If friends were flowers …



…  I’d probably cover them in Flower Soft!!!     🙂        I just can’t get enough of this stuff!     I FINALLY had a chance to use the new Wisteria paper from Basic Grey…every piece is so gorgeous!   I thought this background piece matched perfectly with this adorable Magnolia image ~ Tilda Picking Lilacs, from the Chasing Butterflies Collection.

Tilda with Lilacs

Tilda picking Lilacs

The blue Flower Soft color I had planned to use for this card was just a little too blue compared to the DP and Tilda’s dress, so I combined two colors ~ Baby Blue and Lavender to make it a little less “blue”.  I also used Ivory Flower Soft to again match the DP.

I'd pick you

I'd pick you

Thank you for dropping in today.  Hope your day is going well!
