Pickin' Posies, Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge #7

It is hard to believe that it is Tuesday already and time for another challenge for Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. The challenge this week is a fun and easy one! We are challenging you to use
Three Embellishments
and as always Basic Grey Paper

I told you it was easy so dig out those embellishments that you have and play along with us. I used some of my most favorite embellishments on this card, polka dotted ribbon, decorative pins, brads and flowers. Now show us what you used!!!

We have a fantastic sponsor this week Stamp N Plus Scrap N. They have so many wonderful rubber stamps to choose from, there is something for every stamp lovers taste. The cutie that I used on my card was graciously given to me to use this week. Be sure to check out all the other cards created by the DTs to see what they created with these wonderful stamps! Stamp N Plus Scrap N is also having a blog hop right now so check it out here. The prize that they are giving to one lucky winner is some of their wonderful unmounted rubber stamps.

Check out what the other talented DTs have done this week

These are some other fantastic challenges that fit my card

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #8-a wonderful and fun sketch

Stampin' For the Weekend Challenge-Ribbons and bows something every creation should have!

Stamp Something Challenge-Layers Challenge, I love lots of layers!

Pile It On Challenge #15-Is It Spring? Not sure about here in New England!

Cute Card Thursday Challenge-Touchy Feely, I have lots silky ribbon, raised embossing, soft flowers, smooth pearl hearts with sharp points, and bumpy scalloped edges.

Crafty Ann's Challenge #12-Let the Sunshine In is their challenge. What needs more sunshine than flowers and kids playing in the garden!

Creative Belli Challenge #89-die Cut Shapes Challenge, I used a regular oval, a deckle oval, and a scalloped oval die cut on my card.

Critter Sketch Challenge Week #10-This is a new challenge for me. You are to use 10 elements for your creation. I used 3 different CS, 3 different DPs, 6 flowers, 2 heart pins, 1 ribbon, 4 brads, I guess I nevered paid attention to how much I use on a card!

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #19-Great Challenge, Desert Island! If you were marooned on a desert island want would you want with you. I would want a picture of my family, a bottle of wine and a glass to drink it in, chocolate, and my favorite stamping stuff like CS in lots of colors, Basic Grey x6 packs so I could make miss you and thank you cards(for when I am rescued), lots of cute already stamped and digi images to conserve space, MY COPICS I don't leave home without them, my cuttlebug and folders, a good cutter, tape gun with lots of extra tape in case sand sticks to it, pop dots, mini glue dots, my Nesties couldn't live without them, and lots of my fav embellishments, ribbons, brads, sticker pearls in lots of colors, bling, craft flowers, Stickles, white Signo pen, punches 5 0r 6 of them, and glitter pens. These are my MUST HAVES and used most of them on this card! After making this list I realized being marooned on a desert island must be like going on a stamping weekend far from home and the car is full and you can't bring everything you think you can't live without !!!!!

Supplies Stamps: Stamp N Plus Scrap N, Cats Pajamas(saying)

Papers: DP Basic Grey, SU Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery CS, Papertrey White CS

Inks: Copics, Memento Black

Accessories: Nesties, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, SU Leaf Punch, MS Lace Border Punch, SU Ticket Punch, Prima Flowers, Michaels Ribbon, White Gel Pen, JoAnns Heart Pins and Misc Brads
