Hello Flower


If you are looking for the Thankful For Friends Faith Blog Hop click here.
Good morning gals, I am super excited about today's card, why you ask? Well, our church sends care packages to the soldiers for Christmas and I always include handmade cards for them to send back home to love ones. I get over joyed by giving them my cards, I like knowing they have a special card to send to family and friends. Today's card is going in that pile.
If you are not playing Rachel's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, you should give it a try. I luv inspiration challenges and the cupcakes she finds to inspire us are gorgeous! I used several goodies from the Hope Stamps Eternal Store. The cuttlebug embossing folder is called Morrocan Screen and the chocolate designer paper is Basicgrey Nook & Pantry. I did a little sanding to give it a distressed look, I added a rust ribbon. The hello sentiment is from the set Inkadinkado Hello Hummingbird, I added several Zva Creative Pearls under the hello sentiment. Let me tell you about the flower it is Bella Blvd Blooms, they are cotton and the layers can be taken apart. I left this one together, since it is cotton it absorbs ink very well. I heavily sponged it with my SU Really Rust ink and then went back with a thin line of glue on the petal tips and added SU Dazzling Diamonds. It is really pretty IRL. It really makes a statement. Be sure to use the keyword CIC33 when loading to on line galleries and upload you creation to Mr Linky at Hope Stamps Eternal Blog. I hope you like my hello flower creation, enjoy your day and take time to hug someone today!
