SCS FEATURED STAMPER CHALLENGE FS56 PETAL PUSHER

Today's Featured Stamper on SCS (FS56) is Mary, aka Petal Pusher on SCS. THIS is Mary's card I chose to case today, and HERE is Mary's SCS gallery. The things I changed from Mary's card include: a) different DP and colors, b) added paper piercing along the horizontal section and on the scallop medallion, c) my sentiment is below the main image, and d) I used the ticket corner punch on the Pretty In Pink CS bordering the main image.

I used my new Watercolor Crayons to color in the chick .... I just got them on Friday, and they were FREE! ... my Senior Supervisor promotion bonus from Stampin' Up! woohoo! The chick's shell is paper pieced from Spring Fling DP.

I'm not completely thrilled with the end result of this card, but it just felt good to be able to stamp, even if it wasn't my idea of the ideal stamping time ... I think I started this card around noon today, leaving it several times to do other things, coming back to it several times, and finally finishing it around 7:00 tonight ... lots of interruptions!
