Wonder-flowery Thank You

As with everything in life, now and then it's time to take a break so that we can come back and enjoy that something we love anew.   That'a pretty much what it felt like for me as I pulled out some stamps, papers, dies and perused some of my favorite challenges today.  

I wanted to create a thank you card for my fun and crazy aunt that sent this amazingly large two foot chocolate Easter bunny for my kids to enjoy.   The colors from this week's ColourQ 239 challenge did the trick.  It's such a fun combination, it reminded me of my wonderfully fun aunt.  I combined it with this wonderfully flexible sketch challenge from Cardabilities #98

 Here are inspiration challenges for this card.   

Stamp: Stampin' Up (Banner Greetings)
Ink: Stampin' Up
Printed Paper: Echo Park (Victoria Gardens)
Cardstock: Stampin' Up
Embossing Folder: Paper Studio
Border Punch: EK Success
Die Shape: Spellbinders
Flowers: Prima
Brads: Misc

Chevron Mother's Day Blossoms

I'm dusting off some materials and stamps I haven't used in a while.  This card is also a Mash up of two challenges: Dynamic Duos and Retro Sketches

 This card features all Stampin' Up products, from the DSP and cardstock to the stamps used.   

And here's the inside of the card.   

The challenges that inspired this card.
