Flowers at FOSTV

The challenge starting today for Friends of Speedy TV located at Home of Speedy TV is 'flowers'.
I think just about everyone loves flowers and we hope you'll join us this week. Maybe you could be the winner of this stamp set we're giving away for challenge #17. It is Dogwood Blossoms.



I decided to do my card in cream, white, and brown. I made my chevrons with an EK Success zig zag chain punch and placed a sentiment on top made with the smallest Spellbinders circle nestabilitie and the scalloped circle.

I stamped my images from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company Sending Happy Thoughts set and just left uncolored. Sometimes, I just like that look.

I used the sketch challenge SC295 from Splitcoaststampers.
