Pink, Brown and Green Day!

That's the challenge today over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. Our sponsor this week is our own design team member Donna. She has some really cool printable papers that I used on my card today. You can purchase her CD HERE. I had so much fun with them. These were printed on an inexpensive matte photo paper. It has been fun to experiment with printing on different types of paper. Stamping on matte photo paper makes your ink look a little dry. I kind of liked the look for this card so I just went with it. I used a set from My Favorite Things called Build a Bouquet. I love the shabby chic feel of this card. I have some of my OWN favorite things all on one card....that chocolate ric ric, the new grommets from SU, faux stitching, and shimmerz on the petals.

I hope you get a chance to play over the next week so that you have a chance to win some papers. Check out the design team's creations located on the side of my blog.

Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Build a Bouquet, Bundle of Bouquets (MFT)
Paper: Bearly Mine printed on Printworks Matte Photo, White, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Cert Celery, Choc Chip, Pixie Pink Craft, Sahara sand
Other:Paper Piercer, Soft Subtles brads, dimensionals, Grommet (SU), MS lace doily punch, Close to Cocoa marker, Shimmerz, Ribbon from Joann's and Walmart

Hope you have a fabulous Sunday!
