Basic Grey and Crafty Secrets

Happy Friday, everyone!  I know that for those of you who work during the week, Friday is always a special day.  I know my son is happy today because once his schoolwork is finished for the day, he has the weekend to kick back and relax.  I hope you're enjoying your day whatever you're doing.  I chose to spend the early hours of this morning making a little card using some Basic Grey Lemonade patterned papers, and a Crafty Secrets image.  I wanted to use one of these beautiful images from Crafty Secrets and let you all the know that Crafty Secrets will be sponsoring our challenge next week at Word Art Wednesday, and someone will win a $40 gift certificate to their darling store.  I used an image from their Spring Printables, which I ran off on a piece of canvas.  I just love how it looks.  I wish I hadn't inked the edges.  I need to finish a few wedding cards for an ordering I'm trying to get filled, and so....this is one of them.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
 
Basic Grey Challenge Blog - Challenge #89 - Spring Is In The Air - I used Basic Grey Lemonade patterned papers and a Basic Grey lazer-cut sheet for part of the border at the bottom.
 
Simon Says Stamp and Show Vintage Challenge Blog - Chic To Be Shabby Challenge

The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog - Challenge #48 - Romantic Elegance

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge Blog - Challenge #68 - Flowers and Ribbon
 
Thanks for stopping by today.  I appreciate your visit, and I look forward to visiting your blogs.
 
Blessings,
Karen
