Life without a ...

Hello my friends, my Mojo is back!! LOL. I've been dealing with lack of creativity and I don't like those days. Today is a very easy day :) I have the day off and DD is volunteering at my friend's church, isn't she sweet? She is helping planting flowers. So I decided to let my creativity flows and it did indeed.

I have 1 card for 4 challenges!
So, here are the details about my card. I started with a piece of Ivory CS. I matted and distressed a piece of Sweet corn and Chocolate Dots (Out & About Collection), then I stitched them. I stamped the sentiment from "Friends" set (Gina K) on a piece of Ivory, cut and emboss with Rectangle Nestabilities, then I sponged the inside borders. My favorite part is the flowers. I followed CeeCee Tutorial, super easy and fun! She used different flowers, but I tried it with Prima flowers, just be careful not to spray the flowers too much because it will lose its form and consistency. Finally I added ribbon behind the flower and adheres it to my card.
Final size card: 4 1/4 square.
