DT Challenge and SOA Challenge


Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you’re taking some time to enjoy your day off and to ultimately remember why we all have this day off.

This card is serving double duty today.  As I mentioned, PCP is hosting a Stampin’ Out Alzheimer’s fundraiser beginning TODAY and IHP and the IHP Design Team are sponsoring a challenge.  So this card is a combination DT Challenge and my SOA Challenge card.  You can play along to get a change to win a Flower Soft assortment (hand selected by me!) that is valued at over $30.  The winner will get:

All you have to do to play along is donate at least $5 to the SOA fundraiser HERE and then make a card or project that uses some sort of textured flower as your focal point.  It can be Flower Soft or flock or glitter or textured paper or any other flower that is textured. 

Additionally all SOA donors are invited to use an exclusive 10% off coupon through May 31 in our store off all items, including new and on sale items. And, as always free US shipping on orders $40 and over!  But, you have to donate and login over at SOA to see our ad to get the code!

PLUS…(as if that wasn’t enough!) go HERE and leave me a comment to tell me you donated and you’ll be entered into my special thank you blog candy drawing.

So…all those incentives plus amazing giveaways through other SOA sponsors (over 40 companies!) and a chance to reach out and make a difference for a very worthwhile cause…what more reason do you need to donate just $5!?!!?  GO NOW!!!!

Back to my card details…

For my card I kind of CASED myself because I love the look of the Sunshine Yellow Flower Soft as daisy middles.  So I used some fabric flowers I had and made them into daisies.  I used the Olive Vine ribbon for stems – cute huh?  The background is embossed with the new Impressabilities Butterfly.  The greeting is from Chelsea Greetings and is stamped in Paris Lights (P.S. – ALL PALETTE INKS ARE only $5.50 now!) onto a tag from Nesties Ribbon Tag Trio and is adhered with the sage faux suede ribbon

I love all the textures on this card – the Flower Soft, the suede ribbon, the embossing and the stems.  I wish you could feel it!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
