Simply Papercraft #4 with Bugaboo Flowers

TGIF crafters! I have had a very nice week (it's Mother's Day week, after all!) with some great crafting time, and today I'm sharing a new card for Simply Papercraft. Our bi-weekly challenges are ALWAYS "Anything Goes" with an optional theme. I can NOT believe we are on challenge #4 already! Where did the time go?? This week's challenge is "Clean and Simple (CAS) and is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. As always, fantastic prizes are up for grabs! Free stamps? Yes please!



I used this absolutely gorgeous and elegant silhouette image called Dandelions and Butterflies. Now, hubs HATES the dandelions, and darling Son #2 loves to pick them and give to mama. But me, well, I just LOVE this image! (Anyway, someone tell hubs that yellow is pretty!). ;)


I think I did pretty well for our "Clean and Simple (CAS)" theme. Usually I can't stop adding stuff. But, a few spots of color on this lovely scene (couldn't resist!), some depth and dimension with foamies and embossing folder...and viola!

I have been playing around a bit with my photography for cards this week (and my photo editing!). What do you think? I'm having a bit of fun with it, but I'm feeling like there's definite improvement in the card's presentation!

Challenges for today:
Bugaboo Stamps - May Anything Goes
Verve Inspiration Challenge - May Flowers
Sisters of Craft - May Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - #243: Flowers for Her

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to link up your lovelies on the Simply Papercraft blog for your chance to win! Stamp happy!
