Hello Everyone,

For today I am playing along with Just Us Girls color challenge. It is all about blue, which happens to be my favorite color. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I used two new things from Christmas on this card.
I got bleeding tissue paper (love) and the flower stamp by
Technique Junkies.

Sentiment proves to be a perfect fit for the recipient.
Detail of the flowers.
They were sponged using white pigment ink over an embossed image.
the center of the flowers I chose to sponge in a bit more blue. 
Entering Challenge:
Just Us Girls: Color Week- #326

I just spoke with my friend today and she announced that she is adopting not one but two children. I am so happy and my heart is singing praises and joy for her and her family! I think this card will be a perfect congratulatory card just for her.

Thank you so much for joining me today and please pray for my friend as this is not final quite yet. Take care and see you soon!

All the best,
