Happy Friday Everyone!!! The weekend is upon us!! To begin the weekend, Wags n Whiskers is kicking off another challenge.This week's challenge is brought to us by Michele. And if you follow Michele's blog, then you are well aware that she LOVES to make her own designer flowers and rocks at it! So she is challenging us (and you) this week to:
Make your own Flowers!!

One lucky person who enters will win one Wags 'n Whiskers stamp of YOUR CHOICE!!

But remember, in order to be entered into the drawing for the free stamp, you MUST use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp.

Here is my creation:

I used Best Friends Forever and Paper pieced her using Basic Grey Lily Kate. The border around the circle panel is created with the Fleur De Lis Die. The border is created with the Martha Stewart flower vine punch. I created the flower with my blossoms die from Spellbinders. The bow is made with the bow easy and silk ribbon which is on sale at Stamp and Create for 25% off this week!! The charm is a little teddy bear...isn't that so sweet. I used the Sketch Saturday Challenge for my layout.

For my card I wanted to create a card using Basic Grey to help promote and kick off a new challenge using Basic Grey Paper. The New Challenge is Going Grey with Scrap Creations.....WOOHOOO a Basic Grey challenge how awesome!!!! This weeks challenge is to make a celebration card and of course to add some Basic Grey!!! Guess what they are offering to one lucky winner who participates in this weeks challenge???? The NEW Basic Grey paper packs Green at Heart and Kioshi!!! These are such gorgeous papers!!! How awesome is that????

Hi Chris!
This is such a beautiful card! Your niece will have it hanging on her wall for a long time, I'm sure. I think your flower looks so precious, and it is really special! I love the pearl in it. And, all around it! I think the colors are so gentle, and I love that bg dp! Her dress is adorable! As is the bow with the little charm, and the paper piercing really adds something. You, my friend, are incredible!
