Be Yourself and Thanks a Bunch

I am loving the sketches this week!  Here again is the sketch from Just Add Ink:
The color challenge from Loonie Stampers:

For my card I kept it very simple - no sewing or ribbon - so it fits the Stampin' Royalty challenge!  I used my Forever Young Cricut Cartridge along with some CTMH papers and stamp.  The bling is Kaiser Craft, and this fits the ABC challenge - sparkle.  I think this would make a great card for a teen.


The sketch again from Stamping 411:
The inspiration again from Wee memories, I was inspired by the flowers in the boot on the top row.


This is your first sneaky peek at some new CTMH papers coming out in the Summer Idea book (available May 2010), LOVE these papers, my absolute favorite in the book and oh, the stamps that coordinate - wow!  For this card I used some stamps that are already available, Springtime (boots); Thank you; and Flower Pot (flowers - April SOTM).  I colored the flowers with copics, and the top boot is on foam strips.  It is hard to tell but the base is textured cardstock. Another entry into the Raise the Bar challenge.
