Counting My Blessings

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood here at
The Open Window and I am sure glad you stopped by.
I am continuing the fun over at Skipping Stones Design
as one of the September Guest Designers

Here is the beautiful sketch we are working with today

 and I couldn't wait to break out my new flowers from Prima

Actually...the flowers and paper are both from Prima's new
'Rondelle' and 'Tea-Thyme' collections.
The bottom layers of my flowers were die cut using scallops
from Spellbinders and the very bottom scallops were stamped
with matching inks using Skipping Stones Designs'
'Garden Stamp Kiss' set.  The sentiment and scroll border
is from 'Everyday Blessings'.

I hope you will pop over to the Skipping Stones Design Blog
and take a look at all the beautiful inspiration from the designers there.

Thanks so much for stopping by . . . I'll see you again soon !

What a gorgeous card, Julie! Those colors just hint at fall - kinda like the weather we've been having here in Michigan this week! :) Those flowers are beautiful!

Perfect fall card with gorgeous flowers. Love the addition of the bling. It's an extension of summer with temps in the 70's & 80's during the day and 50's at night. Just beautiful here.
