Flowers for a Friend

Hello Stampin' Friends.

Here we are almost at the end of hump day.
I hope your week is going well!

I've used this sweet little flower stamp and inked it with markers, stamped it on
Whisper White and colored it in by swiping markers on a palette and picking up
the color with a blender pen.

I die cut the image and softly sponged around the flower, stamped the sentiment
and added it to the card front with a die cut piece of foam.

I felt that it needed a little something else so I took a snippet of white,
and scored it 3 times.  It still needed something so I added a narrow
strip of cardstock to add some contrast.

A little twine balanced the colors.

I do love the Razzleberry and soft blue together!

Time Out Challenges are celebrating this month.
It's their 3rd Birthday!
Happy Birthday, Time Out!

Their challenge this month is
Love and/or Friendship with the optional twist of 'spotlight stamping' where you add colour only to one raised area of your image

Check out the awesome cards that the DT have done and in the gallery.

The Flower Challenge this month is

At Just Us Girls the word of the week is
An oval is a geometric shape, I think.

I'm going to take my snippets over to
where it's always fun to play.
I've been absent for way too long.
Life is too short to be too busy to have fun!
The playmates have been so generous with their comments
even though I've been absent.
You guys are the best!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Delicate and so VERY pretty.

Bobby said...

This is such a soft and lovely floral card, Bonnie.

Love the softness and just very subtle shade of color on this one. As usual your w/c background is just elegant. Also liked the brilliant idea to add the extra scored border with the scant black separation from the main image. Just lovely! TFS

What a beautiful card Bonnie! I love that flower and I love the colors you used. The blue and purple really do look so good together! The simplicity of this card lets that beautiful flower shine! I love the scoring at the bottom too, that looks great and I love the purple twine at the top. Just a beautiful card! Hugs, Brenda
