Charisma Cardz Challenge #40

Friends Are Flowers
Today's card is one I did for Charisma Cardz Card Challenge #40. The challenge was to follow a recipe of using: 1 ribbon, 3 flowers, 3 papers and one charm. I designed my card around some pretty ribbon I found at Michael's a couple of weeks ago. The ribbon has colors of black, lime green and red (which were my three paper colors too). I used three green flowers by Prima Marketing. The charm I used was a key and I hung it with some gold wire from the gold flowers and leaves by Nunn Designs. The rubber stamps are by Hampton Art.

My husband and I have had a busy afternoon. We finally finished a "do-it-yourself" lightbox. We cut the windows out of the cardboard box yesterday and my husband painted the box white. It needed to dry overnight. Today we went to Lowe's and got the lights, daylight bulbs, and white muslin (got that at Wal-Mart). The trip to Lowe's took all afternoon as we live 40+ miles away and ate out afterwards. I've set it up in a corner of our formal dining room (that never gets used). :) Now I can take pictures of my creations on cloudy days AND midnight! :) I'm very proud of our finished results.
