Give yourself a Challenge

Happy Friday everyone:

So excited to share this little card with you today!  As you may have noticed I am taking the Kick Start online card class over at Online Card Classes, one of the lessons' challenge is to team up with a fellow stamper to make a card using the same stamp!  Isn't it fun?!  So I teamed up with the talented Barb Engler whom I got to know from the Hero Arts flickr group, we've decided to use the Large Flower Background stamp from Hero Arts.  You could check her blog here and her Flickr photostream here.  So here's my card:


I stamp the Large Flower Background on acetate with StazOn (Cotton White), then coloured the flowers with glaze pens and adhere to mustard yellow cs as shown.  The faux Washi tape on the bottom is stamped with the same stamp with Distress ink (Wild Honey), and the ink used for the sentiment on top. 

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
