A Day for Daisies: Challenge #10 "Organic Soul" & New Release


I want to start this post out by first thanking all my followers and a special "MWAH" to those of you who recently started following me.  I do appreciate it. 

Now to get down to business...

Today is T.G.I.F so that means a new release for "A Day for Daisies," and also it is time for a new challenge.  I know that we are always bombarded with challenges and only so much time to participate in all of them.  However, I am learning how to combine multiple challenges in order to get the most out of my creations.  You probably already do this, but thought it was worth mentioning. :-D  Okay, back to business (I'm so easily distracted now-a-days!)...

The challenge is called "Organic Soul," which sounds like the title of a really cool R & B song (or maybe the title of my next poem.) and runs from January 21st-February 3rd .  Well, your mission (if you choose to except it) is to create a card using something organic. Pressed leaves on trees, dried flowers in flowing hair, a sandy beach, or homemade paper, anything that inspires you! I am sure you will not find it hard to be inspired by the beautiful world around us!

I used new release images for both my cards today so here's the images for this week's new releases and my cards will follow.

Here's my interpretation of the challenge using "the mushroom child."  I used handmade paper that had dried pressed flowers inside it.  Coincendentially, after I put my card together, I discovered that the flower looked like a heart.  This inspired me to put the following sentiment inside the card "You make my heart flutter."  I love when things work out  this way. 

The New Releases this week are just adorable aren't they?  I love fairies and butterflies so these were perfect.  Here's my card for the new release using "the flower child"

Okay, have you ever created a card...stepped back and said, "Wow"?  Be honest.  I mean if you don't pat yourself on the back no one will, right?  Well, I don't know what it is about this card, but I really love it.  I don't say that about all my creations, really very few.  However, this card I really loved the way it turned out.  What is even more surprising...I love it and it isn't even purple. LOL 

Well, I have showed you my it's time to show me yours.  Head over to the store and snag these beauties (while you are there pick up a few more).  You will not be disappointed!  Tell 'em Candy sent you. :-D

Now get to creating...

Do you Stack Up? "Think Pink":  The second card is for this challenge. :-D
Remember:  There are no mistakes in card making, only opportunities for creativity!
