Beloved Friend

Hello~ I think I'm getting this card in just under the wire for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge going on right now. Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

I used MFT Blueprints #20 to cut my top panel and heat embossed it in clear embossing powder using MFT's Confetti background. I created my own bouquet wrap using a stitched scalloped square from MFT and folding it to look like some of the wraps I've been seeing lately on the web. I added some flowers from PTI's "Be" set that I stamped in Mint Julep, Vintage Jadeite and New Leaf inks. I cut the heart using MFT's Blueprints #27 and tucked it in among the flowers. I added a strip of black polka dotted washi tape and the skinny banner from MFT's Blueprints #27 and stamped it using sentiments from SSS Favorite Florals. The bouquet is tied with a little bit of bakers twine with a little star charm for a finishing touch.

I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge ~ using Green, Friendship & Charm
Darnell's NBUS
Addicted To CAS ~ Gift
The Card Concept
Double D Challenges

Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your journey today! ~ Birgit

Very sweet! I love the pop of red that Double D suggested : ) it really does make a wonderful accent!

I was in the word today and was really blessed by Luke 18:27. If you are facing anything hard in your life meditate on this awesome truth!! Something tells me you might need this today.

BIG (((Hugs)))

This is sweet and adorable. My first take, I thought it was an ice cream cone (can you tell I am hungry), then I realized it is a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. Good enough to eat.

I saw ​your card linked at the ​NBUS​ challenge and just had to come see it in more detail. Awesome card! I am now your newest follower and would be honored if you visited my blog and became a follower too.

Your card is so sweet, Birgit. I admire the placement of your charm. And the green gingham makes me smile because my Grandma used to wear dresses with this pattern. Thank you so much for your frequent participation in the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenges. Please remember to include the challenge graphic badge in your posts.
