Paper Smooches Trend Watch Challenge Sept 2-8

Hello everyone!  Today I have a very fun project to share with you!  Paper Smooches is having a challenge on their blog this week and it's their Trend Watch Challenge!

This weeks inspiration comes from this photo:

Our challenge was to create anything with flowers.  So with that being said, here is the card I created:

I didn't have any Paper Smooches flower stamps so I dug deep in my mind and came up with this!  For this card, I actually used 3 different Paper Smooches stamps sets.  They are: Bee Mine, Giddy Bugs and Perpetual Bliss. I used 1 heart stamp from the Perpetual Bliss for one of the flowers, Bee Mine I used one heart for the second flower, the squiggly line for the flower stems & the lady bug. And for Giddy Bugs, I used the butter fly, motion stamp and the sentiment.  Wheeeeww!!!  That was a lot of description for this quick and easy card!  I used Studio Calico Snippets 6x6 paper pad for the grass, diamond stickles for the butterfly wings, recollections bling for the flower centers and glossy accents for the two hearts.  Did a quick wash of copic colors on the butterfly and used a lot of my blender! 

 I think it turned out soooo cute!  I love the squiggly lines for the flower stems!  It makes them look so whimsical!  I will definately use that combination again!  This just goes to show that you can create a lot more with stamps you have on hand already!  I could have went and bought a new set with flower images, but instead I used my creativity and came up with this super cute layout!
