Hi everyone, and thanks Dawn for a very cool challenge. I am back from my trip to Northern Ca and was so impressed by the flowers that thrive in the climate there. What are annuals here in the scruffy Northeast seemed to be perennials out west and I literally saw a Fuschia plant that was over six feet tall!! WOWZERS! The Calla Lilies were no exception, they seemed to be a favorite out there and I saw many *stands* of the beautiful and peacful flowers. They were amazing, many over 4 feet high!!!! I got out my *Me and Carrie Lou* stamp for this challenge, and stamped it on some *dollar spot* dp, and layered it on a making memories topnote die. The butterflies are punched out of the Target dp, and pearls and ribbon were added.
This card also qualifies for the Stampin B challenge which I hostessed this week, and it is to use a flower on your card! Any flower whatsoever! Please play along and be sure to use the keyword StampinB so we can find you! Herer is a link to our blog!! http://stampinbsdesignteam.blogspot.com/
