Suzy B's Blooming Challenge Blog Challenge #46 - Anything Goes with Blooms

This week at Suzy B's Blooming Challenge Blog our wonderful sponsor is Sparkle N Sprinkle. Of course it's Anything Goes but this week with a twist - with blooms!!!!! 

For my Design Team project, I chose Old Friends. This reminded me of my pal and partner in crime, Rosie! We have said that we're going to have to share a room in an old folk's home but to make sure there is room for our crafting supplies! When we get together, we have a great time just laughing and sharing stories of how our week has gone. Also, the joke is that she is shorter than I am and when we worked at JoAnn Fabrics together, I used to tease her that it would only take 2 yards to make a skirt for her because she was short! P.S. she always loves to wear a red hat in the winter also . . . .

  • DCWV The Crafty Stack is the base for my card and was cut 6 x 12 inches
  • backgrounds are from my stash with the polka dot ones with rounded corners
  • Old Friends was colored with Whispers Strokes with gel accents and chalked around the rounded edges
  • flower were cut using Cricut Plantin Cartridge, page 76 at .75 inches with white Recollection cardstock and then chalked around the edges
  • Queen and Co. pearls were added to the centers of my flowers in various shades
  • sentiment, "If you have CRAZY FRIENDS you have everything", had been a freebie at Create with TLC and was chalked around the rounded edges - now, how purrrfect is that for a sentiment???
  • Martha Stewart Vine punch was used with DCWV The Girly Stack for the vine and then split apart to make a border frame
