Fabulous Florets

I played along this week with the Nacho Average Challenge #53.  I have to give a shout out to Yapha Mason.  She is on the design team for these challenges.  I have been watching Yapha's blog for several months.  She kept doing all different challenges.  I finally had to try it. So Yapha, thank you for inspiring me to give it a try.

Here is the design for the challenge:

Here is my card:

Because the sketch was clean, I kept my card design simple.  That is part of the fun of a
challenge sketch.  You start with the sketch and from there the design choices are
completely yours.  Everyone's card will look different.  There are endless possibilities
from one sketch.

Stamp Set:  Fabulous Florets
Ink:  Wisteria Wonder
Paper:  Wisteria Wonder, Crushed Curry Print (Sweater Weather), Whisper White
Embossing Folder:  Perfect Polka Dots
Linen Thread
Designer Buttons


  1. Great card, Tina!! I am so glad that you played along! Excellent job with the sketch!! I love the button, it's such a sweet touch. I hope that you will keep playing, too!

  2. Such a sweet card. Love the addition of the coordinating button and linen thread.

  3. I'm going to sound like a copy cat, but I love the button, too!! How do you tie such a cute bow?!!! :-) Love your card, and so glad Yapha introduced you to our challenges--sure hope you'll play along again!!
