Simon Says........Flower Power!!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

Good morning!!  It's that time again, a Simon Says Stamp challenge!  This week it's one of my favorite topics , Flower Power!!  The Design Team  and our May Guest Designer Annette are using Prima and/or Casual Fridays products this week.  If you have any we'd love to see you using them too!  I know Prima for their beautiful flowers, but did you know that they also make papers and stamps?  I chose one of their paper pads and matching flowers for this card today:



Earth Laughs

The collection is called Sun Kiss, and the colors are spring-like aquas, sunny yellows, and greens.  I chose one of the papers as my background and 2 of the 6 flowers included in the package, and added a doily and some buttons.  My sentiment is from an Impression Obsession set called In a Garden.

While I had that Sun Kiss paper pad open, I chose another paper featuring sunflowers and one of the little tags that are included on one of the pages, and put them together, just adding a ribbon and a die-cut sunflower centered with a button.



Dear Heidi has given us another $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner of this challenge.


You can use it for anything you'd like at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!
