Paint Chip Overdose

Most of this card is made with paint chips. Do you know how much variety and texture there is out there in paint chips....it is amazing. I made this card for three challenges. The Virtual Stamp Night was held this past Saturday and that challenge was to use the paint chips...it so intrigued me. Over at My Grafico the challenge was to make a baby card. And, at The Cuddlebug Spot the challenge is to make a card with your favorite embossing folders. Why don't you check it out and join in. They have several prizes and one of them is all the new releases from CHA of the Cuddlebug embossing folders...WOW!!!

For the card:
Punched and assembled flowers from the paint chips
Punched the lace with Martha Stewart border punch and assembled
Punched the florish from a Cuddlebug die (sorry I don't know the name of it) Michael's has them right now for $9.99 reduced from $20.99 and they are gorgeous.
PSX Bear Stamp colored with pencils and blended
Cuddlebug Swirl embossing folder and the flowers from the "Frills" collection
Bow and tag stamped with "Baby" from a dollar bin stamp from "JoAnne's

Hope you enjoyed looking at today's card. I want to welcome my new followers to my blog. I sure do appreciate and look forward to you comments. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me.

I love that you recycled paint chips for this... I just took a stack from Home Depot the other day thinking "oooh, look at these colours and textures!" but I haven't used them...yet.

Your card is simply delicious! TFS ~ Carolyn
