Paper Players #81 and A La Card Monkey #94

Happy Wednesday Everyone!  I combined two challenges for today's card.  The theme at The Paper Players is flowers -- yea!  And over at A La Card Monkey, it's a sketch challenge plus a birthday theme.

Believe it or not, I designed this card around the piece of (retired) Baja Breeze ribbon I had cut for something else and then didn't use.  It's such a yummy color, and I knew I could depend on a piece of DSP from the Paisley Petals collection to coordinate beautifully.

I just got Flower Fest and the coordinating punches yesterday, so I was quick to bust them out and use them!  I thought this flower and punch somewhat echoed the shape of the flowers in the DSP.

Be sure you visit both challenge blogs and enjoy all the talented paper artists on each site.

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
