Another new challenge from the Delicious Diva Challenge Blog!! (You know … that FANTABULOUSLY GROOVY blog that voted my last entry as the winner!!! Sorry … couldn’t resist patting myself on the back again!!! 😉 ) I will try not to mention it anymore!!! 😀
Anyway, back to the challenge … this time a COLOUR CHALLENGE! Make sure you click on the challenge button … to check out some gorgeous samples for this challenge!
I did enjoy working with these colours … but decided that my cameo coral and pumpkin pie are a little hard to pick because I used both quite sparingly! But … even so … I think this card is quite sweet!
I am REALLY taken with this Sweet Stems stamp set. It is a wonderful set to use as backgrounds … as borders … and for main images like I have used here. This has to be one of the BARGAIN sets of the IB&C this year!!! I just love it! The main image is actually 3 x the stamp image … carefully placed with my Stamp-a-ma-jig to look like it is one image! (If you are having trouble picking the pumpkin pie & cameo coral … I have used some of the BRAND NEW designer brads – pumpkin pie flowers & the circle centres of all the flowers are all coloured with pumpkin pie ink. The cardstock & centres of each petal are done in cameo coral!) Can you see the pretty Dazzling Diamonds on the petals, too???
So pop on over to the Delicious Diva blog … and have a go at the challenge, too! The Delicious Divas will accept entries by email if you don’t have a blog! No excuse not to have a go yourself!!!

Hi Andrea, I have been really busy so I have not created for such a long time, but had a few minutes free to check out some blogs. This card is fantastic I really love the idea of the repeat stamping of the images.
Andrea adds: Hi Kathryn … so nice to see you!!! I probably should’ve mentioned that I used my SAMJ to position the flowers perfectly. It does look lovely, doesn’t it! xx
That is such a pretty card, the colours are lovely and you’ve used that set in such a clever way.
Andrea adds: I am such a fan of this set!! So sweet … just like the name! Thanks, Fiona! xx
Gorgeous card and fantastic take on the colours, thanks so much for playing along and joining us at Delicious Diva Challenges. Hope to see you back again next challenge, xx.
Andrea adds: Hi Kellie … it is fun playing along… thanks for your kind words … I will definitely be playing again! xx
Gorgeous Andrea! Another amazingly beautiful card. Your gorgeous winning goodies will be posted tomorrow, can you let me know when they arrive. Thanks for playing with delicious Diva.
Andrea adds: 😀 I will look forward to the goodies … but wasn’t really expecting anything … I just reallly enjoy playing! thanks heaps again! xxx
I think you have done an awesome job with this card Andrea. It balances perfectly!! The cut out sprigs on the corners must hav taken FOREVER to cut around!! The wee flower brads are also GORJUS!! Well done.
Andrea adds: “Gorjus” … you made me smile again!! Glad you liked this one. 😀
Just gorgeous – can you teach me to cut out fine stems without chopping them in half – LOL
Andrea adds: Hi Debbie! I know … it is tricky. I just love my SU! paper snips … wouldn’t be withouth them. xx
