Good morning, Friends! It is so good to be back to my regularly scheduled routine! I still have the lingering effects of a cold but I am happy to be back to "normal". My son even stayed home from school one day this week because he had the same thing. Feels more like allergies than a cold. And with all this unseasonably warm weather we are having, it is no wonder! 

Today's card was inspired from a sketch at Create with Connie and Mary. It is actually their sketch challenge for those that have subscribed to their Create Occasions Edition. And it is their sketch from last week. I just loved this sketch! Something a little different. My card base is Basic Grey to which I added a piece of the Twitterpated designer paper. At the top of this I added a piece of the Blushing Bride satin pleated ribbon. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White that was 2 3/8" wide (can't remember how long). I stuck one end through the top of my 2 1/2" circle punch (the other end is sticking out so that it won't get punched). This rounds the top. Then I stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in black StazOn. I took a strip of Riding Hood Red and ran it through the Big Shot using the Adorning Accents edgelits. This is glued to the back of the Whisper White piece. Then I took some of my cut out flowers from the Bordering on Romance stamp set and arranged them on my panel. One is glued flat and the other is popped up. The trio of flowers has brads in the flower centers. They were stamped on Whisper White in black StazOn and then colored with markers - Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Riding Hood Red, and Baja Breeze. This whole Whisper White panel is then popped up onto the card. These flowers were leftovers of the project that I did for the Create Occasions Edition. But you have to be a subscriber to see that! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
