Hey There!

Hey there, girlies!

Happy Friday to you! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? I am going on a little road trip with my hubs to take a Copic Certification class. I am looking forward to it.

Today I wanted to share another card I made inspired by Jessica Witty's phone book challenge. I've been wanting to make these flowers a la Betsy Veldman for a while now and thought it would be fun to combine both.

Here's what I came up with.

More orange goodness, too! The background was stamped with one of the patterns from Background Basics: Retro. Then I made my little plaid pennant using Distressed Stripes and lots of different colors. My phone book flowers were matted with the Mat Stack 1 die and a strip of Berry Sorbet cardstock. Isn't it cute? I think so - I sure love those flowers.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend! I'm so glad you took the time to stop by today - thank you!!
