Happy Hump Day everyone!! I can't believe it is the middle of the week already again!  Wow! Time Flies! is time for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp.  We had such a great time viewing all the Thank you or Thanksgiving Challenge cards.  This week's hostess is the fabulously talented and sweet Wendy.  Wendy's YNS challenge is to "Grow your own" or to make your own flowers on your card or project.  While it is not required to use a YNS challenge for the challenge, we would love to see them if you have them and you may only enter one NON YNS creation per challenge.  You can link your creations here. This challenge lasts two weeks.
For my creation I used the YNS Just Swimming By stamp set.  I colored her with copics and added some sparkle.  The dp is a combo from my scrap Stash and from retired SU paper.  I used two dies from the Fancy tags (spellbinders to create my sentiment panel).I made a ribbon flower.  It has been a while since I made one of these.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
