Friends are flowers in life's garden

Have you noticed that Fiskars has a TON of new stuff? If you've been to Joann's recently, I bet you've noticed! They have a bunch of new punches and a bunch (I mean, a BUNCH) of new stamps! Right now they're on sale for 30% off too. I went to Joann's for paper trimmer blades, but they didn't have them... for the 3rd week in a row. So, I came out with stamps, lol. Funny how that works, isn't it?

I got this cute new set, called "Friendship Garden"

You can mix and match flowers, stems and vases. Plus, you can use all those other flower stamps you have with this.. too cool. I got it cause I'm always trying to draw stems and leaves, and it doesn't come out the way I want it!! So, this should help!

I used Day 56, Sketchy Sunday on 365 cards for the sketch of this card.

It is also for Color Throwdown #90. Here's the colors this week..

That green doesn't look so bad in real life! It looks pretty horrible in a picture! Oh well.

Do you like my new ribbon? It's...... burlap! Its pieces that came off piece of burlap and I was getting ready to throw it away and thought "hm... I could use this!".

I used 4 of the stamps on the stamp set and put crackle accents over the flower. Ohh how I love my crackle accents!!
