A new challenge and blog hop at Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge!!

Wow, its all happening at Cowgirl's Sunday Stampen Challenge this week, we have a fab new challenge 'Handmade Flowers' and a blog hop too as we are celebrating a whole bunch of brand new images in CJ's store 'Cowgirl Up Designs Digital Stampen Ranch'. Bunch being the operative word as CJ is launching loads of new floral images and if you're quick there is 25% off!!!  We're also celebrating as this week we welcome lots of new ladies to the posse at Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge!!!!

As usual we have a wonderful sponsor, the lucky winner of this weeks challenge will win these gorgeous ribbons from Crafty Ribbons , 3 of CJ's fabulous images AND the winner's badge to display on their blog!!

How gorgoeus are those ribbons??? Pop over to the Crafty Ribbons blog too as there are some amazing tutorials for making ribbon flowers and lots of other things too. You don't have to make ribbon flowers to enter this weeks challenge, you could use your punches, diecuts, grungepaper, what ever you fancy... I can't wait to see what you can come up with!!
Don't forget the top 3 also get 2 of CJs images and the blog badge too!

Here's my card made with one of CJ's beautiful new images, coloured as usual with promarkers and then I added little white dots to the flower petals with a white gel pen. I stamped a floral flourish stamp in versamark around the edge and dusted it with orange cosmic shimmer powder. The orange gingham paper is from my stash. I made the flowers from dotty ribbons from Crafty Ribbons and added the centres which were made by flattening bottle tops in my cuttlebug and adding seed beads to the centres.
