A Bouquet of Flowers

 Hello friends
I couldn't find my camera for a few hours and I almost panicked...
Finally it was found, hidden under a mountain of designer paper...*rolling my eyes*
I wished I could have taken this picture in full daylight,but,alas,it was not ment to be...
This cheerful card was made for a wonderful young lady who turned the big 4-0 last week.
Sheila is one of the gifted teachers I was blessed to work with in past years, specifically in her science class.
Like me,she could live on anything that is made with dark yummy chocolate,the darker the better.:o)
She adores cats, loves photograpy,reading interesting books, and gardening,amongst many other things...
Tomorrow,a couple of collegue and myself will celebrate her by taking her to a sushi place
close to where my parents live. None of the gals have been there yet,so I'm hoping it would be a great
experience for them.The decor is strictly japanese with beautiful cherry blossom
trees (evegreen..LOL..aka fake!) and young gals wearing colorful,beautiful kimonos.
It has fast become one of my favorite japanese eatery.
On to the card now.I wanted to make a flowery card, but didn't intend to make a shape card...lol
This is my original design, I saw a bought card in this shape and tried to copy it ,yet making it my own
style and this is the result.
Sheila loves flowers, and glittery,sparkling cards...so hopefully she'll enjoy what I created with her in mind.
I would love to know what YOU, my friends, think...
Meanwhile,I'm wishing  all a wonderful week end :o)
