My Sunny Friend

I am just a bit sad this morning. I was expecting my son, dil, and little 2 year old munchkin to come from Georgia for a visit this weekend, but due to an accident in my dil's family and a surgery this morning, they will not be coming. Maybe they will get to come in a couple weeks. Life takes many turns and the plans of men are sometimes interrupted.

Onto my card...is this not a large sentiment? My sis gave me this stamp last week. I think it is really fun and love the flowers on the same stamp. She said it came from Michael's $ bin. I thought it would be good for the color splash at The Play Date Cafe this week. We are to use black and white with a  splash of another color found in this photo:


It was a really easy card with just scoring at the top, added some rhinestones to the flower and a ribbon. Finished!

My card is also being entered into these challenges:
Little Red Wagon #70-sentiment or greeting only (the flowers are part of the sentiment stamp)
Dream Valley Challenges #1-Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly Challenge-Anything Goes
Clear It Out Challenge-Anything Goes

Recipe:
Stamp-unknown name-Michael's $ bin
Paper: PTI white cardstock, black cardstock from Hobby Lobby
Ink: StazOn jet black
Accessories: Queen and Company rhinestones-Out to Sea, crinkled ribbon
