Blooming Bouquet

This beautiful bouquet of flowers was a "free" gift with purchase from Mabelle over at Whimsy and Starslast week - she has the mostest cutest digi images as well as some red rubber too. This was fun to color with my copic markers, cut out with nesties, then I used some DP I had in my stash from Stampin Up from a "long" time ago. Punched out some swirls trimmed them with pearls and the card was almost finished. I purchased a simple pack of sentiments by hero Arts at a new stamp store in Kimmswick, Mo. - they were clear stamps and the thing I love about clear is you can twist, curve, stamp them just about any way you want, as you can see I curved mine to fit the oval. This card will go to one of my chemo ladies that has "graduated" which is wonderful as she no longer needs my encouragement but sad because I will miss her. I bought a butterfly hankie a while back and the card and hankie will be my farewell giftie to a super lady.

Your image turned out so beautifully, and the curved image is perfect! Your sweet graduated lady will be tickled to receive it and the hanky! You are always so sweet-doing something for others all the time! DD sure loved her card! Have a great day :)
