Free For All Friday!

Hello all! How's life in your neck of the woods? I hope really grand. I was busy working today (I work from home and am kind of my own boss) and got literally stuck in my work. Well, instead of trudging through, I decided to play hookie and ..... CREATE! Isn't that a fabulous idea??? ;-) I say yes!

It's been forever since I've been able to play along in a Splitcoaststamper's Challenge -- so with my decision to skip out on work for a bit, I went over there was a fun challenge calling my name! This week the Free 4 All challenge is to use a layer on top of another layer of the same color. So... here goes my creation!

I just love the look of white on white and especially when the second layer is full of texture. So.... that's why I picked up this Stampin' Up embossing folder called Arrows.


This card literally took nothing to create -- I had the mini Azaleas colored already and so, I merely cut them out, added some glitter glue for a little razzle dazzle and then assembled them in layers (using foam tape on the top flower) to give it some extra pop. The Copic Markers I used were R0000, R01, R30, R32 and R35. The leaves were G20, G40, G43 and G46. The stamps are from Power Poppy's Azalea set and the sentiment is from the Good Thinking: Renewal set -- also from Power Poppy. I added the sentiment on a patterned paper die cut (paper is from Bo Bunny) and almost done! I added some Sea Moss Seam Binding Ribbon (from Hug Snug) and added a little bling thanks to Queen and Co.

And... here's a close up!



And that, my friends is it! Want to check out the challenge for yourself? Just click HERE for the F4A215 Challenge!
