Friendship is the sweetest flower


I am such a big fan of Elisabeth Bell ~ if it were possible, I think I would buy every single stamp she’s produced!!   I was really excited to see her new stamps from Ladybug & Friends, now available and in stock at 7 Kids College Fund.    This one is called  Hello Sunshine 

I was able to follow this week’s Sketch Challenge, No. 265, from SCS ~ what a great sketch!



I’m afraid the sentiment is a little too large for this card, but I really wanted to use this from an older PTI set, called Green Thumb.   So I actually did a little tweaking of the Sketch to make room for the LARGE sentiment!  And to think,  I was just having a discussion yesterday about how I really have a hard time adding a lot of embellishments to my cards, I don’t like the “busy” look.   I think this one might fit into that category!   lol

The DP is from Basic Grey Origins collection.   The image was colored with Copics, cut out and attached with dimensionals.    Here’s a photo which I’m hoping you can see the layers a little better …


Be sure to check out ALL the new Elisabeth Bell images from Ladybug & Friends, I think I’ll take one of each!   🙂
