Pretty Little Dahlia

Well, it's Thursday, and by the time you read this I should be in Florida. Holy moly, did I really just leave my inlaws with four kiddos for 48 hours?! Hope things are going smoothly for them.

I'm also planning to mail this card in to the Greeting Farm's !st TGF cares charity card drive for the Ronald McDonald house. This cause is near and dear to me. I was a pediatric nurse before I "retired" to raise my little ones. I know the benefit and importance of Ronald McDonald houses. Check out the card drive at the Greeting Farm, it runs until April 30th, so you've got time if you would like to participate.

Also entering this one in KLSNS24. Kelly has a recipe challenge this week. It is a 1-2-3 challenge. One image and/or sentiment (I used both), two patterned papers, and 3 embellies (ribbon, Bella dots, and primas). This was a fun one. I usually use one patterned paper at most. lots of times I just use cardstock. Fun challenge for me.

Thanks for dropping by today.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: TGF Dahlia, sentiment Hanna Stamps
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black
Paper: PTI ssw, Barely Banana, Green Galore, MME patterns
Embellishments: copics, nesties, Bella dots, primas, SU ribbon, dimensionals, copic spica pen
