...Technique Lovers and Color Challenge Combo

I have absolutely fallen in love with this set. I have seen thousands of cards made with it, but I had no problem making an original of my own. Fabulous Flowers is is such a fabulous set to work with! I had to make a card for two challenges so that I wouldn't get too far behind. So I decided to mix a color and a technique together. The technique was to make a paper tole image; and the colors were Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, and Bayou Blue (love, love, love this new in-color). The largest flower was stamped twice. I cut out one whole large flower, then I trimmed the second flower a little closer to the center to make it layer the largest. I stamped the six-petal flower, cut it out, and made it the top of the cluster. Brads make up the center of the bloom, and I used a glue pen and chocolate glitter to add some *sparkle*. The sentiment is embossed in chocolate to give it a little dimension. The background on the card is Canvas in Sahara Sand, and the background used on the panel is French Script in Chocolate Chip. I hope you all love it as much as I do!

On a different note, I wanted to thank Ina and Sharon for ordering some stamp sets from me! I have sent them to you both using priority mail. I have also sent you an email regarding shipping and handling. Please let me know when you receive the email and your sets. I am so glad that these have found a home where they will be loved and used. Thanks also to Lakesha, Pam, Martha Lynn, Melanie, Jan, Cindy, Gina, Betty, LaShonne, Candee, Lois, and Kaye-you ladies know who you are! I appreciate your business and your friendship more than you'll ever know! Mr. (or in my case, Mrs.) Brown should be delivering our goodies sometime Monday!!!! I will send you girls an email to let you know for certain when it gets here.

Well, I am tired and I want to watch "300" with my I will say goodbye until tomorrow! Hugs ~ Mercy
