Sending Blessings

I have friends that recently had a loss, and I wanted to make them a card.

 I thought this floral bouquet- which is a precolored digi from Sparkle and Sprinkle was beautiful and decided to use it for my card.
 This view shows some of the sparkle.  The sentiment, by Create with TLC, has an oval that I covered with Sparkle and Sprinkle Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter behind it.  I added additional shimmer using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
 The cardstock is SU Groovy Guava.

Challenges:
Bloggers Challenge- B is for....Blossoms/Bouquet and Blessings

Delighted to see what you've done with this sweet floral digi. I purchased the stamp set when at SnS at Christmas, and it's still a NBUS. It's a wonderful & happy image, and I love the way you've colored those blooms to be so cheerful. It's great to have a pretty pre-colored image to mat up as you've done with the circle & scallops, and the background dp's flower design goes so nicely. Just a lovely card. TFS & Happy Sunday.

I was re-reading your post. I obviously skipped over the pre-colored part. :-P. (I didn't want you to think I didn't read it and I didn't realize the colored images looked that good.) I know your friend will love it. The added sparkle really makes everything pop. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

So gorgeous! Love the dp you chose to go perfectly with the colored image. I'm sure it will be so appreciated by your friends in their time of sorrow.
