Sentimental Sundays....Flowers and a Fundraiser

Hi everyone-

Before I get to today's card, I'd like to mention a special fundraiser that I am helping out with. Kim Sherrod is holding a fundraiser for her dear friend whose son was admitted to the hospital for heart problems. Kim is trying to raise money for her friend to be able to see her son, but it's not going well. Her friend is struggling financially and can't afford to make the trip.

She approached me about designing some stamps for her and I was glad to do so. You can purchase the stamps in digi format or possibly as clear stamps, too by visiting THIS PAGE. If you can, please stop over and help her raise some money for a very worthy cause. This card, surprisingly, is also for the Sentimental Sundays Challenge for this week which is:


And the inside:
Supplies used:
Cardstock: SU (Tempting Turquoise, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Bashful Blue)
Spellbinders: S5-050, LF-126, S4-128, S4-126, S4-318
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug Polka Dots
Button: Webster's Pages Vintage Sparklers (Roses and Pearls)
Ribbon: Pom Pom (Unknown)

Isn't that image just precious?!!?!!  Ann did a fantastic job and I had to use it.
The sentiment is actually inside the heart and it's from the second set: Fancy Floral that she designed as well. 

There is no coloring of any sort on this card!!! I'm pretty impressed because it is the first for me and I really like how it all came together.  Of course I had some help, I used ColourQ and For Your Inspiration challenges as my guide for this creation.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, really hope that you get a chance to join this weeks challenge and/or help out with the fundraiser.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
