Friendship Warms The Heart!

Hi Friends!

I would like to share with you a card I made for a
challenge over at The Ribbon ReelWe were to use
the colors pink, aqua and yellow.  Also, a flower and
ribbon are to be added to the card/project.  What a
fabulous inspiration photo to get the creative
juices flowing....

For my card I started with a cream card base and some
papers from SU and Prima.  I used a banner die from
MFT.  The  sentiment stamp is from
Friendship Warms My Heart stamp set from Paper Sweeties!
The bicycle is from Hero Arts and I prettied it up a bit
by coloring the flowers with copics and adding gems.
The sweet little yellow flowers are from Prima.  Ribbon
and twine to finish off the card.

You must go over to the The Ribbon Reel to check out
the design team projects!  I truly was so inspired this
week by admiring their gorgeous creations!

Well, off to finish cleaning the house, etc.  We have
friends coming over.  I just got a yummy carrot cake
out of the oven and letting it cool.
smells divine!  OK, thank you so much for
dropping by!  Take care and have a wonderful
weekend, hugs!
