Flowers for My Friend

Happy Tuesday!  

Well, after a bluster and rainy night, the temperature outside has dropped again.  It's rather cool outside, and I'm wondering , "will it ever stay warm?"  I am so ready for the shorts, tank tops, swimming and basking in the sunshine already >sigh!<  I'm such a sun worshipper! LOL!  So here is a card that makes me think of warmer weather....

As usual, all of the flowers on this card are handmade by yours truly - I am thinking I will probably never get over my paper flower making obsession!  I really wanted to showcase the flowers on this card, so I kept the layout clean and simple.  I used my Nesties Label #10 to create a frame for the sentiment, then embossed it, using Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I finished off this creation with a border (MS Lattice), and the pearl trim.  Viola!   This card makes me think of a lovely, sunshiny, Spring Day....

I created this card for  card swap, and also entered it in the following challenges:

Our Creative Corner Challenge - "Blooming Blossoms"

Paper Play Challenge #16 - "No Patterned Paper"

A Spoon Full of Sugar - "3-D Something"
