A Friend is someone

Hello Blog Friends

I am so surprised it's already mid-summer (as always, the time is slipping by). The flowers are blooming and it's been really warm in my area.

And in this heat, the weeds are growing, too. You know, when it's snowing, those darned weeds still grow at least in my yard they do. What a battle they pose. I guess it could be worse, we could have no flowers or any vegetation at all. OK, that might be called the desert and I'm not sure I would like that. LOL

Well since we're talking about flowers, I thought I'd share with you a card I made for Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends. Their newest challenge (challenge #62) starts today and will go on til Fri, July 14. You have plenty of time to submit an entry and the theme is always Anything Goes. And the sponsor for the challenge is Bugaboo.

Here is my card

Love this sentiment and the doodled flowers are so pretty

This image was so much fun to color 
and I decided to pop those larger blooms up just to add some dimension.

 The DP behind the image is really a piece of my Gelli Plate artwork. I made a bunch of these a while back and have them ready when the right project needs a background. I have loads in all color combos just waiting for the perfect project.

My bow is a simple bow - loops that are stair-stepped and a piece of ribbon wrapping around the center, for the knot. I used grosgrain and it was perfect for this card.
 Grosgrain usually is too thick to make a traditional bow,
but it worked great for this type of a bow on my card. 
I wanted a skinny bow on the side of the card and thought this ribbon as the perfect size.

Stamps:  digital - Bugaboo - Friend Flower Doodles
Paper/Card Stock
: Light Blue CS, White CS
Ink: None
AccessoriesRibbon, Dimensional foam, Spectrum Noir - Various Colors, My handmade Gelli Plate papers from my stash, Craft-Dee BowZ tool

I am submitting my card in the following challenges:

I hope you liked my project. Don't forget to link a project in the current challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends. And the theme is always Anything Goes. Thanks so much for stopping by today and I’ll see you soon!
