Tulip Bouquet

Today I am posting my card for our Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 40th month of de-stashing-we are into our 4th year of our challenges. 

The premise is to create a card or something else that uses only items that are in your own stamp room--nothing new is to be purchased.  The hostess each month posts their challenge to the group. Each person in the group creates their card with their own image, their own papers, their own embellishments with their own supplies--using up items from their own stash!  The card can be for any occasion and each person is encouraged to send the card on its way to someone so it can be admired.  It is a way for us to step out of the box a bit and create something that follows a challenge--isn't that what a challenge is supposed to be.  And--no money is spent as all items are to be already available in each of own stamping spaces.

Joyce posted our April challenge--Make a card using one of your floral stamps that has never been used yet and for a bonus, send it out to someone to say you are thinking of them.

I picked up a Simon Says Stamp set I got last year called Sketch Tulip Bouquet and it was not inked yet!  I colored the image with my Copic Sketch Markers.  It is a large image so I die cut a Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Frame.  Some pink pearls are the embellishment.

Here is the inside of my card:

If you check some of the blogs on my sidebar, you may find others who have posted their cards in the next few days.  There may be more posted in the thread on SCS, so you might want to check out the link here.  We also have a keyword for the SCS Gallery--it is CYSAPR.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.  They probably will be posted today or in the next few days.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I know I am excited to check out what my other hoarders, I mean stash reducers have made!  Thanks for stopping by today!  For May, Sue is up.  Be sure to check back to see what we create!
