Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge 13

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. The weather was beautiful here in New England. I gardened a lot of the weekend so I decided to create a card with a garden theme.
Being Tuesday it is time for another great challenge at
All the cards were wonderful last week for the sketch challenge, I enjoyed seeing them all very much. This week is challenge #13 and it is a color challenge blue, pink, and yellow. Aren't those great Spring colors! Make those the main colors on your creation and of course don't forget to use Basic Grey paper on your creation also. This is a really fun and easy challenge this week so come play with us. We will be picking 3 cards for the TOP 3 of the week and they will get a blinky to display proudly on their blog. That could be you! I can't wait to see what you create and good luck!
Just in case you need some inspiration the ladies have created some extra special cards this week so check them out and let them know what you think

I just love Sugar Nellie stamps so I decided that I would use one for the challenge this week. When I opened up to them I realized that I had never inked up this stamp so it was like having something brand new to play with! I tend to buy even when I don't need anything new I just want something new that I see.

Here are some other wonderful challenges that fit my card

Sketch and Stash Challenge 36-This is a great sketch to play with and my new stash is the Sugar Nellie stamp and the yellow swirl ribbon that I got at my LSS this past weekend!

One Stop Craft Challenge #82-This challenge is to use swirls and pearls on your creation. I have swirls behind the image, my ribbon is swirled, and I my swirl punch to make some swirl embellishments, I even swirled the pearl strand. The pearls are all over my card because I love using pearls.

Oh Alice... Challenge Chapter 15-This is a new challenge for me and what a fun one it is. Their challenge this week is "SWIRLS". I love playing along with new challenges!

Stamp Dreams (StempelTräume) Challenge #33-This is also a new challenge for me this week. Their challenge is also to use swirls on your creation. I am playing along with this challenge because my sister Peggy is one of the DTs and I loved her card that she created for "swirls"!

One Stitch At A Time Challenge 15-This challenge is to use something new. I have two new items, my Sugar Nellie stamp and my yellow swirl ribbon (I bought lots of different colors of this pretty ribbon).

Crafty Creations Challenge 69-The challenge this week is to use your Favorite stamp. I don't think I have one favorite stamp but my favorite stamp company is Sugar Nellie. I have so many favs of theseI guess that is why I seem to own so many!

Sweet Stampin Challenge-This is a great challenge "Pimp Your Card" add lots of bling, embellishments, ribbons, the sky's the limit! How much fun is that!!!

Cupcake Craft Challenge 93-This challenge this week is "summer delights". One of my favorite summer enjoyments is working in my garden or creating a garden card!
