Friends are the brightest flowers....... the garden of life..

....hello everyone and a very happy Sunday evening to you all.
I thought it was about time I made a card after all that sewing!
So I have made this one for my friend Fiona, aka Fi Fi la Flea!
I love this little image by Leanne Ellis,
it is a fundraiser stamp and 100% of the profits go to
Breast Cancer, it's available here at Funky Kits.
This week over at the Sugar Bowl that v.talented lady Marlene
has produced this amazing sketch, what a fab one it is too!
I have rotated it as I preferred the large flower to the left.
I have water coloured my image then used TH distress inks-
aged Mahogany (love, love, love this)! and tattered rose to
distress all papers. Papers are from DC and are from a Wedding
Pack, I thought those gorgeous roses matched the one in
her hair! There was also a little extra theme to the challenge
which was to add something recycled onto your card so I used
this large flower which came off (fell, not pulled)! a silk bouquet
I have. You can see this got a bit of an inking too!

Can you see....I have slipped a little tag into that right hand
corner....shhhh no one will notice (it's not part of the sketch)
but I really wanted to used this stamp (which was way too big)
for my tag, so I stamped half on one side..

and the other half the other side... see!
Stamp from Hampton Art Stamps
added these two pearls at intervals and then my little
hand made with love charm on the end.
Sentiment printed from PC, ribbon and doily from stash.
Think that everything, enjoy the rest of your Sunday,
TFL, Happy Crafting, Suexx
