I love my friend Pam who encourages me to be creative even when I don't "feel" like it. When I looked at the sketch I rolled my eyes because without dies to cut my circles, they always look a little wonky when I cut them with my scissors. We challenged each other to do the sketch anyways. We added 4 more extra challenges.
Colors (yesterday's color challenge
night of navy and baja breeze.)
Stamps sets: Glad glads, cracked hello and
Technique: Heat embossing
Embellishments: Sequins, pearls or rhinestones

What fun for you and Pam to encourage each other and brainstorm together! It's fun for us to see the ways you each interpret what you decided on doing, too. Yours is just as beautiful as hers, but with a slightly different vibe...

I'm so glad you have a fellow stamper to encourage you along the way. Pam's is beautiful but so is this one, MariLynn. It's artistic with it's textures and design. I would never guess you didn't have any dies. Perfectly wonderful.

Gorgeous, indeed, MariLynn. And how heart warming is your story on your friendship challenges. Everyone needs a creative bud. Must like those glads! Your card has such depth and always beautiful butterflies. They remind me of a light heart..
