Good Morning to everyone this cold Sunday Morning!! This has been a very devastating week for everyone. The Boston Marathon was a severe tragedy that will never be forgotten. Then the explosion in Texas. My thoughts and prayers go out all the victims and their family.

I do hope that you found some good things to do this week and weekend. I have decided to start a little of my spring cleaning. I can only get so much done at a time because I have problems with my lowers back. I have had many injections but they only last temporarily. I will get it done though. I'm loosing my help. My middle child is hardly ever here. I think he is itching to move but can't right now. My youngest is so focused on her sports and studies that I don't make her do a whole lot. She needs to enjoy her teenage years before she faces that big world out there.

Our sponsor is one that has many beautiful images. They are Milk Coffee Stamps. Here's their badge and you can see some of their digital stamps.

This week our theme is "Make Your Own Flowers." I wanted to make a little different flower and Edwina, one of gifted ladies on our design team, did a tutorial on making your own flowers. So I made mine something similar like hers. Thank You Edwina for the tutorial. The image that I used from Milk Coffee Stamps is called Tiffany in Roses Bridal Gown. I don't know about bridal gowns because I eloped. Doesn't matter if you have a huge wedding or something real little. I did put my color ideas in it. I have seen gowns but wouldn't know the fancy things that goes on them. Here is the prize that they are offering our winner this week

3 Digital Stamps
Of The
Winner's Choice

So here is my card that has made my flower on and Tiffany with her roses.

I hope you can see the detail of the picture. If I could get it any larger on here I would. On my handmade flower I used two different colors of ribbon. One is a glitter ribbon with all kinds of colors and then a cream color ribbon. The little dots on the flower are different colored pearls. Here are the whole list of things I used on this card.
Cardstock - Close To My Heart & DCWV
Rings Punch - Martha Stewart Crafts (Around The Page Punch)
Pearls On Dress - The Paper Studio
Pearls On Flower - Close To My Heart
Ribbon - From My Stash
Big Pearl On Middle of The Flower - Dress It Up
Colored Pencils
Colored Markers
Well that was one of my favorite cards to work on. I like to work with detail some times. You really have to be in the mood for alot of detail. Don't forget to enter your card or project over at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Well hope the rest of your Sunday is a good one and I will be back with another great challenge for you.
