You are a Blessing - And a Challenge

No,'re not a challenge!  I just couldn't resist combining the sentiment from my card, with the statement that I created this card for a challenge.  Ok.  Lame.

So. Moving on.
I found a new-to-me challenge and the colors in the challenge photo were SO pretty, that I had to play along.  Take a look at the inspiration photo from the City Crafters Challenge Week 166 - Cooling Down.
Ahhhhhh.  See what I mean?

So, I created this.

I used one of my favorite Spellbinders dies for this card.  That edge reminds me of a trellis, so flowers seemed like an appropriate theme.  Yes, like I need an excuse to use flowers on a card, right?
I added a little glimmer to the roses with my clear stardust glitter pen.  It's very pretty in real life.  But, I just couldn't get it to show up in a photo.
This card came together quickly and it was fun.  :)
Thanks so much for stopping in for a look!
