You are Like a Flower

Today my good stamping buddy and fellow Doubledog Dare challenge team member Joan Ervin was the Featured Stamper on Split Coast and I chose her silhouette wishes card to case.

I used a different designer paper, a different stamp set and tied a knot in my ribbon instead of a bow - but I used her layout and color scheme. I like how she cut off the bottom on the sentiment circle.

My flower silhouette and sentiment stamps are from a newly released flower set by H&M Stamps called Seeds of Kindness.

Well - I've doodled around long enough today - I think I have to finally get out in the yard and do some more mulching!

Thanks so much for dropping by!

Ooooo, pretty!! I like that the circle is cut off, too! The sentiment is very nice - is that in the stamp set, or did you create it on the computer?? Maybe I could do it on the computer?

I re-read the post - you already answered my question (silly me!). I'm blaming my poor reading skills on my headache today.

Beautiful, Julia! I'm not seeing any cards in the FS gallery, so I'm trying to check out blogs instead. What a bummer for Joan that SCS has to have troubles on her special day.
