Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge

Good Evening everyone ... I hope you've had a nice day!
The day is drawing to a close here in Ohio, USA but I wanted to quickly share a card with you that I created for the current challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs which is CELEBRATE.

I've really grown to love making homemade flowers for my cards and the Cheery Lynn Designs Build A Flower dies make it SO EASY to create beautiful, life like flowers out of paper!

Here's a list of Cheery Lynn Designs items used:
B187 - Build a Flower 2 die set
DL112 - Exotic Butterflies Small
B151 - Cuties 3
DL102 - French Pastry Doily
B211 - Happy Birthday

Other items used are:  DCWV design paper, Deep Purple cardstock, Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress ink, PunchBunch Flower Making Kit/black forming mat, Spellbinder Classic Circle die

Purple is my favorite color and I just love how this flower came together.  I hope you like it to!  

Here are a few other challenges I'd like to enter into:
Mygrafico Challenge - Anything Goes
CAS on Sunday - Butterflies
Catered Crop - Flower Power
Little Claire's - Cards with Folds
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes

Remember I said PURPLE was my favorite color!  Check out what my hubby got me for Valentine's Day!
Yep, a purple chair designed JUST FOR ME ... I'm short so I'm either having to sit on the edge of my seat or have my feet dangling ... NOT ANY MORE!!  LOL!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  
Until next time and as always . . .


  1. Very pretty card love the fold and the flower is beautiful .

  2. Fab card, lovely design and gorgeous purple flower. Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.


  3. WOW Darlene. A gorgeous card. Thanks for joining us at Red Carpet Studio


  4. This is lovely - thanks so much for linking up to CAS on Sunday. A CAS design is all about 'more is less', so for our challenge we would need to see more white space/less pattern/a less complicated layout/less embellishments (or whatever you think is making the design not CAS). Although this particular card doesn't meet our challenge guidelines, we are thrilled that you were inspired to create a project with and we hope you'll link up another project soon! Hugs

  5. Wow, such a stunning card you made, I love green and purple together! =)
    Hugs, Elenor
