Last Minute Again!

I'm getting good at last minute entries.  Actually, I was the one in college typing a paper in the hall closet while everyone else was asleep the night before it was due!  
I have very few C&9 products & a huge wishlist, so decided I better get an entry made for the May Floral Challenge.  Once again I used the Floral Fill-In Patterned Paper with the matching stencils.  Such a clever idea! 
The inks & matching cardstock are PTI Lilac Grace & Amethyst Allure.  The sentiment is from the C&9 Flourish Stamp set.  I used my Mini MISTI & stamped each word 3 times in Brilliance Starlite Black.  The curved edge was done with SSS A2 Curved Edge die.  Decided against embellishments, but I did add white dots to the printed ones.  It is amazing the difference it makes.

Yesterday I entered this card into the Freshly Made Sketches challenge via Flickr as I just had minutes until it closed. 
It's also my entry for the Poppystamps challenge to use printed paper.  I really need that to be the challenge every month--haha!  It was fun to use a piece of the beautiful Lawn Fawn plaid paper with Distress Inks that matched for the watercoloring.  The flower & sentiment are from Poppystamps Friends & Flowers stamp set.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
Edited to add: I think this card is pretty summery, so will also enter SSS Work It Wednesday.

  2. That's so funny...I can just see you in the closet! I have to do everything as early as possible, because I'm such a baby about sleep. Your lavender, gray and black card is stunning! Love the watercolor stripes with the flowers stamped on top - so pretty!

  4. your floral in the lilac color is so pretty and love the watercolour wash on the second one. i was typing those last minute papers on a typewriter and what a chore that was using all that "white-out" stuff. when i started out as a library/media specialist i even had to type those card catalog cards - yikes - what a memory!!!

  5. What a great way to use pattern paper, Greta! The curved edge on the lilac card is eye-catching and the color wash across the floral adds pizazz to the design. Your closet story reminds me of many a late night marathon adventure for me too!

  12. You made me laugh with your anecdote about typing in the cupboard - I can relate to that. But about the cards. Love the curved element on your violet card and the watercolour/tartan one just steals my heart. I'm going to try that style - it sooo pretty. TFS

  15. Both cards are lovely Greta. The plaid paper is so sweet and a great layer for your blooming trio. That C&9th fill in paper makes for a fun look too. So smart.
