The challenge on 365 Cards today was quite the challenge:

It's about dividing your card into quadrants - there should be 4 equal parts and each quadrant should contain one of the following:1 stamped sentiment,1 punched out item, 1 floral embellishment, 1 rhinestone.

I liked being "forced" to meet requirements, and I'm actually happy with the end result.
In the top left quadrant, I tried to make a flower using three crumpled circles. I saw it on someone else's blog, and it looked more "flowery" than mine ... but c'est la vie.

In the bottom right quadrant, I punched the black cardstock and layered it over patterned paper. Punching the stem and leaves was harder than I thought. Again, c'est la vie.

Supplies: CTMH Sasparilla, SU punches, CTMH clear sparkles and brad, CTMH Treasures stamp set, black and CTMH cocoa ink.


  1. Very cool card!! Lots of interest!!

  3. Great job on the challenge, love your color combo. Happy New Year!

  4. Gosh Maricar! I really like this card - the flowers were a surprise to me!! I've always used the punched piece, not the way you did it - and I really like the effect you got by putting the pattern paper behind the black! WAY COOL!

    Great work!

  5. This is very cool. I love the little flowers with the gem stems! Happy New Year!

  6. This is beautiful! I love the rich colors you used and of course I am always happy when I see a lollipop flower! Great job with the challenge!

  7. This is a stunning card, especially with your color choices!
