Good Morning!
I'm still not feeling that great. Thinking I have a sinus infection so I may need to pop into the doctor today. Snickers has a groomer app't this morning but I'll try and squeeze in a little stamping time before that :)
The Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS yesterday was to Pile-Up those Embellishments. My first card is a SU! only. I got the colours from the Flower Fusion tin.
Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze and Choc Chip.
As you can see I layered the flowers and added a silver brad.
Stamps: Upsy Daisy; Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Choc chip, Pink pirouette, WW and Bella rose dp; Inks: Baja and Choc chip; Accessories: Scalloped edge punch, Silver Brads, Flower Fusions, Large Oval Punches, Dimensionals
I combined the WT challenge with Cindy's MFT sketch #67 that you can find in the MFT forum on SCS. This one layers the Ghost Flower with a Yellow Prima and two Blue Primas and also the Crystal Brad.
Stamps: MFT, Pocket Silhouettes; Cardstock: Soft Sky, PTI Lemon Tart, White and Crate Paper dp; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Oval nesties, Lemon Tart Ribbon, Ghost Flower, Primas, Crystal Brad, Word Window Punch, Ticket corner punch, Rhinestones, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
Be sure to stop back tomorrow! I have an extra fun challenge card to show you along with my other Saturday Challenge cards!

I hope you feel better soon. Something nasty is going around. Evan has RSV and is miserable.

Both of these cards are so cute. I haven't played with Upsy Daisy in a while. Great job piling up those accessories.
