Hello Friend

It's not very often that I say I really like one of my cards. (I can tend to be my own worst critic, I fear.) However... I really like this card. 
I love the color scheme - the coral and black really go together well and of course the contrast of white makes it more eye-catching.

I love flowers - well, I love coloring them. We don't grow any flowers since I'm gone too much to keep them watered and tended, plus I don't like playing in dirt. These flowers are from the Spellbinders Peonies Blessings stamp set. I cut them out with my Scan n' Cut.

And then there's that amazing background made with the My Favorite Things Bold Stripe Cover Up Die. Two more dies - the Brush Script Hello from Frantic Stamper (one of my treasures from the year I served on their design team) and the Friend die from My Favorite Things.

I hope I'm not the only one who likes this card. I especially hope the friend I've already mailed it to likes it.

Here's a wee peek of the inside, 
with another flower from the stamp set 
stamped in the corner:

Indeed this is a beautiful card. I just held a package of coral to get at another colour and I got thinking that i didnt use it in a very long time. The coral against the black stripes looks terrific.

The cameo coral looks stunning with your black and white stripes, Jeanette!! This card is gorgeous!
