First off I would like to apologize for my extended absence.  I have been super busy with the end of the school year.  I only have 7 more days until summer vacation.  I do have to work some during the summer, but I am lucky enough to pick when and how long.  I have to say I am looking forward to sleeping in and having my stamping time back. Okay enough of my blabbering you are here to see my card.  I made this one for several challenges listed below.  The one that got me started on this card was the one for Speedy The Cat's challenge to put a 3D flower on your creation.  For my flower I used three different sizes of marvy flower punches stacked them all together held  together with a brad  and them misted them with water and scrunched the petals up and waited for it to dry.  I was able to visit with my mom over the weekend and we played around with her stamps.  The leaves are from Mark's Finest Papers set Autumn Fun and the sentiment is from Natures Postage. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous rest of the week.
