February Challenge for Imaginisce!

It's the very first day of February, that's incredible!  Guess what?  A whole new challenge is going up for you over at Imaginisce!!!  That means a Blog Hop is going on and you're in it!!!

If you are hopping along, you should be arriving from the amazingly talented blog of our resident super-crafter, Pinky!  If you don't know what I'm talking about, please pop over to Imaginisce for all the details!

Aphra and Courtney bring to you this photo and color challenge for inspiration:
The prize for the February Challenge is a $75 I-Top Package OR $75 worth of Popular Paper Collections.

To be eligible, you must link up your challenge project on the Feb 1st post by Friday Feb 25th. Be certain that your project includes at least 75% Imaginisce products!

Here is what this challenge inspired me to create:
Please meet my "Dreaming of Spring!" sweet bouquet and card set. I saw the idea to use "Dum Dum" suckers for the floral centers in a project from the February issue of Scrapbooks, Etc. They used them to create some tissue paper flowers.  I thought... how totally fun would this be for this challenge and to use with our Roly Rosies and Pop Up Posies!?!

The little can I picked up at Michael's along with some twisty white floral accents. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. I used my I-Rock and gems to give her a special glow. : ) I used the 28mm I-Top punch for a floral layer here. The leaves I hand cut from some pretty Garden Party papers.  I'm in love with these flowers! They are so fun, easy to do and our Petal Roller tool makes them come alive! I also used my handy I-Bond to attach them to the suckers.  A close up for you:
I had to make a card to go along with the bouquet!  These papers are from the Enchanted collection.  Heart punches are from Marvy Uchida, rub-on; Sizzix, rosebud, Prima; spinners (2), Ranger; other misc., button, thread.  I printed the sentiment on white cardstock from my PC.

The HOP Prize:  This hop's winner will receive an I-Bond with accessories.  To be eligible, you must comment and follow on each designer's blog and then back at the Imaginisce blog.

That's all I have for you today, your next stop on this fabulous hop is our lovely Challenge maven... Aphra!!!

Thank you so much for spending a moment with me here today!  Have yourself a super scrappity day!!!
