All that scraps challenge

I need to work on my blog post titles, very boring but I am just not that imaginative, usually. I have several designs from All that scraps but haven't used them nearly enough. I love this little Birgitta on stump and the challenge this week is to make handmade flowers. Mine are pretty simple, a stamped and colored image in the corner and a rolled rose in the center of the ribbon but they are both handmade so I am good to go.

I also used a little charm I picked up last weekend and hung it from the ribbon, it is a little mushroom and just fit this image perfectly. The butterfly is clear green plastic but I added some light green stickles to the wings and brown stickles to the body so it actually came out pretty well. The paper is called the Cotton Stack that I picked up at Michaels a few days ago. Don't know why I didn't get it before, the papers are nice and bright with glitter on quite a few. Right up my alley.

Okay, that is it for tonite. Check back in the morning for my next kraftin kimmie guest dt card, purty purty!

I love this card Amanda.
I have quite a few of these stamps too, maybe I need to try actually using them sometime?
Love your colouring and in particular the HAIR!!
Pretty colours and your embellies are spot on.
