Blooming Hope

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  I'm so glad the weekend is almost here!  I've been feeling so much better and getting caught up on everything so I think I'm actually going to get to just relax and unwind this weekend.  Sounds heavenly, don't ya think?  {grin}  My mojo seems to be kicking back in and when I saw the SCS SC352 sketch challenge this week I couldn't wait to give it a go.  Here's my elegant take on the sketch...

The Making Of:
When I sat down to stamp, a bag of these pretty flowers caught my eye and right then I decided to use it as my inspiration for the card. So I picked some coordinating papers out, then chose ink colors of Groovy Guava and Calypso Color to try to capture the feel of the flower with some sponging around my sentiment circle.  The sentiment is one of my favorites from the Hope Blooms set, then I cut leaves using the Leafy Sprigs die set and stamped the coordinating leaf stamps from Sunny Days in Basic Gray.   Some pearl and liquid pearl accents, a bit of stitching and a couple strips of twill and the card was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a FABULOUS weekend!
