How's your Saturday shaping up?

Mine is shaping up nicely with Stampendous on the last Saturday of their March shaped card challenge.  This was a fun challenge! I'm so appreciative of the invitation to play along with such awesome talent as the Stampendous Design Team.  For my card I used the SSC1112-R Daisy Thanks Perfectly Clear™ Stamps set.  I'm a huge fan of daisies even though I colored these to look like Black-eyed Susans.  This is a sweet set with two simple sentiments.

I created my easel card by cutting out three pieces of Bazzill using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 10 die.  I used the next to the largest die for my basic card and two of the smaller sizes for my sentiment.  I stamped my images on Neenah and colored them with Copics.  I cut out my flowers and layered them on the Bazzill pieces I had already scored and put together.  I added my single daisy head on the base to act as my stopper.  I layered my sentiment, added ribbon accents and pop-dotted it to the front of my card.  I also added a little Glossy Accents to my ladybug to give her a little shine.  It's really just a simple little card to wish you all a happy day!

This is my card while lying flat.  Below are two shots of it opened into the easel position.  I love how it turned out.  I know this set will get plenty of use by me as it's definitely a favorite! 

Here are the links for each of the team players  and a couple of guests playing along this week:

Stampendous would love for you to play along with this challenge and there's still time to enter your own shaped card.  You still have until April 5, 2012 at 11:00 PM EST to play.  All you have to do is link your creation to the Inlinkz on the Stampendous Impressions blog post for the March challenge.  You don't have to use Stampendous products to play, however, they would love to see you use their products.  As an added incentive for playing along, one very lucky participant, drawn at random, of course, will receive this gorgeous stamp set, Cling Jumbo Hollyhock.

Please keep in mind that due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.   I do hope you will play along with us.  I'm a firm believer in the more the merrier!  I can't wait to see what you come up with.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look and I hope to see you again soon!
