I won! I won! I won!!!!!!

Can you believe I won???? I can't...I don't win anything very often. but I won this from Jaime's blog:

She had a week long blog candy a while back and I won this set of Stampin' Up!'s Flower Fusion!!! WHOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!! I was so excited to win. let alone win something so awesome....I love these flowers!!!!! And you wanna know what???? They fit perfectly into Kristina Werner's color challenge today. Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron and Sahara Sand.

I was soooooo excited!!!!!!

Anyway....Here is what I did: (sorry the card look crooked......)

Kristina's cards are so "clean and fresh." She has inspired me to "clean up my act."

Card base is Sahara Sand. My sentiment is from All in a Row inked in wild wasabi. I used my stamp a ma jig to position it. The background panel is pumpkin pie stamped with polka dot background stamp. I rounded the two bottom corners and all four card base corners with my 3/16th inch corner rounder. I cut a slit in the fold of the card to slip the pumpkin pie striped grosgrain ribbon through and tied it in a simple knot. I layered a wild wasabi scalloped circle with a so saffron 1 3/8 inch circle and a pumpkin pie felt flower from my new flower fusion flower tin!!!!! I really do love these flowers! I adhered those layers together with a brad out of the ice collection of circle rhinestone brads. Bling and felt all together......sweet harmony!

What do you think? I must say...I really like it. It is so fresh from my normal water coloring and sponging. I like to get myself out of a rut and go a total new direction with my creations.....challenge yourself to do the same thing.....I dare ya!
