Anything Goes for THE FLOWER CHALLENGE.....

Hello again, everyone: I've been off for a while, dealing with a difficult family situation, things are just ok, this is a day by day thing, hard to deal with emotionally but we're doing our best.
I had a hard time concentrating, I sat at my desk many times trying to create something, anything but couldn't so I just got up and left, sometimes just going for a swim to get my mind out of the gutter.
But I missed coloring and making my cards so I'm here now sharing this one for THE FLOWER CHALLENGE "Anything Goes" September Challenge, I hope it gets you inspired to come and join my teammates and me in our gallery.

This time we have two fabulous gifts to give away given by our generous sponsor for this month, MY FAVORITE THINGS, we can't wait to see what you come up with.

My card was created using the PAINTED PETALS stamp set. I heat embossed the flowers with white embossing powder and stamped the leaves with SU "Lost Lagune" ink.  The birthday greeting is cut with a die from Die Cuts and More.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called POTTED PRIMROSES.

I hope you get inspired to come and play along at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE
remember to make FLOWERS the main focus on your card, you can play along with 6 challenges, including ours, please show our banner on your post and also, take a look at my teammates' awesome blogs, for more inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments always make my day.

I knew you'd be along with something fabulous for your DT posts, but I'll admit... I miss you! There are quite a few of my blogging friends going through some difficult times right now. I don't know why all at once, but I'm sad for all of you. You did make a very sweet and pretty card, Maria. I know it's hard to stamp and blog when your mind and heart are elsewhere. Hugs.

Hello my lovely friend! Been thinking of you and praying for you! Miss our connection here but don't feel you need to create when it's just not in your head to do so. You pulled off a beautiful card with MFT Stamps, I had to look this up on your link, was not aware of this beauty!
