If Friends were Flowers I'd Pick You

This card was created using Color My Heart Color Dare #162; however didn't seem happy after two different attempts of a card:  (1)  to use either Paper Sweeties "Abigail" or (2) masking some pretty floral flowers along a border.  Couldn't decide what to do with either attempt and the Color Dare's clock was running down...had to do something.  I sent a photo to my daughter's phone showing both attempts, side by side.  She suggested to change her dress to the same blue as the flower...I did, along with all the other colors, so that she could hide in the flowers, sneak up on anyone coming through the garden and surprise them.  Now I could complete my card (below see the picture of Abigail's first may see that one in a future card.)

Sue, she's precious! I love, love, love all those pretty flowers on the side and the way the blue in them matches her dress is just perfect! Love your card - and also love your blog. You now have another follower!

Hi Sue,

Thank you for both of your messages today, at BBTB2 and at my blog. Yes, we will bring the challenges back - probably next week. We have been brainstorming ways to increase our participation. I too missed the link this week. So... give us a few more days and hopefully we will be back to normal at BBTB2.

Thank you for your interest and feedback!!!!
