Virginia's View Impromptu Link-up Party!

Hello, and yeah for Friday!

I actually had some time to craft last night, seriously, it's been forever! Virginia offered up a fun, impromptu challenge earlier this month, to create a friendship card, and I needed to make a card for a friend going through some hard times.

I started with a white card base, and sponged on some blue ink. I then started stamping the flowers, and leaves from Altenew's Peony Bouquet, and die cut them out.

I clustered my images into a an arrangement I liked, and adhered them down with tape runner, and foam.

It was then that I realized I hadn't done my sentiment, and that it couldn't be black, that wouldn't match with all the gold going on! So, I took a big chance and gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Beautiful Day set. Luckily, it didn't warp that bad, but phew! It pays to think ahead! lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
