It's Sunday, so that means TWO challenges :)

Good Morning to my lovely peeps!

Hope you have enjoyed your weekend so far! Every Sunday we have TWO challenges:

The first up is Sentimental Sundays Challenge #67 and the theme this week is 'Flowers'

Now this is your chance to use ALL of your Wild Orchid flowers and go CRAZY!! Lol!

But I have instead gone for a simple monochromatic look which I find also very elegent!

The image is a white foam stamp I have had for ages but hardly ever used, the leafy border is a tiny Clarity Stamps stamp, the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

It is hard to see in the photo but I made a layer for the image from gold heat embossing and then matted that layer on to a layer I distressed in Walnut Stain, as are the leaves and image. The gold line borders are peel offs and I matted the sentiment onto gold mirri card.

The next challenge for today is the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #122 which is sponsered by DRS Designs...

The Cupcake Inspiration this week is:

Here is my interpretation:

The pink is not showing so well in this photo but it is alot darker in real life :)

The image is from DRS Designs and I made the background layers: The base layer has been distressed with Walnut Stain and gold embossed with my leafy border stamp with touches of Gold Stickles here and there, the next layer has been lightly distressed with Walnut Stain and stamped and embossed with a Dawn Bibby flower stamp in pink and blue in Brilliance Dew Drop inks, which I then used water and brush to colour in the flowers with the same inks and added stickles to. The flip flops have coloured with Prisma pencils and blended with Sansador, the blue flowers have been glazed with glossy accents and I used gold embossing powder again for the smaller details. The sentiment is from Whinsy Stamps and I used my nestie circle and eyelet circle.

So, I hope I have inspired you to come and play along with these two fabby challenges which both end Midnight EST on Saturday 13th August.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and I hope you will join me again for TWO more challenges on Tuesday for the Teddy Bo Challenge and new releases and Anything Goes challenge:)
