{card and a half}

I've come across a new Card Challenge blog thanks to a visit to Liz's blog!  Liz makes beautiful cards.  Beautiful flowers, wonderful shapes with some lovely touches of bling and pearls.  We share a mutual admiration for SRM Stickers too.  :)   Because I'm a link follower (if you give a mouse a cookie...) I went to the Card and a Half challenge blog.  They have a monthly sketch challenge with an extra challenge thrown in for fun!  I did the extra challenge which is to create a card with flowers on it.

{mr. & mrs.}

Here is a close up of the bow:

I used a mix of old and new on this card.  I started with an older sketch from Lucy  (that I cant get to show up here for some reason). The striped pink paper is old Making Memories and the striped ribbon is older SEI.  The white flowers I bought yesterday.  I pulled out their center and replaced it with the pink roses.  To finish it off, a new We've Got Your Sticker Sticker Sentiment from SRM!

Happy Friday, friends!  I hope happy finds you today!
