Timeless Tuesday 125

First of all I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July.  We didn't do anything special for the day.  I did buy my  son some of the little ground fireworks like tanks, parachutes, and some spinning eyeballs, plus a great little box that shot tons of colors out for over a minute.  That was a shocker.  He enjoys them a lot!

It is time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge and it is my week to hostess.  I am challenging you to make a card for a friend across the miles or nearby. The card must have the word FRIEND in the sentiment.



I really wanted to color these Gerber Daisies a peachy color, but was lacking in that department for colored papers, so I used yellow and turquoise.  Can you tell I still had this gingham paper on my desk from yesterday?  Ha!




I used the set from Flourishes called Gerber Daisies.  The pretty Cotton Linen ribbon can be found HERE.  They have several colors and I plan on tea staining some, I bet it will be beautiful.  I used the Copic collection called Sunflowers from the Flourishes store as well. 

I used the fabulous sketch from Sketchbook Saturday that fellow BBB design team mate Cupa has for you to use.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather
