Had these eCut stamps lotus flowers on my desk and wanted to use the... and then one of the challenges called for dry embossing, so used the Elizabeth Craft Designs "Bark" embossing folder to mimic water along with Stitched Rectangles die set and Lower and Upper case Alphabet set . I think that turned out well. And then I wanted to use the koi fish from Designs By Ryn. and of course one thing led to another...

I'm using a quote ("If You Don't Believe in Miracles..." 3pce set) and sentiment  ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set)stamp from Quietfire Design as well as one of Suzanne's eCut files "Awesome" available on the Silhouette onLine store.

And it fits for these challenges:
Melon Headz Friends  use ribbon, lace or twine
Facebook Cardmaker Challenge  use real stitching (ribbon running stitch in lower border)
Crafty Sentiments  anything goes
Cuttlebug Mania  dry embossing
Pinspirational Challenges  #66 anything goes
TTCRD   #24 - 31  Anything Goes
Crazy Challenge  #223 Create a Scene
Artistic Inspirations  #157 flowers or anything goes
