TGIF Peeps!!! Hope you all had a great week, we have had some cool and rainy days here is Southwest Missouri, but a warm up is on its way for the weekend.

Today I am sharing a card I made with the sketch this week on Splitcoaststampers. I did have a bit of a struggle with the angle piece behind the main panel, but I finally got it figured out and I like the finished card. I used a couple of in this years in colors on here, I haven't really used them that much so it was a nice change to work with a couple. I chose Poppy Parade and Blushing Bride. The base of the card is Blushing Bride and I followed that with some poppy parade and then some DS paper from the level 1 hostess in color paper pack. The angle piece is made up of some poppy parade, punched on both sides with the lace edge punch and a strip of blushing bride DS paper down the middle.

I added some blushing bride ribbon down the angled strip and tied a bow and attached to the top with my glue gun. The main image piece is a flower stamp from the Friends 24-7 stamp set and is masked and stamped repeatedly onto some water color paper with black stazon. I colored with my aqua painter using old olive, poppy parade and outlined with crumb cake ink. I matted this with poppy parade and blushing bride card stock. I added some silver pearls to the corners and made a "Hello" sentiment flag to add to the main panel. The Hello comes from the tiny teacup stamp.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for coming by today! HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
