Friends are the flowers of life

I know I keep saying it, but time is just flying by! I just cannot believe it's now the middle of July! It really WILL be Christmas before we know it! ;)

I'd like to share with you my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for Challenge #10 - Just A Bit Sketchy! Come play with us! I have always loved following sketches... cards just seem to go together flawlessly! We're using this awesome Starry Nights Studio Sketch 3!

We're being sponsored by the amazing Delicious Doodles! They graciously provided us with several images to play with, and I chose the absolutely gorgeous Floral Watering Can digi for my friendship card. The supply list is not large at all - in addition to coloring the image with a few Copics, I used three coordinating papers from the enormous Recollections Bold Basics paper pad, a Cheery Lynn French Pastry doily die cut, some green ribbon and green flat-back pearls. I'm so pleased with how it turned out!

  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury white cardstock; Colorbok textured blue cardstock
  • 3 coordinating papers from the Recollections Bold Basics paper pad
  • Delicious Doodles Floral Watering Can digital image
  • Copics: YR04/09, Y17, G14, BV11/13, C1/3
  • Cheery Lynn French Pastry doily die
  • Sentiment stamp from the Prima Divine Collection
  • Memento Gray Flannel dew drop ink
  • Green ribbon from stash
  • Want2Scrap green flat-back pearls

I paper pieced three of the daisies to give the bouquet just a little dimension. :)
