Flowers for You! Challenge #2 by 4 Crafty Chicks :)

Howdy Crafters!!! Happy Thursday Morning!!! I am soooo excited this morning, it will be our very first announcement of our Golden Egg Awards! I loved all of the creations that everyone made last week and it was so much fun visiting all of your blogs (they all rock). Thanks so much to all the people who played and to our followers you made this a super start for the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Blog.

This has been a crazy week...we have been doing reno's in our basement, back to school, tryouts for sports and registration for sports so the week has flown bye way to fast. The best part has been taking the time to create this card for you!

Are you up for another challenge from the 4 Crafty Chicks? Our Crafty Chick Melissa is putting us to the test with a color challenge! Thanks chickie for the awesome colors. These colors are very versatile and were so much fun to work with. Our Challenges run from Thurday to Tuesday ending at Midnight MST. For those of you who are posting to a gallery use the key words of 4CCC-2.

The girls from Sweet Sketch Wednesday have an awesome sketch...thanks a million for an amazing inspiration girls.
Here is my card for our color challenge.
If I was to make the card again I would use old olive ribbon.
Recipe: Stamp: Because I Care (SU); Paper: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Brights Designer Series Stack Pack and Whisper White; Ink: Versa Fine Black; Accessories: Melon Mambo and Old olive markers; Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon, Swiss Dots Folder, paper priercer, handmade flowers, brads (SU), Large Circle and Small Scalloped Spellbinders and dimensionals, clear embossing powder
How is your week going? Today, I will be trying to organzing some rooms, but I am hoping to make some time to craft. I will be looking to seeing your creations and can't wait to visit your blogs some more. Don't forget to share some love with the other DT's.
Wishing you all a totally fabby day and wishing the crafting angles smile on you this week! Happy Crafting.
