Friendship Lightens Every Burden


If you are looking for my HUGE GIVEAWAY, please click HERE.

Hello everyone and Happy Monday!
The sun is shining here in the Vancouver area again so, I'm in a cheery mood today!

I decided to make a last minute card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC155).  The theme this past week was "Fly Away With Me".  So, in other words, the girls at Flourishes wanted to see us use bird elements on our projects.

Here is what I came up with:

I used the Sweet Days of Summer stamp set from Flourishes with SU! Basic Gray Classic ink.  I LOVE the summery and carefree feel that this set evokes.  It makes me feel like a child again!  The patterned paper is from the MME Lost & Found 2 Sunshine 6x6 paper pad; How suitable!  I chose these papers because I felt that the golden yellows and soft blues symbolized sunshine and water two of the most important icons of both summer and childhood.  I finished this card off with some Natural Hemp Twine from CTMH and a Vintage Button in Lemon Tart from PTI.

I drew inspiration from Iwona Palamountain aka. Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Sketch #49:

Anyway, I hope you liked what you saw!  I'll be back again tomorrow with a challenge from Paper and Such!
