It's getting tougher!!! I was mentioning how I wish we would all downsize our projects a bit since the contestants are all creating such AWESOME projects and I didn't know how much longer I could keep up, LOL. Well, I think this is a case of "be careful what you wish for--you might get it!" This week's challenge is to make JUST a card. BUT (you knew there had to be a BUT, didn't you?), we had to use a specific stamp set--Build a Bouquet (had been sent to us by Kim, so I knew it was coming sooner or later, LOL). That's it--use that set. And it's one of those "build it" sets that I'm usually not fond of, BUT (another BUT), me and this set became good friends during the making of this card. I'll be going back to it again, I'm sure, because I really like what you can do with this set.
This ended up being a really fun project, although I wasn't sure it was going to be much fun when we got the challenge, LOL. Thanks to the MDT team for making me think outside of the box! My color inspiration initially came from a co-workers scrub top--it has a black background and lots of flowers that resemble the stamps in bright colors. But when I browsed through SCS Inspiration Challenge site on Saturday and saw this, my fate was sealed, LOL!
