Flowers for You

Hello and happy Wednesday!  I hope the weather is behaving where you are because it isn't behaving like I would like it to here.  Rain and snow are on the way again.  Enough already!   I have a Spring inspired card to share with you today.  If only Spring would hurry up and get here. 


I am so excited to share today's card with you.  Several weeks ago I received an e-mail from the very talented Melanie Muenchinger asking me if I would like to guest design for her.  Of course, I got right back to here and said HECK YA!  I love Melanie's floral sets and this one is another hit! The set I have been blessed to work with is called Spring Basket and is available now at Gina K. Designs. The sentiment is from Melanie's A Year of Flowers set.  The sketch was created by the talented Suzanne Dean for one of the GKD Release Party challenges.  Of course, I am a couple of days late for the challenge, but that is how I roll these days!  I chose to work with the colors for this week's CR84FN16 Color Challenge.  The challenge this week was to use Light Pink, Medium Violet and Gray.  It is so hard to see in this pic, but the print paper behind the beautiful basket of flowers is some old, old light gray/white diamond pattern paper that I found while recently trying to "organize" my paper stash.  I glittered up the flowers with some Spica glitter pens, added some pink twine and called it good. 

For those of you who have been sending your thoughts and prayers for my Mom, I am pleased to say she is doing well after her surgery last Friday.  I am off to visit with her today. :)

Recipe:
Stamps:  Spring Basket, A Year of Flowers-GKD
Paper:  all from my stash-----yippee!
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Extras:  Twine, Copics, Spicas, Rhinestones, Flourishes

Hugs,
