More challenge - Friends are flowers

Just got back from a relaxing farm holiday and itching to do some craft!

First stop was Scrapbook Boutique to see how the pink, brown and white challenge is going. So many more have joined in and the one by Sue really grabbed me. Her entry took me to her blog which led me to CASE study, a blog for challenges drawing on inspiration from the month's muse design team. How clever!.

My inspirations/challenges for this card:

Here's what I just did and I'll enter it to both challenges.

While I was making this card, a family friend dropped by and gave us a tray of lasagne. Actually, it's a birthday present for Megan who requested for it; flippantly, I must add. Remembering that we were coming home from our holiday today, this friend dropped it off thoughtfully as a present and an effortless dinner for us. What a friend! So, the story of this card is not so much about the techniques or even the challenges but the lovely friend who will soon receive this handmade card.  Friends are flowers in the garden of life. She's the true inspiration in the end.


  1. A wonderful story, Malyn! I'm sure your friend will love your card! Thanks so much for playing with us this week :)

  2. Well I'll bet your friend will love your card! I love the inking of your embossing folder - what a cool technique!
    Thanks for playing along with us on CASE study!

  3. Beautiful! Soft, elegant colors and wonderful embossing! Thanks for playing along with us at CASE Study!

  4. Love that embossed panel. :) so pretty! Thanks for playing along with the CASE study challenge, what fun to be their sponsor this week!

  5. It seems as we have more things in common than the blogging challenge. I don't spend that much time with my papers and cards right now though ... I really like your cards! I think I'll hang around a while and enjoy myself!
