For a Special Friend!

This card is for today's SCS Inspiration Challenge(IC203)! Here is my inspiration picture. This card is also for Mercy's sketch challenge(MTSC44)! I turned the sketch.

Today I am showcasing for you a stamp set from the
Sweet 'n Sassy store called Special Women. I love this set. The flower is fantastic and the sentiments are wonderful.

I have a new background technique I would like to tell you about. I am using it for the background panel in this card. More later!!!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!!! Your comments are greatly appreciated!!!
