Flowers, flowers, flowers

That is our theme for this Friday.  Happy Friday everyone!  Looks like another rainy weekend in our neck of the woods.  It was a beautiful day yesterday, nice and sunny and warm, everything is growing good in the flower beds, birds are chirping, the smell of freshly cut grass, and the nice aroma coming from neighbours bbq's.

So on with the card for today.  Since the theme was flowers, I decided to colour up Gardenia Greenthumb. A perfect image for this weeks theme.

I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and coloured her up using prismacolour pencils. I based my colours of some new papers from Basic Grey Sweet threads.
Yes, I used this collection again! The colours are just so pretty.
Did some stitching on the card and added some turquoise seam binding ribbon,  a deep pink prima rosette, and some glitter.

Hop on over to Bloggabella land to see what everyone else did for this week.

Next weeks challenge theme is Kraft.  So incorporated Kraft  onto your card in one way or another. There is some bella bucks up for grabs so email you card  off to Emily by thursday night

Have a wonderful weekend. And to all the Mom's out there, have a blessed Mother's Day on Sunday!

OK, not only did we use the same image but the same paper collection! Was I in your head, or were you in mine???

This is beautiful, Pauline! I LOVE that bright turquoise green, and that darling little rose!

Wish my greenthumb was this good! And how do you find all the greatest adornments? I love the deep pink flower with the seam binding ribbon. And the Basic Grey paper is a must - saw a peak of that last week and you have it in your beady little hands. Dang sistah.
