A Flower for Mimi

DSCF7325

Happy Friday, everyone! DH & I were away for a couple of days, so it is good to be home and back in my stamp room! My SIL’s birthday is Sunday; I just finished her card this afternoon, so guess what—it’s going to be LATE! Oh well! I chose a stamp set that I haven’t used for a while, Flowers for Daisy, by Asela Hopkins, and incorporated it into Mercy’s Sketch #66, shown here:

I stamped the image twice, colored them with SU markers, and popped up the second flower at an angle to the first one---I love the effect! Some Pink Flamingo DP gave me the color inspiration, and since the Stampin’ Royalty challenge this week is to use glitter, I added some DD to the center of my flower to glitz it up a bit! You can see it better here:

Thanks for stopping by today!
