I really love the color combo from the challenge at DRS Design Challenge Blog:

I used these stamp set for my card, an old Bee Set from Hero Arts and my new Botanical Love stamp from Create a Smile.

Do you believe LESS IS MORE...I believe it :) this image is mini and I dont need to colored much area but I concentrate at making the background color with 3 blue colors (after I masked the flower), to fit the color challenge above. And I also gave the flower white dots for accent. I am happy with the result of my coloring flower (yeah you know I am so bad at coloring flower and I learn day by day :) )

    LG hellerlittle

  31. I love these long legged Stamping Bella women. The background embossed with white on white paper looks super for a wedding card.
    The circle image looks so much more interesting cut the way you did and mounted onto the blue cardstock. As for your first card I really like it's masculine look, I've got a bicycle die like this and now you've motivated me to dust it off and use it....
