FS168 Gloria's Tree

I've been trying all week to finish this card, however, other family things took priority. But tomorrow, I have a vacation day from work to play, shop and otherwise goof off. So I stayed up late tonight and did some blogging, craft site viewing and finishing this past Sunday's Featured Stamper's challenge.

It was a special Sunday because my Shabby Chic blog sister, Gloria {see sidebar}, was chosen as the featured stamper. It's not hard to figure out why when you see her amazing gallery and follow her blog.

I chose this card to case. Originally, I started with the Basic Gray Origins paper and I have some matching felt flowers; I was going to add them like Gloria did, but, well... you know how that goes...my idea just didn't look like I imagined, so I took another approach. I still think you can see Gloria's card reflected.

Congrats again, Gloria!

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes(SU!), Tree (Studio g-Hampton Art)
