The DIL Gina was over the other night after a long Saturday of "work" for a swim. So of course, now that I have brought her over to the "dark side" ( ;) ), she said, "MIL, can we make a card"?! Well of course I said, "heck ya"!!! 
So she had a blast making some birthday cards for friends while I worked on my convention swaps! 
Then we decided to make a card together. A good friend of ours just lost a very close friend to ALS-what a horrible disease that is.  We wanted to acknowledge our prayers & love for her with a card made from our hearts!  
Here it is!

 I just got a shipment the other day with this beautiful stamp set, 
Summer Silhouettes! I saw those flowers & knew I had to have it!!! It's soooo pretty! Tons of stamps too!  
We used the Natural White or a base, then the colors of choice were Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Gumball Green & Melon Mambo.

The paper is a scrap from Summer Smoochies

The pretty design behind the paper is actually a stamp from the set! Nice! 

 I "stippled" the tops of the blossoms with markers. Gina added the cute little yellow flowers for accent! 

The ribbon is 1/4" Night of Navy grosgrain-ok, it's retired! But it goes perfectly with the card!

 Oh, the final touch was some Dazzling Diamonds on the stipples just for accent. They don't really show up on the pic, but trust me, they're there!!!

The 2nd pic shows the envelope Gina stamped to match! 

We have fun stamping together! She actually booked her first workshop for the end of July!!!

I can see lots of possibilities for this stamp set! It's very pretty! 

That's today's card! Need any more details just let me know!

Happy Stampin'!
