Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

I have not had the opportunity to buy the new Kim Hughes stamps from her new brand line called Paper Smooches but man oh man do I want to. I'm saving up for a few lovely sets. Anywho, I found this challenge on her blog and decided to join. It is based off a picture she found on Etsy. So the challenge was to include some kind of wood texture, and the colors shown as well as pearls and such. Sort of a vintage feel. Because I don't have any of her recent stamps I had to pull out some oldies but goodies from CHF, this one is from the baby stamp set called 'Baby love'. I used a wood grain embossing folder on my cuttlebug and used a ginormous Marvy punch for the image. I also had some Making Memories pearl flowers that I hadn't used so I added them to the flowers as an accent. Hopefully this is what Kim was looking for :).

Unity July KOTM Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone, here is my card for the  Unity July KOTM Challenge .The challenge is the image on the left.

 I used the adorable lil bees and the saying is "we're better together'. I looked through my paper stack and noticed I hadn't used any of my awesome Bam Pop papers (http://bampop.com/), so that is the striped multi-colored paper in the back. I then used some red-orange textured paper with some EK knotted wood rub ons and some manly dark brads to add some accents. Fingers crossed for the $45 set (EEEK!!!) :) So here is the final product!! Thanks for stopping by!!
