Lily Pad Cards "Resist" challenge!!

So even though I have been quiet in Blogland lately, I am still busy making cards every chance I get!! Made this card for Lily Pad Cards website, the resist challenge is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.  I love resist stamping, love playing with Distress Inks, embossing powders, stamps.. you name it.  So, needless to say, I am in my element when doing cards like this!

I used the Fiskars Everywhere Punch to punch the scalloped window in the center, the background flowers are from Penny Black, and the sentiment and tag on the bottom are from The Craft's Meow. Oh, and cardstock is PTI and let me tell ya.. this was my first time using their cardstock and I finally know what I have been missing!!!!!!!!  If you're like me, you're thinking .."but all cs looks so similar, why pay more?"..  Well, here's what I relished about it.. #1 :  My cards now stand up on their own!  Imagine that huh??!!! #2:  Hardly any bends or creases (unless I put it there on purpose), #3: Very sturdy, thick and ink-loving!!  Definitely worth the money in my book!

Hope you all have a wonderful evening, I have to go get the little prune out of the bathtub and into cozy PJ's!!  Hugs :)
