The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Happy 'Over the Hump Day' my fellow bloggers!
It's time once again for a challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters and today, my sistahs and I challenge you to . . .
use FLOWERS on your creations.
How easy and fun is that!
AND ... we have Shelly's Images as our sponsor!
Prize:  $9 gift voucher
 Shelly has generously shared various images with the team to use on their creations today.  Be sure to pop over to The Sisterhood and check out the fabulous cards by these talented ladies!  I chose to use the 'Hummingbird' image for my Double Z fold card creation.
Instructions for making a Double-Z card can also be found on Shelly's Images Blog this week.  After coloring the image for the inside of my card, I decided to scan it (too lazy to color it again, lol)  ... add a sentiment (.png sentiment image from Shelly's Images) over laid on the image  ... reprint it and use it again on the front.  I really love how this came together!
NOW, to address the issue of FLOWERS for this challenge, I not only have a FLOWER in the image but also FLOWERS on the background designer paper (paper pizazz) and two small flowers in the front corner (prima).  The only other addition to this creation is narrow, purple organza ribbon from JoAnn's.

I do hope you'll come join in our FLOWER sharing fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
See you there!


  1. This is lovely, love your choice of colours and papers and the digi is fabulous!

  2. Just gorgeous. Love the purple/green/pink colour combo. This will definitely cheer up someone special.

  3. Darlene...this is so pretty. I got to witness this card coming together...and even though it was quite a process...and you were a little frustrated that day...the outcome is STUNNING. ;)
    Great work!

  4. Wow, Love your card. I love all that white space around the image and sentiment. Plus the card all just really makes the image and sentiment pop. Gorgeous! :-)

  5. I have never tried a z fold, and yours is just wonderful. I especially love the way your sentiment is on top of your image! Looks like you had a wonderful Mother's Day touring Amish country, your pictures had me drooling, lol! Thank-you for stopping by my blog and your lovely comments, {Hugs} Barb.

  6. Absolutely love your card Darlene! I am a big hummingbird fanatic and you have coloured Shelly's image just beautifully! And the way you did the layout for the inside image is so very unique. Thanks for again sharing your wonderful talents.

    Hugs ~ Char
