For this next card I used DP from Jilly Bean Soup's Dutch Mustard paper pad. I used Cryogen White for my card base and then cut the DP slightly smaller. That card stock has a subtle sparkle that I just love and hate to cover up completely. The yellow is Memory Box Sunflower card stock. This flower I stamped with Cantaloupe and then I swiped some Tangelo around the center and again Bamboo Leaves for the stem and leaves. The sentiment was stamped with Rich Cocoa. All of the DP was part of a previous order I received from Ellen Hutson , love her site. Hope you like my cards and thanks for stopping by.

Cards from My Prize
I was lucky enough to be the first Facebook winner in Ellen Hutson's 5th anniversary give away. The prize was a Hero Arts/Sizzix Floral Stamp & Die Cut set. What was so impressive to me was how fast I received it. Of course I had to play with it right away. Forget about cleaning the house, doing the laundry and getting ready for Christmas, I had to play. For this card I used Echo Park's Happy Days for my DP. I stamped my image using Memento Cantaloupe and Bamboo Leaves and after cutting it out with the matching die I added some Potters Clay, Tangelo and Canteloupe to the petals with Memento markers and colored the center with Rich Cocoa. I mounted the flower and the little dragonflies onto a piece of scrap black card stock after adding the scrap of yellow across it (the DP is two sided so I knew it would work-takes a lot of thinking out of the process when using these paper pads). I stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black and cut it out and the card was done.
