The SUO challenge blog this week is for SPRING....and SPRING makes me think of flowers, and weddings, - so I made a wedding card with the botanical die set.  There are no limits to what you can do with this set, and I feel like I could make about 100 more cards with it and still not get tired of it!! I used shimmery white cardstock on this one and the shimmer black paper and then I used the Timeless Elegance dsp.  I think it all came together in an elegant way.  I was also designing this card with the color challenge colors, and though at first I was very stumped by Crisp Cantalope, Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake, it lent itself to the elegance of a wedding card in the end.  So many times the color combos that I struggle with I end up loving.  Colors I would never choose myself.  That's why I love being a part of the color challenge team at SCS.  Keeps me on my toes. :) Happy Tuesday everyone! Until next time, Karen

The SUO challenge this week is EASTER!!  I just love this little lamb, which symbolizes the lamb of GOD to me, the true meaning of Easter, that we have a Saviour who died on a cross for my sins....and your sins....a real cause for REJOICING~~  So this is my Easter wish for you - that you would KNOW this JESUS who died for you!!  Thank God for his indescribable gift!!~  And the card....I embossed the lamb on shimmery white cardstock and colored him with a white gel pen and then watercolored around him with a paint brush and stamp pads - so fun!!  An early HAPPY EASTER to all!! Oh how HE loves you, Oh how HE love me....Oh how He loves you and me!!! Until next time, Karen
