Flower Fest Frienship Card

Thursday night at Stamp Till You Cramp, Sharon and I worked on this card.  It was one of those inspiration card.  I saw a card on Vicki's "It's a Stamp Thing" blog and I liked the upper part of the card. Well, I liked the lower part of the card too but I didn't want to do them together.  Plus I didn't have all the "stuff" to do the bottom part. 

I am not sure the size of her card.  It appeared to be longer than my card.  But then again the oval on my card is bigger so who knows the size of the card. Ok, I'm sure Vicki knows!! LOL

Anyway, this is what we came up with.  We used Cherry Cobbler card stock instead of the Poppy Parade.  I would have liked to use the Poppy Parade but I didn't have any decorative papers that would match so I went with the Cherry Cobbler and I liked it just fine.

I did the wording on the computer.  I had downloaded the "All Holidays" word images and I was able to scale it down a bit to fit in the oval.  The stamp image was just a bit too big.  

We arranged the flowers but felt that something was missing from the bottom of the oval.  We set pearls there but they just didn't do it, nor did the rhinestones.  I took out a small paper punch and punched out a bunch of black pieces and set them in place around the oval.  After a lot of moving them around this is what I came up with and I liked it.  It was just what the oval needed. 

The flowers were pretty but I thought they could use a bit of sparkle so I covered up all the paper around them and used the "Vanilla Shimmer" Smooch Spray and gave each flower a shot!  I removed the protective papers and was very pleased at the final outcome.

It's such a pretty card and Vicki had a great concept going there!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
