Floret Silhouettes

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Well I have spent 7 days here in San Francisco with my precious granddaughter Phoenix Daisy. The time has gone by really quickly and we have had fun together.

She is like a little sponge just sucking up the world around her. At 16 months there is so much to investigate and learn. I am here until June 2 and there is a bond forming between us already.

I do have a card to post today. This one was made for the featured stamper challenge #274 on Splitcoaststampers. The honors this week went to Heather Telford. I wasn't familiar with her work but she has an amazing gallery.

The idea with this challenge is to select one of  the stampers card and recreate it with at least 2 changes. I chose this card of Heathers.

I used her sponging technique but in different colors. I stamped my fabulous florets silhouette and made it a separate panel-layered with certainly celery and brilliant blue cardstock.

I added a layer with Some Stampin-Up designer paper from my stash - the jersey shore collection. I also cut a flourish with a Cherry Lynn die.

Punched a butterfly to complete my card. Well my blogger friends its late and time to close this post. Until next time.........God bless
