Friend, CTD344 & FMS188

Happy Saturday, stampers! I hope you all have a nice weekend planned. Mine is going to be pretty busy and I wasn't planning on a post today, but a new stamp set was waiting to be inked up and there were a few challenges that were calling my name! 

The challenges that I'm playing along with today are the color challenge at Color Throwdown, the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and the inspiration challenge at the Ellen Hutson Classroom.

The pretty blossoms and leaves were cut with the Bold Blossom Stand Alone Dies by Ellen Hutson. I wanted to give the blooms a little more glam, so I coated them a few times with Wink of Stella. I love that stuff! The gorgeous sentiment is also from Ellen Hutson and is called Amazing Women.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Amazing Women (Ellen Hutson)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Crisp Canteloupe (SU)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools: Big Shot, Bold Blossom Stand Alone Dies (Ellen Hutson)
Accessories: Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp), Wink of Stella (Zig)

Thanks for visting today, and I'd be so happy if you left me a comment!

Your card is just beautiful Sandy, I love the simple yet elegant design and the subtle touch of bling with the sequences. The sentiment is really touching, thank you for providing the "recipe" on how you created this lovely card.
Many paper hugs.
