Super Excited and Honored to Guest Design

Good Morning! I was beyond thrilled and excited when Liz from Liz's Paper Loft asked me to Guest Design on her blog. I know I don't have to tell you all how creative, talented and sweet she is! We share a common love ~ houndstooth! Anyway ~ Liz is recovery from surgery. Please make sure you leave her some love and encouraging words to lift her spirits. I am sure they will brighten her day!
So for my card today I wanted to use a color I generally don't work with! So I chose to use the color orange. My son LOVES this color and is always asking me to make something orange. So I thought to myself ~ why not! I made this card for a friend who has been under the weather lately and I hope this lifts her spirits!
I just got the Flower Shoppe cartridge and have yet to really play with it. If you have been to my blog before ~ I LOVE flowers! I think they are so beautiful and fun to work with. Plus I really need Spring to come ...FAST! After I finished my card, I realized it has Halloween written all over it! But I have to say, I really like how this turned out despite that fact! LOL!

Materials Used:
Cricut Cartridge ~ Flower Shoppe ~ cut @ 3 1/2
My Creative Time ~ Script Type Backgrounds ~ background and flowers
My Creative Time ~ Teeny Tag Greetings  w/ Teeny Tag Dies ~ dies and sentiments
 Paper ~ Paper Trey Ink and Recollections
Stampin Up and Stazon Ink
Ribbon ~ Paper Trey Ink
