Good Morning Friends

Today out Friends of Flourishes Challenge is all about Layers.. thats right the more the better! 
As you can see I didnt get to many on my card. I used one of the images from the
 Beautiful Endearing Roses Set.
 My leaves look a little chlorotic but I just didnt have the right green for
 rose leaves so chlorotic it it! A lttle embossing, a die cut and its a quick layered card. 
My life doesnt allow much time these days so quick is good..
 We  would be delighted for you to join our

Happy Saturday!!!

Good Morning Friends, today it is my turn to host the Friends of Flourishes Challenge. 
It is a color challenge and since green and purple are my favorite colors that is the 
Challenge for today!! I have used two of our new release stamps, from the Thistle Set
 and the Tartan Plaid. Your can find them and all the other released in stamps
 and digis, so check out the store here. Although it doesnt show I stitched the plaid piece
 onto embossed background. Colored and cut out my flowers ,
 added the bow and sentiment. I love this new Thistle set, it has some very pretty
 corner pieces too. Of course you can take liberties and color those thistles any
 color you like too!  My teammates have some very pretty
 inspiration for you too. 
We would be delighted if you would join us this week.
