Don't worry... I'm still alive...

I love how one of my favorite bloggers wrote, "The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated." I know I've been MIA. It's the holiday season. I get so busy, I stop making cards for challenges and for fun and begin to make things solely for the holidays. So.... I'mmmm baaacccckkkkk!!! But my mojo is not. I tried to get it started again with the color challenge on Stampin' Royalty. I've also been fighting a cold so this may be too late to link, but I made it so I am posting it! (I just checked... it's still open! Yes! Now I'll finally get some feedback on a card!)

So I started with a base of Crumb Cake, then added a layer of Chocolate Chip that I embossed with the tulip frame folder. Next I have layers of both Pretty in Pink and Rose Red. I like to shake it up and change things for each card I make. You can see how I varied the order and size of the layers.
I stamped the flower from Sprinkled Expressions on white in Rose Red ink. On one, I just have the flower. On the other one, I used the spritzing tool and sprayed some Pretty in Pink spots and Crumb Cake spots.
On both cards, I popped up the center layer.
Also, for each card I put the sentiment on the inside, and this is a sentiment I just love! I think it's so sweet and fun.

Here's a close up of inside.
Thanks for looking!

wow! these are fantastic! They could even be put on the wall, they look like art! You did an amazing job of making that tulip frame into a square! I love square cards but never seem to make may have just inspired me to make more squares! Thanks for playing this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge!
