The CCEE Stampers Follow a Recipe

Welcome to the CCEE Stampers Challenge.  For the month of May, I (Joanne/jojot) am the hostess.  For the challenges this month, we are going to concentrate on tools and embellishments rather than themes.  Please feel free to do a faux version if you do not have the tool or embellishment.

The challenge for today is to use at least one embossing folder, brad, and a self-made flower on your card/project.  You can certainly use dies to create your flower(s) if you want.

For my card I used a die from Memory Box, a sentiment from Hero Arts, an embossing dot folder, three brads, and some rhinestones on the flower centers.

I kept it simple as even though I got an injection in my back yesterday (well, actually two shots but I'm not going to tell you the whole miserable story),  I am still hobbling around.  The shots were nothing, but the aftermath was ugly.  It was after 7 tonight when I finally made it down to the stamp cave.  So apologies for the simple flower.  I had actually hoped to play with some new flower dies I got, but had not time for the learning curve tonight.

Please join us AND visit the CCEE Blog to see the fab creations by this fantastic and talented team.   If you upload to another site such as Splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1519 to your keywords.

Even in pain, you pump out these gorgeous cards, Joanne. Thanks for this challenge. It was fun.
Hoping your back improves and the pain eases itself off of the radar screen. Thanks for making that painful way to the stamp cave. Your perseverance is such an admirable part of your character. Get better soon.

I am praying that each day brings less pain, Joanne. Please take all the time you need to rest and heal.

I love the fun challenges you have planned for us this month. Today's resulted in an amazing array of gorgeous flowers.

I love your beautiful black and white design. Such sophisticated elegance!

Your "simple" black and white card is just lovely! I hope the injections in your back give you the relief you need.
