Take time to smell the flowers !

Hi there and a happy Friday to you !  I hope you have had a good week, I can't complain life is good here.  Do you all have any plans for the weekend...I will be watching my youngest DGD play basketball Sat. morning, hanging out with my son and his family all day and then we are all going to dinner that evening for Valentine's day. 
Well on to the reason you are here my card....yep we are still using up the inventory on hand.  This week we are bringing on the layers, my card has 7 not including the card base. I have followed the sketch at Midnight Madness  MMSC#90.  Over at the CMC Copic Challenge group, our challenge was to color something with flowers and use different techniques and or color schemes.  I have used the feathering technique for the flowers and have added stickles to the center.  My DP's were a gift from my Sis they are DCWV "Once upon a Time" mat stack.  The solids are DCWV also.
If you have a minute please stop by my team mates Christina, Danielle, Rene, Sandy and our newest member Jean, I am sure they have some beautiful creations to show.

Additional challenges:
Craft us Crazy - Anything goes
Squigglefly - Circles...the center of the flowers :)

That's it for me today...have a great weekend !

Hey Miss Charlene - what are these cute little critters? The are adorable and I am very sure that they are sleeping in your plant not eating it!! Oops - their eyes are wide open - could they be looking at each other? Love your layout and your coloring is wonderful - you got some neat layers going on here - I really like the corners. Your design work really fits the image used. Cute as punch!!

Charlene, I love your version of the Squigglefly Shy Bears. This card is just too cute and I'd love to see you enter it in this week's Squigglefly challenge. Circles is the theme and I think the flower centers are definitely circly enough! Delightful card!
