SENDING YOU A SMILE!

My sister just left after being here for a couple of weeks vacation. We all had such a good time that I decided to make a card to send to her, using this weeks color challenge of red, green and yellow for Bloggers Challenge.

Beverly loves flowers and has worked with them for years at florists, nurseries, and her own greenhouses. So I thought my card for her should have at least ONE flower on it! :)

This lonely Hero Arts flower image has been sitting on a shelf in my stamp room for as long as I can remember so I thought it was time to introduce it to some ink! The wording is an image from Endless Creations.

I chose Stampin' UP's Wild Wasabi and Real Red card stock, along with some DP from both Martha Stewart and Jillibean. Copic markers Y11, G20,G82, YG17, R22, R24, and R27 were used for color, along with 2 little red snaps for the finishing touch.

I hope Beverly likes her card, and visits again soon. :)
