Addicted to Stamps Challenge #146

Hi everyone ~ It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps, and our theme is 'Anything Goes'...we are also having a Design Team Call!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is Stamplorations, and they are offering a $10.00 gift certificate as a prize!




I stamped the blooms from the PTI set called 'Just Smile' using my Hero Arts shadow inks. I created the grass by shading in below the flowers with light green colored pencils. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's 'Summertime Charm' stamp set, and the sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

__________________________________________


I was dying to ink up this cute little girl stamp from La-La-Land Crafts called Awareness Ribbon Marci to create a card for my mom. She has survived breast cancer twice, and I learned that National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual celebration that is held around the world on the first Sunday in June! 

Here is my 2nd card:




I colored Marci with Copic markers, added a sentiment from Avery Elle (discontinued) and brushed on a little bit of Wink of Stella clear glitter to her pink ribbon. A few soft pink pearls, and I was finished! Here is a close up of all that lovely sparkle:


So, that's it for me today...I hope you'll take the time to visit the Addicted to Stamps Blog and play along in this week's challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
