Who's Up For a Challenge?

I was unable to post my cards yesterday, blogger was not cooperating with me so here is what was supposed to be for Monday. It's time now for another Roses on Paper Challenge!! Fellow DT member Lim, has set the theme of Love and Friendship. So, I chose to do a card for friendship. I had to create with colors that were not used for Valentines. This is the newest line of stamps that Summer has brought into the store called The Greeting Farm. I just adore these stamps!!! My fave!!! This set is called Pretty Head Anya and she has her cute little doggie friend with her. I used my favorite nestabilities to create the card and added some liquid pearls for accents! =)
My layout was inspired by a Mojo Monday sketch. I love this sketch, it really was so much fun to create with this set.
Here, I have also decided to create the inside of the card and I used all the same embellishments as I did on the front of the card.
Paper: Basic Grey Two Scoops, SU Black and White CS
Ink: Copics
Accessories: Prima Flowers,liquid pearls,nestabilities, dimensionals,martha stewart punch
For those of you who don't yet know the wonderful news about Summer and Roses on Paper, here it is! She has gotten Elisabeth Bell to create images for her and will be having them made into rubberstamps. This will be an exclusive line of stamps for Roses on Paper. There is a separate name for these stamps but you will have to wait for that until it gets closer to debut day!!!! How awesome and exciting is that??
This next challenge I have is for Alota Rubberstamps on Paper Craft Planet. This challenge is hosted by fellow DT member Birgit. She chose to do an inspiration challenge from this photo. So here is my card for the challenge.
I decided to go with the colors in the photo. I love this image, she could have also been used for Valentine's Day. Instead of coloring her clothes I paper pieced it as well as the umbrella.
Paper: SU DSP, Black and White CS
Ink: Copics
Accessories: SU Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Nestabilities

Here are some of the newest stamps that you can find at Alota Rubberstamps. There are 2 new sets for Easter and the first set can be found HERE. This next set can be found HERE. Aren't the bunnies cute!!=) Last but not least, a furniture set that can be found HERE.
Hope all of you have a great day and I'm sorry I have not been visiting you on your blogs the past couple of days. I am back to do so!! =)
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have time to participate in either one or both of these challenges!!
