you rock...

Hey!!  Popping in with a card for the current Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge, as well as the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.  With summer coming to an end I have been in a bit of a creative funk... not sure why, but it happens.  I fiddled around with what to make for the Pin-Sights challenge and decided that I didn't want to do flowers... I always do flowers!  So I looked through my small assortment of EE stamps and dies and decided to use the You Rock die set.  I did through in a little flower that I created with the Bold Blossoms and Bold Blooms Matching dies.   No stamping on this card whatsoever!  I was inspired by the colors and to my eye I saw gold and silver thus the gold sparkle backing for my flower and the silver diamond.  Hope I'm not wrong!  Anywhoo... pretty simple... make lots of die cuts, stack and adhered to strip of woodgrain cardstock that had a thin border of red cardstock adhered to it.  I was going to put it on a white cardstock base, but went with light gray.  Overall I think this looks pretty darn boring... just being real, lol!


Hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Soft Stone, dark pink, light pink, green, red scraps, MFT silver and gold glitter cardstock, Ranger woodgrain; Dies:  Essentials by Ellen

Fun use of all die cuts, Rosemary! I'm still trying to figure out what to make--maybe today.
