Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge - Flowers

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for my Flutter By Wednesday post.

Today starts a new Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge. One of the Rock Stars chooses the theme and the others create their masterpieces. Today's challenge was chosen by ME, and I hope no one finds it to be too much of a challenge so that there are LOTS of entries! The theme for today's challenge is to use flowers. Please visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, to find out what you need to know for a chance to win a full sheet of unmounted rubber of your choice. You will find the other design team members' cards there, also. Or you can follow these links to their blogs:
Cheri ~ Dawn ~Joy ~ Karen ~ Kecia ~ Maki ~ Patti

For my card, I started with the embossed background. Harriet brought the folder (by Sizzix) to my house in June at my request, and I embossed a few of them to have on hand. I love the look of white on white, so that's what I went with. The flowers are Morning Glories, and can be found on this page. I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic markers. I cut the oval with a Nestability and sponged with light yellow before removing from the die. I matted with white, cut with a scalloped oval Nestability. The image panel is mounted on Pop Dots. The sentiment can be found on this page. For my card, I stamped it in a straight line, rather than in two lines as it comes.

I sure hope you'll consider joining in on the fun and entering your flower-themed card to the challenge. You also have nearly a week to participate in the current WHAT IF? Wednesday sketch challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.

If you're still with me, you'll be reading my announcement. This is my last post as a Repeat Impressions Rock Star:( After nearly two and a half years, I have decided to step down. I have thoroughly enjoyed being on the design team, and I thank Wendy for everything! I will miss all my fellow design team members and my RI challenges and Stamp of the Week postings. I hope you will continue to check out the other Rock Stars' blogs. Also, Wendy has THREE new members! Check them out on the RI blog, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Very pretty! That embossing folder is beautiful and does most of the work for the card. :) The flower image you added is just the right addition.

Oh, Lynette, this is just stunning! Beautiful card for this challenge. Sigh...I so hate to see you go. I've enjoyed working with you for the last 4 months, and be forewarned, I intend to continue to 'stalk' you here! Take care, and best wishes for whatever endeavors you embark on next! Hugs...
