Flowery Friend

Ooh, I am so excited to share today's card with you - I just love the way it came together! Inspiration struck right away after I saw this week's Play Date Cafe Color Challenge.

This is the sweet, bright, fun color story for this week.

Didn't Jaclyn do an awesome job? It is so cheery!

And here is my little card:

Eeee! I love it!

I combined the A Pocketful set and the new Mother's Day Bouquet set from Wplus9 for this card.  Let's talk for a moment about this Mother's Day Bouquet set.  The flowers are gorgeous and I adore the little leafy spray images that are included.  The Mother's Day sentiment is perfect, but I know I will use the set again and again for so much more than that.  And with a $6 price tag, it is a steal.  I just thought you should know. ;)

Just makes me happy, and I'm sending it off to a friend in the hopes that it makes them happy, too. :)

I also wanted to remind you that voting is still open for the Stamping Royalty Honorable Mentions. If you haven't voted yet, head over to the Paper Crafts Connection and check out the cards. The other gals really did a great job!

Well I hope your day is fantastic, our weather here is supposed to warm up a bit headed into the weekend and I can't be more excited about the sun shining! Hugs!
