Flowers and Ribbons

Just a few cards I made today just before I upload my VSN posts for this weekend!

This first is for Friday Mashup's Challenge #21 for the sketch and embossing, The Shabby Tea Room's Challenge #76 to use pink, peach, green, neutrals and handmade flowers and for Just Add Ink's Challenge #82 to use something old that you haven't used in a while. I can't remember the last time I used this stamp set, the ribbon has been retired a while now and the brads are from a Hallowe'en purchase at least 2 years ago!

Stamps: A Beautiful Thing from Stampin' Up, Beautiful Blooms II from Papertrey Ink
Papers: Pink Pirouette, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White all from Stampin' Up
Inks: Pink Pirouette, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz all from Stampin' Up
Accessories: Pink Pirouette Ribbon (retired) from Stampin' Up, Lace from Cuddly Buddly, Mini Rolled Roses Die from My Favorite Things, Brads from Imaginisce, Damask Designs Impression Plate from Papertrey Ink

This next card is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #5 for August, Colour Create's Challenge #78 to use kraft, red and white/cream and for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #86 to add some bling! I used glitter glue and some shiny heart pearls.

Stamps: Thankful Accents, Birthday Surprise both from Verve
Papers: Naturals Ivory, Real Red, Crumb Cake all from Stampin' Up, Red Patterned Paper from My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Hazel pack, Brown Patterned Paper from Linen Closet from DCWV
Inks: Real Red, Crumb Cake both from Stampin' Up
Accessories: Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon both from Stampin' Up, Heart Pearls from Hobbycraft, Circle Nestabilities, Icicle Stickles

And my final card for this post is for Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #179 for the sketch, Just Magnolia's Let's Play Bingo challenge (I chose distressing, flowers and paper piecing) and for Magnolia-licious' Inspiration Challenge #10. I used the colours pink and green and the big bow from the photo as my inspiration!

Stamps: Cutie Circus Tilda from Magnolia, Embellishments, Just The Ticket both from Papertrey Ink
Papers: Pink Pirouette, Sage Shadow (retired) both from Stampin' Up, Copics White, Patterned Papers from Wild Rose Studio's Girly Polka Dots Pack
