Simply Scrapping and Crafts Card Challenge March 23rd

Thursday again here in NZ, which means it's Wednesday in the USA... and time for another card challenge over at the Wednesday card group at Simply Scrapping and Crafts site.  Please do join us ~ it's a fun challenge set by the lovely Clare. To use only ONE stamped image or sentiment on your card ...and no multiple stampings!  So I pulled out some patterned paper after seeing a card on the wonderful Deborah Nolan's blog ( here) and some of my new flowers and came up with this.
One stamp Wonder


I am a lover of all things purple so took that as my main colour scheme.  The purple dotted paper was in pack of 3 sheets I picked up for a $1 at the craft expo last week.  And the hydrangea strip was a scrap from a Webster's Pages sheet.   I used a Martha Stewart punch on some cream copier paper for the lacey border.  The bottom two layers of the flower are some I got at the Expo as well, top with one I punched.  The leaves are cut from a paint chip with a Sizzix die.

Do pop over to SSC and see what the other lovely ladies in the DT have produced... and enter the challenge.   It's free to join and there is just so many lovely groups there.  Something for everyone.

I'm also entering this into Joy's challenge (over at Less is More) ~ make a card inspired by someone else.  This was inspired by Deborah

Nearly the weekend.... lots to do this weekend... off to the Shipping Ball on Saturday night... bought a new dress....and then off to Hamilton on Sunday for a Memorial Service for Peter's sister...

Take care...
