Purple buzzilion

Hello, have you ever made a card and someone saw it and said "can you make me one, but with these colors?" LOL well that is what happened to my last card. A friend of mine at work wanted one like it but purple. Ok I can do that. And then it turns out just a little better than the last one with more planning, because there are no mistakes in card making just happy little accidents.

Well here is my card, a lot like the last one just different colors and linking up to different challenges.  Life is a challenge sometimes. I prayed and asked God to give "murphy" a vacation, but it seems he just simply tied his hands behind his back. But that is ok because God is by my side and I can handle anything with HIM beside me. Well the challenges in life I do like are card making and I found some fun ones to link up to with this card.
The stamp is from Craft lounge. I don't think they are in business any longer but I love this stamp set. It is called spring sketches. They are big and bold ( which is part of a challenge)  I stamped the image in Versafine ink onyx black. After die cutting my card Sizzix Card square flip die (which is part of a challenge ). I love it. It is so easy and it is only one piece of paper but looks very layered. 

My little bee is from stamping up.. I just love his traveling  (which is part of a challenge) little tail message. "YOU ARE ONE IN A BUZZILLION" Which the person this card is going to is. 

I stamped what is probably the inside of the card with Thanks for being wonderful you (another challenge) 

I took my wink of stella pen and some distress ink in DUSYT CONCORD and MUSTARD SEED which are opposite colors (and part of a challenge) 

Look at that shine

I love how the two flowers lined up so there are actually two colored flowers

Big bold and beautiful is the challenge at Shopping our stash, which is just AWESOME I think because what better place to shop?

OPOSITE color on the color wheel is the challenge at Less is more, They always have such fun challenges and really stretch my card making.

TRAVEL  is the theme at Curtain call, Bee's travel don't they... on and on and on to different flowers

Appreciation/ Thank you is the challenge at The pink Elephant.. how cute is that little elephant and so fancy too with her polkadot ears and her bow

Die cutting is the theme.. at Happy little stampers... I just love that title because I am a happiest when I am stamping. 

                                                                  Hope you enjoyed

 And happy MOTHER's day if you are a mother in any kind of way, if I don't see you before then!


  1. Love the little trail from the bee as the sentiment, and just the one coloured flower is a great idea.
