Flower power

I'm so "good" with planning my challenges that I always make them in the wrong order because I mix up the dates, lol. I'm almost finished with a card that is due on the 7:th, but I forgot the one for tomorrow, sigh. And I have a deadline for monday + a DT call I need to apply to. Instead I make cards waaay into the future (or a couple of days at least, but for me it's waaay into the future :D

Here's my card for the high hopes blog - a challenge called flower power. I wasn't sure if you actually have to use flowers or if this qualifies. I really hope it does because I'd love to win the stamp they are offering. I guess I could've glued on a flower somewhere, but I didn't think it would look good. Funny thing is that I actually started out with black/pink polkadot papers that match the sewn "ribbon" and took away everything except the ribbon part (it's not really a ribbon, but a striped patterned paper) I wanted to make the fold more interesting, but by doing that I had to rethink the "ribbon" part. I managed to save the idea I had from the start. Should've just gone with a simple fold instead of making it hard for myself, lol.

Ok, so it's so past my bedtime it's not even funny anymore. Enjoy! I think this card will be one of the ones I send in for the DT call. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Just the other day I managed to get over 10 followers (I have 11 now) Woohoo! I'm so happy about that. I'm actually a huge fan of one of them, so I feel humbled that she's following my little blog too.

More happy news: I found out today that I won another candy! More stamps coming my way...I wonder what the postman thinks, lol.

And finally: I have over 50 entries for my candy! Now I need to step on it and do some of the paper-things I planned to do. I have added some pics of a couple of the stuff I'll be sending. Hopefully they will make you drool instead of getting disappointed ;)
