Hello and welcome back to my blog! I am having too much fun with my stamping lately! Today, I attempted something new. I am trying to use something NOT meant for my cardmaking and altering it to suit my needs. I found some tissue paper that a purchased item was wrapped in at the dollar store! I crumpled it more and "antiqued" it with brown ink and a sponge. Then, I punched photo corners out of gold dsp. I attached 3 flowers in layers with a brad. I used 3 gold brads on one corner. Pooh is a digital image I got from a free coloring sheet site (my trick for when I need an image!) I colored him with watercolor pencils. The sentiment is a sticker I found in my stash and stuck in a bookplate. Okay...this card fits the following challenges:

Everybody Art Challenge: Butterfly
Pile It On: 3 Flowers
Simon Says: Distress
High Hopes Challenge: Gold
Kaboodle Doodles: Digital Image
Stamptacular Sunday: Child's Play (Pooh is a children's character...stretch???)
The Pink Elephant: 3 Flowers, 1 Brad (in the flower) DSP.
My Time to Craft: Forgotten Item from your Stash
