I had a great time with Arjan and Thijs as we took off on our boat down to the Keys again..making the most of Arjan having a whole weekend off...which doesn't happen very often. We enjoyed the sunshine and ocean once more and the weather was terrific. We definately need to do this again....soon!!

My card for this weeks challenge is using one of Sue's digi stamps, called "Wild Flower" and I have to say I colored many of these flowers in!! They are so easy to work with but just so pretty when colored too. I colored mine with prismacolored pencils and gamsol.....My first time using this! It was an experiment but I'm sure you will let me know if you think I used it correctly!
I printed out a few wild flowers in various sizes, colored them then cut each one out, layered them with pop dots and put a small group of them together. I love how this card came out, the colors were not planned ahead but just fell into place after I saw the colors of the flowers. I stitched my background paper, added three different ribbons, a metal flower charm and hand cut flourish to the bow. Added the gems at the corner and there you have it...my MMSC14 card!
