flowery friend

Happy Wednesday morning...I can't believe the week is half over already...Labor Day has thrown me off! I took a few minutes last night while Shawn was tucking in kids to do this card. I got an idea while I was eating dinner and decided to see if I could make something of it. I think it turned out ok. This was the first time I have used my office paper since I bought it months and months ago! I love the flowers in the office set and wanted to do something with them in these colors. I love the blue, pink and green combo! I used a piece of white textured cardstock for my card base. {the card is 5 1/2 square} I layered my choc. chip paper with inked edges under my office DSP...then I added the ribbon and a photo corner. I used my Color Coach to choose some Dynamic Duo colors, so I could do a lighter colored flower and a darker center. I like the look of the 3 brads making the center of the flower..that was one reason I wanted to try this card out. I popped a couple of the flowers up on glue dots. I finished with the friend sentiment from Boatloads of Love {minus the 'ship'} and added some stickles to just the celery flower edge. Have a fabulous day!!...thanks for checkin' in! :)

I will for sure need to escape long before the teenage years hit with all these girls! I am already getting a fill for it and Taylore is not even 9 yet, although I think I get more of it from my drama queen 5 year old McKenna!
