2RB Banana Split Sunday Challenge No. 11

I hope everyone is ready for this week's 2RedBananas' Banana Split Sunday Challenge, because it's flower time. That's right, all you have to do is use flowers on your project. This was pretty easy for me because I must have a million of them...

I made this card for my mom, just to let her know I'm thinking about her. The card base is purple CS with blocks of Heidi Grace Designs DP. The flowers are also from Heidi Grace (with pearl brad centers from Oriental Trading).

The image is Flourish with Flowers by Jami Bova from 2RedBananas. I stamped it on watercolor paper and colored it with watercolor pencils. I also went crazy with the sparkly accents - I used Sakura Stardust pens, Shimmerz, Blingz and Pink Paislee Pixie Stix glitter. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

I also did yet another page for Kate's mini birthday album. The chipboard and DP is all by Little Yellow Bicycle, from their Baby Safari collection.

I used the Nestabilities Label 1 die to cut out the mat and photo. The felt flowers (orange and green) are from American Crafts and the paper ones (pink and yellow) are by Prima. I think the mini brads are from Creative Impressions, but I'm not sure.

The sentiment is from Jami Bova's stamp set Cajun Chicken by 2RedBananas.

This was a fun challenge. I mean, who doesn't have some of these versatile embellishments? Be sure to go to 2RB's blog for more info and to check out the other DT's samples.


  1. Both projects are very cool Wendy - I love the "I went crazy with the sparkly accents" part. I also love the blue centers of your flowers, I would have never thought to use blue, but they look SO pretty!

  2. the purple fairy is precious! but i really love your layout! it's so so SO awesome! i will definitely be caseing it, just so you know! *grin*


Love to hear what you think!
