Challenge Fun- FS527

Hello Friends!
Long time no post... my friend, Denise inspired me to pull out my blog and post. So, here you have it.
I thought it would be fun to play a Splitcoast Stampers challenge too. I chose the Featured Stamper Challenge 527 (FS527) where Linda (SCS name bubblestx4) was the featured artist. I chose Linda's "Wth Wild Abandon" card seen below & the details are here.
I loved Linda's card however, I'm not crazy about my card, but it is close to what I had in mind. I purchased these inexpensive but lovely textured, pre-made cream colored cards with a silver 'Thank you' sentiment.
My idea was to "up-cycle" the cards for my daughter who is getting married in May. They will need lots of thank you cards. But I'm going to have to keep experimenting until I get it just right- maybe embossing flowers with a wash? Regardless, I sure had fun playing- it's been way too long since I created a true original, albeit using Linda's card as inspiration. Pinterest has such great ideas, I just end up copying a wonderful creation from another stamper.
 Anyway...Have a great week!
