New Sweet Stampin Challenge

Hello from Alaska! It is hardly summer here, but I still have seen the sun in the last few days! And a few days ago I went on a hike (so glad to get out and enjoy nature!) And here is some pics from the hike:

 It wasn't the sunniest day, but I still had a blast! It was a little muddy (I was soaked by the time I got home...LOL) and I was so tired afterwards. The walk was beautiful and was good exercise for me!!!

Okay, okay, enough about nature... Time to get back to cards....LOL. Anyways.... over at Sweet Stampin', er have another great and amazing challenge for you this week. And is happens to be....

Being a little unusual myself (who isn't???) I had so much fun thinking outside the box for this challenge. And with my mojo going crazy with all the fun, this is what I came up with!

Okay, so this card looks like any normal usual card, but the unusual thing about it is that the flower is actually made out of....  PARTY FAVOR BAGS! I thought it would make the perfect little flower. And the other unusual thing about my card is that the "paper" that my sentiment is stamped on is actually...... A PAPER PLATE! I cut it out with my Cuttlebug and Glimmer Misted it to make it SPARKLY! I loved to brightness of the colors I couldn't stop and the image, so I incorporated the same bright and cheerful colors into my paper using these amazing Prima papers.

I also did this card for a challenge on:
Stamps: Mo's Digital Pencil, Verve
Paper: Prima, SU! 
Other: Copcis, Nestabilites, Cuttlebug, Glimmer Mists, 
Party bag and plate, Basics Rhinestones, Memento Inks

Make sure you go see all the other girls card for this challenge.
