Hello and welcome to this weeks simon says stamp wednesday challenge, it is an anything goes challenge...everyone's favorite week! The design team is spotlighting products from memory box, be sure to check them out! Don't forgot every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 that is worth playing for!

I have used a memory box set that is no longer available, the darling sending scribbles set is a very close replacement if you are interested. I used a altenew stencil and embossing paste to create the fun striped background...luv how it looks against the lavender card stock. I watercolored the flowers and hand cut them with scissors. I then placed them all together and added matte white sequins. I cannot wait to see what you create.
