Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge #23!

Last Day to enter my Hair Bow Gift Set Giveaway!!!  See THIS post!

Hello!  Aren't these pillows fabulous?  This is our inspiration for our Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge : )  I immediately thought of the floral paper in the Cosmo Cricket Material Girl pack, and tried to pull out the blue and green in the photo:
I decided to make my first ever easel card!  I can see now why they are so addicting because I had so much fun with this : )  You can find the easel card tutorial here.  I used this adorable image from C.C. Designs~Sweet November Stamps called Sparkle Thistleweed.  Isn't she so cute and sassy!  I thought this sentiment from the Verve set Express Yourself was just perfect!  This qualifies for the All That Scraps challenge this week to make an easel card, and Flutter By Wednesday Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Challenge to use green : )  Thank you so much for stopping by and make sure you check out what the other Divas created:

Um....are you starting to tie your buttons now that I am starting to leave mine naked? These just seem more noticable...hmmm....or maybe you don't use them much. Anywho - love seein' Material Girl...love looking at those papers....and this card is really really neat. You're always so brave to take on cool things like this.
