Time for a Card

I took time out from the beach this morning to make this card which will cover a few challenges that end tomorrow. I used a white card base on which I repeatedly stamped a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers'  "Happy Pansies" stamp set  as the background.  Stamped the pansy from the same set on to a scrap of pink CS and cut with Nesties scallop circle and pierced the edges. This I attached to a precut oval that was embossed. I highlighted the embossing and edge by wiping with a black ink pad (had no sponge). Used dimensionals to attach to the card. Added ribbon and a pink gem to center of flower.

Challenges:
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge: Use Black and White plus one color and piercing. Piercing around oval.
One Stop Craft Challenge: Make a Birthday Card.
 Crazy 4 Challenge: Use Dies on Card.
Our Creative Corner: Get Wordy! Use a sentiment stamp to create a background or layer on your card by stamping it repeatedly.
Lollipop Crafts:  Use Black, White,and a pop of color.
Charisma Cardz Challenges: Use black,white and one  other color.
Do You Stack Up Challenge: Anything Goes
Just heard we had another 10" of snow at home in Ohio.
Glad to still be here in Florida.
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa

I think you did a wonderful job with your repeat stamping for the background! And I feel honored that you took the day to spend paper crafting so you could enter our challenge over @ OCC, and not be at the beach! TFS
