to you from me

I've used a freebie sentiment from Paulette at Create with TLC, and then the inspiration came from there. I added minimum colour to the sentiment digi so as to blend with the main flower image. I used PTI "in bloom" set stamped onto black and white polka dot paper for the flower and onto green and white for the leaves. I left a comment this morning on someone's blog saying I preferred one card over another because I don't like stripes with flowers-now look what I went and did!!!
I'm entering this into Allsorts challenge- for a special lady. This card is for my neighbour who does lots of kind things for me and is a very special friend.

I love this Lynn. That`s a gorgeous huge flower and looks great stamped on dotty paper. I think it depends on the stripes...

My Mum used to say that red and green should never be seen but where would Christmas be if that were true. I think its great to break the rules we have in our head and your card is lovely, Lynn.
