Stamp A Holics 125-Inspiration Challenge

Hola Amigas! How are you? What a BEAUTIFUL week? I have been SUPER busy...I am STILL working on my sister's wedding invitations and POTTY TRAINING Joaquin...WHEW! Solimar was FULLY trained at 18 months...Joaquin NOT SO MUCH! But he is getting it...Today's challenge is brought to us by Nancy Dawson. She gave us an inspiration challenge.
Solimar's room has the same colors...Pixie Pink, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise and she has a mixture of purples...So I choose to work with Certainly Celery (a card is not a card without some GREEN), Pixie Pink and Orchid Oppulence.
And there is Señor Asqueroso...Not to HAPPY because I out stickers over his mouth. He was being NASTY. He said I wasn't going to win because I was too undecisive...and although that is VERY TRUE he needs to be more supportive. SI?
Well I saw the flowers on the wall and thought HMMM maybe the scallop circles may work...Only a SHORT amount of time will tell. Does it work....Does it not work...Not sure I am feeling this sketch...
Maybe three instead of four...
How about some pretty flower brads...AYE NO...It's not working...Do you hear Mr. I told you so in the background...
Okay...let's changing it up and add layers...and let me look for a stamp set...Dios, mio...the time is going TOO FAST.
I love our new clear mount Stamp option. It's the same GREAT quality you've grown to LOVE. But the storing option is now thinner...To me that is important because I had my own stamp room but I had to give it to Joaquin otherwise he would be sleeping in the hallway...I didn't mind this option but well my hubby didn't...So now how to make the flowers PRETTY!
I choose to use my watercolor pencils...and even though it seems I have 1 minute and 36 seconds left...well I didn't make it I had to go back for shading and then the card was too FLAT so I had to take it apart and distess it a little...and her you go...

Beautiful card, amiga. Love the coloring and distressing. And the colors.
Sr. A seems to be as bossy as the rest of them! The stickers over the mouth are a great idea. And he thinks you are indecisive? Gee, wonder why. Of course I kind of get all my indecisions out of the way while I play with design ideas, before I sit down to do the final version.
