Stampin B's and CCEE Challenges

Once again I was able to combine my two Thursday challenges into one card.....love when I can do that!!!

Cindy is our April hostess for the CCEE challenge and this week she asked us to use a pleated flower or any pleated element on our card.  Well....my intention was to use a pleated flower as I have been really wanting to make one, but I bombed...so my flower became my pleated horizontal panel.  HOWEVER....since then I have made a few pleated flowers you will soon be seeing on cards.  Finally, I figured out what I was doing wrong!!!!!  

Vicki is this week's hostess for the Stampin B's challenge.  She asked us to make Mother's Day cards.  Since I did not need a MD card, I made a feminine card in its place that could be used for any occasion.

The silhouette stamp I used is by I Brake for Stamps.  The border punch used is a Martha Stewart punch.

Thanks for stopping in to visit.......Please feel free to use the following links to get to the team blogs of the two teams.  You will be dazzled by their work.  AND....if you'd like to visit the team members' individual blogs or galleries, just click on their names and links on my sidebar.

You DO realize that pink is merely a shade of RED, right??LOL. therefore, you have used my favorite color combo!! I love this flower/weed silhouette. Gorgeous card, Joanne!

Love your flower and am anxiously awaiting all your pleated flowers.
I tried my hand at a wilted flower this week...haven't used it yet. I may do a redo on it.
Gorgeous card, Joanne.
