Calling All Sistahs June Challenge

It is the 18th of the month and that means a new challenge at

This months inspiration photo is just too fun:

I spy with my little eye....Red, Blue, Pink, Purple, woodgrain & metallic on the paintbrush handles.

Using the Pretty Posies stamp and matching dies, I created a few flowers to run across my card.
Flowers were colored with Spectrum Noir markers and little glass beads for the centers.

The leaves were stamped, colored, die cut then snipped into strips for added interest.

The top of the card is Bronze Metallic cardstock that has been embossed with a scoring board, then a thumb tack was used to poke holes. 
I like how it mimics the paintbrush handles. :) 

The sentiment is stamped unto an adorable tag from the Tag Buddies die set.
Some flicked paint on the background and Lime string for the bow.

I hope you will join us this month at 

You know you always need to make Encouragement cards for someone, you might as well have a few in your stash and play along.
Did I mention prizes?!?

I cannot tell you how much I love your card, Penny. I'm smitten with the whitewashed wood look. :) And you paintbrush handle topper? PURE GENIUS!
