I loved Mercy's sketch this week so set about making a card for fun!  Here's the final result:

I used Verve Visual's Dream Big set for the flowers and a freebie "Thanks" stamp.  The flowers were stamped in PTI's Berry Sorbet and the edges were highlighted with PTI's Pure Poppy.  I edged the flowers and nestie in Antique Linen Distress Ink; the DP and other layers were sponged with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.

The two smaller flowers were cut out and adhered with dimensionals; I added a PTI Spring Rain button in the middle threaded with black hemp.  The pearls were purchased from Sharon Johnson (No Time To Stamp); they are called Bliss and are the lightest, most beautiful blue.

Thanks for popping in; hope you're having a great weekend!  We're headed to the hockey game tonight, then tomorrow I'll need to work for a few hours so I can tolerate Monday - LOL!

Hugs, ~M.
