It is Stamptacular Sunday Challenge#80!  The challenge this week is all about my BFF: Buttons, Flowers, and Friendship!  Our sponsor this week is My Favorite Things.  Check out the link to find out how to play along and win from MFT!  I am using My Favorite Things  Framed Greetings Die and Stamp set.  Instead of using the die cut frame this time on the outside, I chose to just use one of the sentiments alone.  Really shows the versatility of this ensemble.  I am also sporting one of the Die-namics rolled flowers from MFTs die-namics collection.  I say one because MFT just released the new rolled rose die cut last week.  Fabulous and another must have!  I topped my rolled flower off with a jumbo gem bling!  For the inside I am using the Framed Greetings Die and Stamp set.
I stamped the frame and used the MFT alphabet letters to create the word FRIEND from one of the alphabet sets in the store.

I am using the colors from Color Throwdown #113!  The trio of plum, expresso, and ivory was just to rich to pass up! I am also CASING a design by Barbara Anders from the CASE Study #9 Challenge.  I really heart Barbara's style and I just had to play along.  Instead of stamping the leaves I chose to punch them out with my dusted off MS leaf punch.  I also made a paper flower.  I modified the sketch a bit to accomodate an A2 style card.  It seems tiny after my standard 5.5s. 

Here are a few more challenges I played along with for my card!
CCEE1040 Flower Power:  Homemade flowers...I used a die cut to make mine!
Stamps R Us #6:  All Nature Theme!
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #6 Distressing:  I sponged the edges of the ivory panels and plum.
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge#31:  NO square cards.  I did an A2!     
Incy Wincy:  Sparkle!

    The shadow effect that you achieved is fantastic, and so is the rolled flower! I was having trouble combining these colours together, but they are put together so effortlessly here - great card altogether! Thank you for playing with us :)
