Color Challenge

This week over at CR84FN is a beautiful color challenge.  Here is the inspiration image:

Think of all the possibilities......I know that I had so many ideas running through my head it took me over two hours to finally get this card finished. So on to the card.  All the paper is digital.  The printed paper is a freebie I got from Melstampz.  And the Pink is from TwoPeas, its by  DRD~Happy together solid paperpack.  To make the lace trim I used a Martha Stewart punch.  The Happy Mothers Day sentiment is from CTMH.  The ribbon and pearls are also from CTMH.  

 These fantastic flowers I made from scraps of the pink paper.  I followed a ribbon flower tutorial but used the scrap paper instead.  Make sure that if you try this to break down the paper fibers.  I also used some Stickles on them to give them a little shine.

Thanks so stopping in and taking a look.  Have a great weekend, I am off to clean house.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Princess Crowns

I have been MIA for far too ling now, but I have still been crafting away.  I will start uploading all of my newest creations.  For now I have these cute Princess crowns.  My daughter has requested a princess birthday, so when I started to look for stuff for her party I found it was all incredibly expensive.  So I turned to the internet and found multiple ideas on how to make tiaras.  Most of them were paper, but I did find this site called Thread Bangers  .  The tutorial is incredibly easy to follow, and the cost to make these is very minimal.  If I had to price out one of these cute crowns I would say maybe $0.50 tops.  I got cheap head bands, 14 for $10.  I got a bucket of beads from our local craft store for $7 and the floral wire was $3.  I have tons of bead and wire and head bands left over.  So here is the first of multiple "things" that I am doing for my daughters birthday.  I will post more as I get them finished.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
