Flowers...

Any day without playing in a challenge is a day without sunshine! I created this card to meet the Wee Memories challenge, which is to use writing...any kind of writing...on your card, the Secret Crafter challenge, and the Lots to Do challenge, both of which are friendship, Theme Thursday's challenge, which is vintage, and Play Date Cafe, with such a wonderful colour scheme.
This beautiful peony is a digital image from the incredibly talented Kathy at Vintage Catnip. I printed it twice, in different sizes, distressed the edges, overstamped foliage (all Hero Arts stamps, some in green chalk ink, some gold embossed), and stamped the sentiment (also Hero Arts) on vellum. I'm just tickled pink with the way this turned out.

It's a lovely Friday here, coolish (but just the way I like it!). We have company coming for dinner, then we're all going dancing! Wishing you a happy, creative weekend, doing whatever you love best...
