SUO Challenges 100!

I have had a very busy couple of weeks with my move and I decided to take Andrew’s very sage advice and relax tonight. I need to accept that things take time and there is nothing saying that I need to have everything done in 4 days! My friend Heather came by and we had a few glasses of wine, a much needed reprieve from unpacking and organizing! I did get some crafty time in and that always makes my day a little better. Work was very busy today and I definitely needed to relax and unwind. Some wine with a friend is always a good way to end a Monday wouldn’t you agree?!

It’s Tuesday and that means there are new weekly deals from Stampin’ Up!

Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our 100th challenge! For this challenge you can go back through challenges 1 through 99 and pick you favorite. I went with #60, Glitter Galore! I definitely think that my card fits the challenge! The base of today’s card is Mossy Meadow Card Stock. For background I used a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper, glitter… check! A strip of paper from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack is cut on an angle at the bottom and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flowers and leaves are from the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set, The leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow and the flowers in Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush. I used the Flower Fair Framelits to cut them out. The flowers are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves with SNAIL. My greeting is from the And Many More Stamp Set and is stamped in Strawberry Slush on Daffodil Delight, flagged and then tucked under the flowers. I put a Basic Jewel Rhinestone in the middle of each flower for some extra sparkle! So there you have my card for the 100th SUO Challenges challenge. I definitely think I fulfilled the glitter galore criteria! LOL! I hope you like the card and that you will take some time go and visit the blog to see what the other design team members choose for their favorite challenge. We would love to see what you choose too so make a project and enter it in the gallery! Thank you very much for coming by today and I wish you a very happy Tuesday! 🙂
