Stippled Blossoms with HSS179 and PPA192

Well if you checked out my card in a box post from this morning, you read that yesterday was not a good day, but today has been much better!  I provide childcare in my home and well nap time can sometimes be good and sometimes not so good.  That was the root of yesterday's disaster.  Usually during nap time, I head to my craft room and play around with a card challenge or work on an upcoming project for my stamp club.  Well today went so well, that I was able to knock out not one but two card challenges, yep you heard that right...TWO cards!!!

This card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments! and Pals Paper Arts!  HHS has a great color challenge while PPA has a fun sketch challenge.  You should head over to both and check out the details.

I broke out Stippled Blossoms as my choice of stamp set.  Not sure why I don't use this set more.  It is a really lovely stamp set.  The colors worked perfect for how I wanted my card to look.

I even dressed up the inside with some layered blossoms too.

I hope you have enjoyed my card for this color challenge.  Don't forget to leave some "love".  I always enjoy reading comments from my followers!!
