Happy Monday Morning All! I wanted to share the card I made yesterday for the Featured Stamper Challenge FS128 Casing Diane. Diane has a beautiful gallery and I especially loved this card. I decided to use the same Fifth Avenue Floral Stampset with the embossed background but changed the color, sentiment, layout, technique used, and embellishments. I also incorporated the Creative Inspirations Challenge to use stitching, the OCC Triple Play Less is More Challenge hosted by Jenny Gropp, and the CC227 to use lavender, banana, black and white on your card.

I paper pieced the rose using paper from the SU Tea Party paper pack. The three embellishments I used for the OCCC were bling, thread for stitching and black ribbon. The leaves were actually leaves printed on piece of the Tea Party paper.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Only Ovals, Fifth Avenue Floral
Paper: Tea Party, Black and White CS
Accessories: Black Ribbon, MS Border Punch, FIfth Ave Floral Embossing Plate from SU, Oval punches (SU), Hero Arts pearls, black thread

I hope you enjoyed today's post. Tomorrow I will be back with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge! Thanks for stopping by and for leaving such wonderful comments. I look forward to more creating and blogging today.
