Special Friend

Happy Wednesday, sparkly friends! I'm fluttering in with the start of a new challenge at 7 Kids College Fund! The theme is always Anything Goes and the winner will receive a generous gift certificate to the store.♥️

I created a card for a treasured friend, showcasing some newer additions to the store from Wild Orchid Crafts, Wycinanka, and Pion Design. So many dreamy product lines.♥️
My friend is everything beautiful with a heart of pure gold and I want to remind her how special she is to me.♥️The gorgeous papers are from Pion Design's Where the Roses Grow, including the stunning vintage lady. She is centered within Wycinanka's lovely Charming Oval Frame, which I covered in crackle paste.
I'm ecstatic that Kelly and Karen are now offering Wild Orchid Crafts flowers! The sweet arrangements throughout my card consist of English Roses, Chrysanthemums, Plum Roses, Vintage Roses, Cherry BlossomsMiniature Sweetheart Blossoms, and Bead Berry Spray Cluster.
Sunflower Pearl Lace beautifully ruffles along the bottom, which I paired with crinkle ribbon from DL.Art's Coffeehouse Bundle 3. The stunning die cut frame atop my card is Sue Wilson's Delicate Garden. Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful Flourishes frolic within the flowers. 

I hope she enjoys this little gift as much as I enjoyed creating it for her. Be sure to check out the delightful inspiration from my teamies and play along for a chance to win a gift certificate to 7 Kids! Thank you for visiting and have a sparkly day.♥️
