A Flower Here and a Flower There

Yeah! More fun online challenges!
 I first off wanted to use the Fusion challenge.  It is a sketch and a color combo and you can use both or either.  I did decide to use both.  I started out with a fun background with some Distress Inks and other good stuff. I always like how these turn out.  These are some drops of Heidi Swapp gold spray, that stuff is so cool. 
 In order to create those little banners that are hanging down, I used some Paper Tapes that I had.  I added the tapes to white cardstock so they were sturdier.  The stamps for the label, the flowers and the sentiment are from PaperTrey, Inc.  
 Here is the Fusion challenge.
 I also wanted to create a card to go with the Less Is More "One Layer" challenge. I don't know why but this seems to be such a hard challenge for me.  I think it is because I just want to add "stuff" so much!!!
 I created a simple background with a stencil and some Distress Inks.  Over that I stamped the solid flower and embossed that so the black was more vivid.  The flower and the sentiment are from PaperTrey, Inc.
Here is the Less is More challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
