Blogger's Challenge #33 - Friendship Blooms


Our Bloggers Challenge mission this week was to use the following Stampin' Up! color combination: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, and Rose Red. The best part about this challenge is that those are my favorite colors from the SU palette! I thought it would be hard to combine them in one card, but this was EASY.
I used a new stamp set from Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-Bration called Friendship Blooms. I colored these flowers in a unique way -- one that I like so much that I am filming it for a TJ tutorial for June's issue! Stay tuned, Technique Junkies!
In any case, hope you all have a great weekend. Don't forget to sign up for the ISC stamp Giveaway by commenting on the appropriate post (Wednesday's post).
P.S. Does anyone have any ideas for making the Spell check start working again in Blogger? I know I can compose the post in word, but one step is always better than two, kwim? Any suggestions are appreciated.

There aren't enough flowery words to describe how beautiful this card is, Pat! Simply stunning! The flowers are so realistic!

Shell said...

Beautiful card!!!! I can't wait to see the tutorial for the flowers.


I don't know what browser you use, but I use Firefox. It has a built-in spell check and underlines misspelled words as you type in blog posts, forum posts - or blog comments! LOL! It's quite handy and a lifesaver for me.

Hope that helps!
