Sweet Friend Card

Hello again! It seems like this week has been dragging along so slowly, but we are now on the edge of the weekend!! I have been trying to get in gear working on things in the craft building. Made a few cards, painted a couple of candle sconces, started on a present for Mom for Mother's Day and oh yea, rearranged the whole craft building again! lol Seems like I just can't get it exactly how I pictured it in my head. I think I finally have all the big pieces where they will stay. Now to just finish organizing and labeling everything so I can find stuff.

I was looking at Melissa Phillip's blog again the other day and she had this card posted. Is it not darling? I love the layout, so I cased it. I just can't help myself, lol.

 I think I have an addiction to adding flowers to all my cards. They just seem like a natural choice for a focal point to me. I am also addicted to lots of layers. I guess I just don't like simple, flat cards.
The more layers and elements, the better! That's why I love Melissa's style. Her cards have so many details. She puts things together that I would have never thought of.

see all those layers? love :)

Here's a list of stuff I used on this card:
Paper: K&Co Wild Raspberry Paper Pack, SU! card stock
Ink: SU! Creamy Caramel, Real Red
Stamps: SU! Great Friend
Accessories: SU! punch, Spell Binders scallop die cut, ribbon, button, pink pearl strand, sewing machine

Well that's all for me tonight. Until next time....
Hugs and Happy Craftin'!
