One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Create Along With Us

I couldn't resist making another card that Betsy Veldman showed on one of the release days, here it is:
And then my BFF made a card for the challenge and this is it:
I loved her soft look and the nice soft light blue background, but of course I had to change it up and go for bold and bright!
 I used the exact same flowers and the bees, too!
I stamped my flowers using the Hero Arts Ombre ink, lilac to grape.
Distress ink, squeezed lemonade was used for the sponging around the edges.
I have a very sweet and dear friend whose birthday is on Monday and thought she would like this card.
Even though this card cannot be entered in the challenge, I LOVE the idea of CASing the designers cards during the release!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
