A Challenge

In more than one way! lol

This week has been a challenge - lots going on, and more to come!

Stamping this week has been a challenge.
I made a card that just did NOT turn out right. I *might* show you someday. ;-)

I decided to participate in a stamping-related challenge at SCS, hoping to aid my efforts.  It was a sketch challenge, which doesn't always work for me. ;-b 

Thankfully, I knew what stamp I wanted to use on this card for Grandma's Birthday (other grandma).

Here's the sketch:

And here's what I did with it:

She's always helping us out with our yards, loves flowers, and a ton of other plants in God's creation (well, except for weeds - wink).

I stamped the flower from "Friends 24-7" onto Very Vanilla, then colored in with my aquapainter and ink pad lids. :) The flowered paper is from the same pack I used on my other grandma's card (Parisian Breeze).

Well, what do you think?  I'd love to hear/read! :)

The Small Print (All Stampin' Up)
Stamps: Friends 24-7
