Flowers For You and a WINNER!

Happy Fall! I spent some the weekend without inking up a single stamp! That doesn't happen often!! Friday I spent some time outside with the kids. We raked and they jumped in the leaves. It was such a beautiful day! Saturday found us painting and putting up a new wallpaper border in my daughter's room...she loves it! Today we rested!!
I made this card recently. The base is white, I like using white bases....they lend a crispness to the card. The designer paper is from Sommerst Studio...free stuff from Take Ten I think. Flowers are by prima, ricrac by Walmart, Butterfly Punch by Martha Stewart, gems by Mark Richards. For You is by Serendipity Stamps and Flower Stamp is by SU! To color the flowers I used SU! markers: Certainly Celery, Taken With Teal and Tempting Turqoise. I started with the celery and added some of the darker colors for accents. I layered the stamped panel on white for a very subtle *frame.*


And....for the winner of the RAK...it's Retired Heather!! Sorry I'm slow in posting this.....I've been too busy knocking things of my To Do List this weekend! Email me your address....I'm not sure I still have it Heather! More blog candy coming soon as I close in on my one year bloggervesary and 20,000 hits! Thanks to each of you for stoppin by!
