Giving Shelter by Rachelle Anne Miller / Stampavie Stamps

I think my"mojo " took a vacation but it has finally returned with a three-fer! The challenge over at Roses On Paper is flowers and an added twist is you are also suppose to combine the challenge with at least one other challenge. You must also use a Magnolia, Rachelle Anne Miller, Sarah Kay or Greeting Farm image. I chose to use a Rachelle Anne Miller image called "Giving Shelter". I love this image and how fun it is to color it with a bit of whimsy.

As luck would have it the current challenge at Stampavie is also flowers and the use of a Stampavie image which includes the Rachelle Anne Miller line. That brings me to challenge #3 which is a sketch that I myself created. Some of you might recognize it from a few posts ago. Each week on the CK/ Paper Crafts message board we take turns hosting challenges to keep our mojo going. This past week was my turn to host a sketch challenge. I chose to use this sketch that I had created last month when needing a layout for a card I was making for another challenge. I have had a lot of fun with this sketch and have really enjoyed seeing what others have created using it. You can find the sketch HERE. For the flower part of the challenge, I have the flower in the image which I cut out and pop dotted for added dimension. I embossed the pink and yellow circles with a floral print using a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and I made two flowers to pop dot on by using the medium and large Paper Shapers Retro Flower Punches.
