Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge #12

This week has flown by so fast. We are on the fast track at school to get everything done before the end of the school year. It sure does make my day busy! It is also Tuesday and that means time for another challenge at
We have a wonderful sponsor this week Stamponique. Their stamps are wild and fun. They have something for every kind of stamping style! They were gracious enough to give us an image of our choice to play with this week and you will love what the ladies came up with using these fantastic stamps.

Our Challenge this week is a great sketch challenge.
We would love to have you come play with us. All you need to do is follow the sketch, add your own style, and use Basic Grey paper on your creation, how easy is that!

I just love this flower girl, I just planted flowers out in my gardens and most of them were variegated this year so I decided to make here hair the same. I also thought her dress was made to be paper pieced. There was a flower on her dress but I decided to replace it with one of my own that I folded multiple times and glued then fluffed and stickled. Don't you love her wild shoes. This image was so much fun to play with!

Here are the fabulous creations from our talented inspiration team

We were also thrilled that the lovely ladies at Stamponique came to play with us this week so be sure to check out their creations at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.

Here are some other wonderful challenges that fit my card

Basic Grey Challenge Week 20-The challenge is to "punch it". I used my MS border punch and a photo corner punch.

Charisma Cardz Challenge #20-This is a 3D challenge. I have her paper pieced part of the dress popped at the bottom, and all the flowers on her dress and the card.

Crafty Ann's Challenge #15-The Challenge is to use lots of colour! I seem to have that covered, though these aren't my usual choice of colors.

Creative Belli Blog Challenge #91-This challenge is hole punches. The border punch has lots of small holes along the zigzag. My old item is the saying I used, bought some time ago and this is only the first or second time it has been inked up!

The Digi Doodle Shop Challenge #8-Sparkle, Glitter, Glitz is the challenge. I added Stickles to the flower on her dress and to all the roses for my sparkle!

Frosted Designs Challenge-This is a fun challenge because it is a shoe challenge! I just love the pink, polka dotted shoes she is wearing. Wouldn't every girl love a pair just like hers.

Papertake Weekly Challenge-This challenge this week is to say it with flowers. I love my Prima Roses and use them a lot on my creations.
