Raise the Bar Challenge #6 - No Stamping Allowed!

Hello! This week's Raise the Bar challenge is simply "No Stamping", well, except for one sentiment. I really like making cards with images other than stamps, I think its a fun way to "think out of the box". I chose the adorable Sweet Pea felt flowers and Flower Fusion as my focal images. I was also inspired by the sketch at the Truly Scrumptious blog. I think the two challenges really worked well together.
Stamps: Trendy Trees (sentiment) SU
Paper: Sweet Pea dsp, Old Olive, Rose Red
Ink: Rose Red
Accessories/Tools: Corner Rounder, Modern Label Punch, Word Window, Flower Fusion, Sweet Pea Felt Flowers, Old Olive brads

I made this card for a friend who invited Connor and I over for dinner this weekend. I also made her this list book since I love to a) make things for people (who probably wont put it in a drawer) and b) cover things with dsp.
So as a *bonus* here is the list book:

Stamps: Critter Tales (CDStamps)
Paper: Pink Flamingo dsp
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Cameo Coral
Coloring medium: Prismacolor & Gamsol
Accessories/Tools: Scallop edge punch, Paperblooms,
Tempting Turquoise brads, Summer Sun Cordurory brad,
Pretty in Pink Ribbon

I love what you did for that challenge. . .I kept thinking 'what would I do for that'. . .well you nailed it! Your list book is AWESOME! I'm sure she'll love it, if she kept Connor's invite on the fridge. She'll probably cherish it. You're such a sweet friend ;D
