SSW 103 - Stamping Boutique

Today's Ramblings: How can it possibly be the last Wednesday of the month?!?!?! It is already 7 months until Christmas. I know, I know, I said the 'C' word - sorry!

We have had a few cooler days with a frost advisory last night. I had to bring in my flower planters as I didn't want them to catch a cold :) I laugh now, but on Sunday I thought I killed my $100 flowers to a very cold day - I almost had a heart attack - no worries though, they have bounced back with some sunshine.

Today's DT Challenge: A new Wednesday brings a new Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Our Sponsor:
The Stamping Boutique! Tracey will be giving one lucky winner 5 digis of their choice!


I used Tulip Fairy {found here}:

I paper pieced this whole image - it was a lot of work - but I trust my paper piecing skills better than my coloring skills :)
Card Ingredients:
The Stamping Boutique
digi; KI Memories papers; Recollections cardstock; Copics; Square Nestie; Stampendous! Pink Ultra Fine, Martha Stewart Golden Beryl and Turquoise glitters; turquoise floss; Dress It Up button.

Wow, the last thing you want is to loose $100's from flowers dying. I am glad they are ok. I sure love your card Deanne, I especially love how you popped your flowers. I love the whimsical feel to your card. Your papers are really fun.

It's okay for you to say that "C" word Deanne because you are likely getting close to having yours done!!! LOL! The weather here hasn't been the best either but thankfully there has been no threat of frost,rain is another story!!
Your card is beautiful! The colours and layers and all that glitter! Yummy! :) Tracy

Deanne, I love all the paper piecing on this card! It is so spectacular! I love all the glitter. I think you have lots more patience than I do for paper piecing. I glad you were able to save your $100 flower! Have a great weekend! Judi

Hi Deanne, sorry I'm so late posting my comment to you but I haven't been able to comment on blog since last Wednesday something wrong with blogger. So here goes....it's working.....fingers crossed.
I love love love your card, your paper piecing is stunning so are your colours. This was a perfect image to paper piece it looks spectacular. We must be the glitter girls this week!!! Did you put you glitter paper through the printer or did you add the glitter later? So glad you plants have survived, we have our spring bulbs out at the moment it is Autumn one of the warmest Autumn's in history for May approx 6-8c warmer than normal for this time of year. Poor flower plants don't know what season it is. Hope you get warmer weather soon.
Hugs
