Scrapbox Challenge for Week of 9-25-09

Wanda of Wanda's Crafts is running a Sunday Scrapbox Challenge.  Basically, you use your scraps and create something from them.  Here is mine.  I am not totally satisfied with the results because my stamping skills has a lot to be desired.  I need to start reading stamping tutorials.  I had left over supplies from Cards Magazine Card Kit of the Month and put this card together.  I used some punch out flowers, flower stamps, left over paper, silk like flower with a tag and brad.  The tag reads "treasured friend".

Birthday Card For My Mom

Good morning everyone. 
I just created a birthday card for my mom.  I used both the cuttlebug and Cricut Expressions.  I first embossed the center piece with the swirls embossing folder.  Then I used chalk to color and bring out the embossed image.  I actually used 3 colors in attempt to make it sort of gradient like. 
For the strip of purple paper I used fancy scallop cutting sissors and heat embossed the words "Happy Birthday with clear embossing powder.  Next I used my Cricut with Doodlooms cart to make the flowers and their shadows.  Lastly, I glued a rinestone on each flower in the center.

Thanks for Looking
