Simon Says..........Thinking of You

wed-newchallenge-header
It's Wednesday and time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Our theme this week is an easy one - Thinking of You!  The design team are using Prima products, and we'd love to see you using them also, if you have them. I chose a paper pad and some matching flowers from one of their newest collections.  Here are my cards:

SSS Nov. 5

supplies: Prima's Cigar Box Secrets paper pad and matching flowers, a Hero Arts pool layering paper (medium shade), an Impression Obsession's Greetings die, tatted lace trim

And a 2nd card, using more of the papers and another of the flowers:

SSS Nov5

supplies: cardstock, same papers and flower set as above, Hello die and Hand-lettered Hello stamp set, cream pearls

I love the papers in this collection; they all have that aged look about them; so I let them be the stars on my cards. And you get FIVE sheets of each of 6 double-sided designs, so these pads would be wonderful if you're making a set of coordinating cards as a gift.   I knew Prima first for their beautiful paper flowers, and these live up to their reputation, with a bit of glitter, and in lovely colors and prints to match the papers perfectly.

Okay, now it's your turn!  As usual, we are offering up a $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner of our challenge!  That will be sure to come in handy with the holidays approaching!
