Sentimental Sundays Flower Challenge

Happy Sunday to you all! It's time for a new challenge at Sentimenal Sundays and we want to see flowers on your creations! Be sure to visit the main blog to see what all the other designers have been up to.

Before I get to my card, I would like to let you know about a fundraiser that Ann Vento, of Raindrop Echo Designs and owner of Sentimental Sundays, has created some images for. The images are available from Kim Sherrod's website. Kim writes:
"This is a fundraiser to help my friend out at this time to help her with expenses so she can see her son. He has a heart problem and it's costly for the trip and it's financially difficult for her to travel. Help us to make it possible for her to spend some time with him. She doesn't think he's going to make it and anything will help to ease her burden during this difficult time."
Kim also adds elsewhere on her site that this will be the last time her friend sees her son. She is offering sewing patterns and Ann's Images. Here are the images that are available in both digi format and clear stamps...

I've used the images from these sets on the inside and outside of my cards. I changed the color of the silhouettes to chocolate brown. I made my flowers using the singed edge flower 2 tutorial. For the centers I added small crocheted flowers and pink rhinestone brads from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Stamps: Raindrop Echo Designs Happy Children and You are Special
Papers: My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary Little Miss Muffet, Kraft
Accessories: Handmade Beaded Stick Pin, Singed Edge Flower 2, Pink Trim
