yummy? :) If you click on the links, they will take you directly to Summer's stores, where you'll find these beautiful must- haves!

I continued the same colour scheme on the inside, and put in some quotes and more rhinestones to embellish. I hope that you like it, and that you get to participate with me. I'd be honored to have your entry.. and don't forget, you get to enter for our Belles and Whistles Guest Designer position! :)) So pop over on our challenge blog. Summer will be soon posting the challenge and the details there. You need also to check our my talented fellow DT members.. they outdone themselves once more! :)

Have a lovely week my friend :)

Thanks for looking

Wow, I am stunned both at your beautiful card and at how many challenges you were able to combine. Well done!!

I simply love your doily punch. I have been looking for it so many places now, but it's sold out everywhere. I guess I will get it eventually, sometime... :)

Have a great new week, Rosette.

Hugs, Kristin :)
