Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us last week and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is Knock on WOOD
We are showcasing Tim Holtz this week, which just so happens to be Simon says Stamp Brand of the Month. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.
As you may know, the  Simon Says Stamp Store is accepting new orders, but have longer shipping times for the moment due to the coronavirus. With this in mind we have made the difficult decision to suspend the $50 voucher for this challenge.

We know that many people are staying safe at home and we would love it if you would continue to enter the challenges and have fun! We are all in this together! 

I was going to cheat and use already Woodgrain card from Simon say Stamp, in hindsight I should of done that instead of the Lumber 3d Texture from Tim Holtz because I think I may have got my bigshot plates wrong.

The cardstock I used was Kraft card to give me a brown base colour and used a selection of oxides.

I cut out the Wildflower Stems 1 and 2 doubling up on a few I liked or to fill a gap and had enough to make two cards. I was going to colour but I thought I would keep to white because I love leaving flowers white.

Once the flowers were stuck in place I used the Simon says Stamp Big Thanks and their Big Happy Shadow for the second card, which I finished of with Tiny Words Birthday.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.
