Clearly Inspired Challenge #6 (Yeah! This one made top 5!!)

Hello Friends! Today I am sharing with you my submission for this week's Clearly Inspired Challenge, a Clear Dollar Stamps challenge meant to inspire and stretch our creativity. If you have yet to check it out, click the CIC link and go have a great time!

This time the challenge is to use: Red, White & Black with an alternate Pink.
Sounds fun, right? Perfect to get you started on your Valentine's projects.
I had the hardest time with this though! It was just one of "those days" in the craft room, I actually stamped the flower 5 times, colored it 5 times and ended up with just one. It took me two days of starting and walking away before I finally got it finished. Phew .. this was a hard one for me! But, in the end, I think it turned out okay. I hope you like it as well!

I do love it, Christi. I love how your embossed dots go with the dots on the dp. . .just beautiful. And your coloring is fabulous as always! Isn't it funny how we have something in mind, walk away about 20 times in one day, and then end up with something that we really like. All that work, and a wonderful end result ;D

It certainly doesn't show, Christi, that you had trouble finishing this card, but I know what you mean.
It turned out to be a beautiful card, love how you used the flower.
Take care, Anja
