Sweet Dreamers Challenge Stylin'

Welcome Friends!

The Sweet Dreamers Blog Group has posted a new challenge for us (thank you, Marti). Challenges are not my forte but I always want to try them. I just have a hard time with someone else's vision for some reason. I need to work on that!!

I started with a purple card base. I then layered 1" x 4 1/4" bands of metallic lavender card stock. I ran these bands through the Cuttlebug in the Bloom Dots folder to add a little texture. Next I cut the scalloped circles with my Nesties and stamped the sentiment on the smaller one. I added dots on the scallops with a lavender souffle pen. I adhered these circles with dimensionals. I punched two sizes of blossoms out of white card stock colored with Brilliance ink. I used rhinestone brads for the centers and adhered them with glue dots. Sorry the pic is a little dark on one side. I was trying out a new lighting system and obviously I had the wrong angle somewhere.

Hope you like my attempt at this challenge and you will stop by again soon!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
