IC239 & CAS75 & F4A20

This card had a mind of its own. I started out with the Inspiration Challenge. Our inspiration site this week is Oompa. I was inspired by the little stuffed toy that you can see here. I think this little one is so cute, and I love the flower on her tummy. That flower made me think of the Elegant Bouquet EF. I have no idea how I went from that inspiration to this card but that’s what happened. I guess that’s why they call this an inspiration challenge. :o)

I combined the Inspiration Challenge with the CAS challenge -- to use dry embossing. I embossed the white layer with diagonal lines with my paper cutter/scorer, and then embossed it again with the Elegant Bouquet EF. I colored in the vines (certainly celery), flowers (daffodil delight), and flower centers (pretty in pink) with markers. I tied my ribbon, and I thought I was done. Then I remembered the Free 4 All challenge from Friday was to use something new. I just received these adhesive rhinestones, so I put them on the flower centers.

Now you see my 3 challenge card, do ya like it?

Thanks for stopping by!!
