Smiles & Laughter...................you've got a friend

Every month I participate in a challenge on the Cricut Message board using Prisma (or something similar) and Odorless Mineral Spirits, this is one of my favorite  techniques for coloring images.    It was also such a perfect image for the The Cuttlebug Challenge this week as you were to make a card that made you happy, using one of your favorite techniques and send it to a friend "just because".   I have my BFF that I don't get to see a lot so I will send her this card.

So the images on the left side of the card I colored using the MCPT, then I added Stickles to the center of the flowers, I also added Glossy Accents right on top of the Stickles before it dried so it gave the centers a sparkly dimensional center. 
I mounted the image on a pink piece of paper and then pop dotted it to the card, I added some small pink circle stickers to the corners.  I added a bow I tied (this one I did LOL) from sheer pink ribbons, there is also a strip of the ribbon across the entire card but you can't see it in the picture.  The background plaid paper is from DCWV Flower Shower stack. 
Here is a close up of the flowers and you can see that strip of ribbon.

 AND....................I did the inside I will write a personal note in here for my friend, hope she doesn't visit my blog and see her surprise! 

I know this card has Spring colors in it but I loved the way it looked with the plaid paper colors.  Not that I want Spring to come back, we are all waiting for our FALL weather to show up, we are still in the 100s here in Arizona and breaking records, please Mother Nature let up on us, LOL 
I hope you like my card, let me know what you think.

This is a very sweet card! I was disappointed that you didn't mention what the stamps were that you used... Do you mind sharing? Thank you!

thanks Jennifer for your kind comments and for digging back into the archives of my blog to look around. I do not know the name or where this image is from unfortunately. I used to be in a coloring challenge where I was mailed a stamped image each month to color. I believe it was a stamp and not a digital image.
