Just For You

Happy Thursday...the weekend is almost here...yahhh!

The papers I chose for today's card is from the Cosmo Cricket "Early Birds" pack, and it is absolutely my fave!  

The bg Chocolate cardstock and that ribbon/bow looks black, but I assure you, it is a dark-brown.  I played around with photo editing and it ended up too dark...oopsie!

My girlfriend let me browse her stamp collection 
(oh yeah, she makes cards too!), and I saw this little darling flower from Stampin' Up! that I thought would go great with this layout.

I stamped it in SU! Old Olive (stem), and the petals in Memento Tuxedo Black, then colored it in with my Prisma Watercolor Pencils and then blended it all together.  I added foam-adhesives to pop it up, and that little black pearl to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by today!
