Friendly flowers


     Been a bit quiet around here hasn't it.  My hubby got some unexpected  time off and since it's been cold he's been inside.  I love him getting some rest but it throws my whole routine off.  Then a nasty old virus decided to wipe out my computer.
     It's Bellarific Friday and I'm trying to write this post out on my Kindle.  Definitely not as easy  the computer.  LOL  I can't add the graphics for next weeks sketch challenge so make sure to check out Blogabella.
     Last weeks challenge was  to use flowers on your creation.  I've used Flowers for a true friend  and colored them in Prismacolor pencils.


     I've used the accompanying sentiment on the inside.


     Sorry my post isn't quite up to snuff, but I hope you enjoyed the card.  You can find all the details about the next challenge and how to enter at Blogabella.
     Be blessed.

Supplies:
Paper--Recollections, My Mind's Eye, The Paper Studio vellum
Stamps--Stamping Bella "Flower for a true friend"
Ink--Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black, Prismacolor pencils and OMS
Tools:  Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border Dies 2, Impressions Obsession Butterfly die
Miscellaneous:  Pretty Pink Posh sequins

  16. I'm speechless!! This is jaw dropping Tracy ... Absolutely stunning right down to the tiniest sequin. We don't seem to be able to get different size sequins here and seeing them on your card they really look fabulous ... Though I missed you I'm glad you got to rest a little ... I know just how much having DH home disrupts a routine! Mine's off to Football so I have a few hours free Yay!

  18. Computer viruses are the worst! And I know how much having hubby at home disrupts the routine. I hope you get everything fixed and back to normal soon.
    I am absolutely in LOVE with your floral card! Really love what you did with the image and your coloring is gorgeous! The scattered sequins and vellum butterflies are soooo pretty, too. And the background design with the split cardstock is absolutely gorgeous. That strip of black is just the perfect balance to the bold flowers!
