Paper Sweeties September Challenge

I  received and email from Debbie telling me I earned a spot to guest design with the Sweeties Teamies for this September challenge. I also won 20$ to spend in the store! (Nice!)
That was very exciting ..but…. then I did worry what I could come up with since I did not have any border stamps. 

I sorta clustered my flowers in a bit of a star shape. I used the stamp set Beautiful  to create my lower edge and for the sentiment!
The flowers are from Stand Add-on 2. I bought that set with my granddaughters in mind. It has so many cute items to put on the cart. We had so much fun playing with them a few weeks ago.
 They keep asking when we can make cards again
 and use the pumpkin stand.
Thanks for stoping by!


  1. Marybeth, this is just beautiful...I love your sweet little flowers are bunched up like a fall bouquet! Your coloring is just perfect and that bottom edge of your card, just brilliant!

  2. Congratulations on being a guest designer. As usual, you did a fabulous job. Those little flowers are so very sweet.

  3. Marybeth, your card is so pretty! the way you layered the little flowers was very clever and the touch of leaves sprouting out adds a nice dimension. Clever to use the banners for the bottom edge!!

  15. Oh, I see I've got a lot of catching up to do!!
    Well you certainly solved the 'having-no-border-stamp-problem'!!!
    That's such a creative solution and gorgeous too!!
    Very stylish!
    You coloured all the flowers (!) and I sooo much love the heart of the flower/ stamens you created.
    The sequins are the perfect touch to give it a little 'glamour' and depth.


    Ps. Your grandchildren are soooo very lucky to have a grandmother like you who has all this wonderful stuff to create all those gorgeous cards with! :-)

  16. I think you rocked this one Marybeth...

    I love hearing how you spend time with your girls...
    and your guys...
    but you know you're giving them memories of a lifetime right? :)
