2's and Color challenges

Hello, hope everyone's weekend was just wonderful! I know that mine sure was. I was finally sunny and warm yesterday, so my daughter and I played at the park most of the day.
Okay so on to the post. Over at the Crafty Sentiments blog they have a color challenge going on. Light blue, olive and tan. And over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog they have a 2's challenge going on. 2 ribbons, 2 buttons and 2 dsp.

On this card I used Flopsy with a flower, thanks to winning the first challenge over at Crafty Sentiments Digis blog. Oh by the way I so love Flopsy! I colored him with Close to My Heart water pencils the used my blending pen to soften the image. I use olive and desert sand card stock form Close to My Heart. The light blue dsp is from topstich paper pack from CTMH, and the other dsp is just a scrap from all those pieces hidden away in stash. ( I do love to horde my paper. LOL ) I used a Martha Stewart punch on the green strip in side. I also made the two flowers using the tutorial I talked about a couple posts back. The two little heart buttons are also from CTMH.
I have to say that I love easel cards. They are the nicest card to display and the easiest. They are super fun to make as well. There is a great tutorial over a Split Coast Stamper. Have a great evening! Thanks for stopping in!
