YNS Challenge #20: Flower Power

Happy Wednesday everyone!

This morning I'd like to share with you my DT card for Your Next Stamp Challenges.  It's Starlet Angela's turn to set the theme for Challenge #20 and she has chosen... FLOWER POWER!  So we want to see you use flowers as embellishments, flowery paper, flowery embossing, flower punches, etc....

Dopey old me thought that Your Next Stamp was sponsoring Off The Wall Craftiness this week and so I combined that challenge with today's YNS challenge card.  Then I checked the OTWC blog and saw that I am a week behind myself, LOL!  It was last week's OTW challenge YNS sponsored - so I am a week late! Doh! Sorry everyone!! :o)

So this week I have used my new Hula Hoop Fhiona stamp to create my card and followed the fab sketch at The Sweet Stop.  The DP is from my Cosmo Cricket DeLovely 6x6 paper pad, accented with some Fuschia Fizz Core'dinations cardstock.  If you click on the picture of my card to enlarge it you'll see that I've glittered-up Fhiona's pink hula hoop to make it nice and sparkly and also added a heart pearl to accent her hairband.

Don't forget that Your Next Stamp rubber stamp company is currently holding a DESIGN TEAM CALL!  We are looking for new DT members to start on 1st September.  You have until 31st July (2010) to get your applications in and you can read in full how to apply HERE.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. The Sweet Stop SSS63 Challenge - Sketch
2. TotallyPaperCrafts Challenge 23 - One of the Girlies
3. Magical Crafts Challenge 18 - Flower Power
4. Quirky Crafts Challenge 31 - Ribbon

Do pop on over to YNS Challenges and check out what the rest of Starlets have created.
