This card was made for two challenges. First, the CR84FN63 challenge (below) to use the colors denim, tan and brown. They are having an open call for Design Team members. I'm all over that! Wouldn't that be a blast to be a part of that awesome DT?!!
Several months ago I purchased two pairs of toddler jeans at the local Goodwill. I intended to make some denim flowers but I never got around to it. So when I saw the CR84FN challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do- make those flowers after all! I was struggling with the design when I decided to look out on blogland at some of the sketch challenges & found this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge, PPA143 (below) which was perfect for my flower idea! It's a great sketch, very versatile- I'd like to use it with my blossom punch later.
Stamps: Vintage Labels (SU- retired)
Paper: Basic Brown textured, Very Vanilla (SU!)
Designer Paper: Basics Manilla (Basic Grey)
Ink: Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger)
Accessories: Denim, Burlap material; Corduroy Brad (Eyelet Outlet), Dahlia nestabilities (Spellbinders), Pop-Pom ribbon (stash), Curly Label punch & 1" circle punch (SU)

CR84FN challenge to use lavender, peach and a neutral & I chose vanilla. They are also having a DT open call. I would so love to be a part of this design team. Check it- there is still time for you to throw your hat in the ring. I am not much of a lavender color gal although it is one of my most favorite scents. That's it from here! Have a great evening! Hugs, Marilyn

My card today was made for two challenges over on Splitcoaststampers; the sketch challenge from today SC401 which is shown below. The other challenge was the SCS color challenge from yesterday, CC391, to use Basic Gray, Chocolate Chip and Gumball Green.
I used the cute stamps from Paper Smooches called Birthday Buddies- love these adorable characteres. My DP is from the DCWV Green stack. I colored my dog with SU! markers- retired Creamy Caramel & Going Gray & Gumball Green for his hat. The card base is Very Vanilla & the other cardstock is Basic Gray, Chocolate Chip and Gumball Green.
Have a great evening & thanks for stopping over!
