Since the design team was issued this challenge earlier -- here is my card for the challenge. It uses one of the new Hanna sets available this Thursday night at midnight -- Garden. I am just loving all the new Hanna's and pairing them with PRISM papers has been fun! Prism papers are just wonderful! I love how they are textured on one side and flat on the other. I saw a sample of their paper in a recent magazine I purchased and it is seriously amazing (coming from a former SU! only girl on card stock).

I sponged the edges of my white primas to create a different look using pretty in pink ink and a little blush blossom ink. In the center of the flowers are some of the gorgeous sparkly brads that I picked up at Hobby Lobby the other day -- they are so shimmery and pretty and I just had to have them. You can see better detail of them in the close up shot. I laid the oval on an angle (saw this in a sketch challenge once and thought I would use the idea here). I pierced the edges and used my white gelly roll pen around the piercings. I machined sewed the edges of the card. Sentiment comes from a Papertrey Ink set -- I really love how you can bend acrylic -- I did that with this sentiment to make it fit the slope of the oval better and I think it looks just right. Layout was inspired by SC173 on Splitcoaststampers.

Hope you will take some time and participate in this challenge. It is a random drawing from the entries, so you don't have to feel overwhelmed by other people who are participating whom you may deem more talented than you! I think it is super fair this way and fun for all.

Hi Amanda ~

Visiting here from SCS! I don't have any Hanna stamps (yet) but I loved looking at your samples. I love the girlie girl stamps! And your wheelbarrow of flowers looks pretty enough to pick from! Thanks for sharing!
