Paper Jewels Saturday!

This is my very first post as being a DT memeber of Paper Jewels. Paper Jewels is a new store that just opened last month by my wonderful fabulous friend Jenny. You MUST take a look at her store....link on my sidebar. She is selling the Bildmalarna stamps. This one is Little Mimosa....isn't she totally cute! I was doing some shopping online the other day and saw that the store I was shopping in was also selling this line of stamps BUT....Jennys' store is selling them for about 2.00 cheaper!! So she is very competitive. Also...she is not just selling the Bildmalarna line she has decided to venture out with other companies as well. So please stop by the store and take a look at what she has going on. Also she has a blog that offers challenges each month with prizes to be won.
So here is my card for the week...Little Mimosa!
I entered my card in a few challenges this week. Look at this awesome sketch...I really love this one. You can find at the bottom the challenges and where the sketch came from.
This card is a bit out of my element. I am not used to using these colors. I love my pinks and browns and blues and such but using reds and greens is not really me. But I just loved this DP and thought it would go great with this image. I am actually very happy with the way it turned out. And if you don't have any dots or donuts from Stamping Bella...you MUST get some. I use these things on everything...I just love them. I know it's hard to see in the picture but  those green ones around the circle have like a pearl look to them....LOVE THEM!!!!
