Flowers for a Friend

Hi Cyber Girl Friends! I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend! So far, mine has been fun! Yesterday, my hubby took a 2 hr bike ride with me & his buns were a bit sore to say the least! :( Today we are driving my step-son to soccer camp where he will be for a week. I am going to check before we leave, if there is any stamp or scrapbook stores in the area! :) I needed to make my girlfriend / co-worker a birthday card for Tuesday and a card for my 52 yr old sister-in-law, who just graduated from college, with a Radiology degree. This card is my entry to TWO challenges, the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #232, SC232, & for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, IC184. For the IC184, I had to use the colors featured in any picture from the website Lovely Package. I chose the item called Annabelle, (the picture on the right) & used SU Mellow Moss, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Barely Banana, So Saffron, Pale Plum & Perfect Plum. I was inspired to make the distressed pink rose embellie by following the instructions posted on Dawn McVey's blog. Basically, you tear cardstock circles! So simple, yet so pretty. Those girls at PTI are so creative! I hope you like it! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and browse. Please feel free to leave a comment! I always love to hear from you! :) Be Sweet! Until next time...

Beautiful card!
I see that you were in my "neck of the woods" yesterday, I think... I hope you got a chance to check out my favorite scrapbook store, Scrapbook-ish! It's a pretty cool store (way better than some in the PHX area) which was previously called The Scrapbook Den.

Hi Girls! Thanks for visiting Cupcake's :) I made a version of this card for my honey for our Anniversary but since he is my photographer, I have to wait to post that card :) Karla, I was in Prescott yesterday & Scrapbook-ish was closed!:( Next time I am there, I will definitely stop by :) Have a great day! :) Mona
