Well, I am back from my vacation (yes, I did finally get packed) and life is good. My MIL arrived today and I'm getting ready for Troy's birthday party on Saturday. (Baked the McQueen cake tonight.)

I am attending a farewell tomorrow for a wonderful new friend. Her husband was supposed to retire, but the Air Force decided they needed him still so now they are off to new adventures. Here is the card I have made for her. She is a crafter so I really hope she enjoys this card!

This utilizes ISC' card sketch#6 and the colors for tomorrow's farewell (black, white and yellow for a queen bee.) Well, I don't have any ISC bees so these flowers will have to do for this card. (Hey Betsy, can you help me out with my lack of bee stamps? ;D )

I did CASE this from Lisa on ISC's blog, just scroll down a bit and you'll see her awesome card. Thank you Lisa for the inspiration!

The white layers are all shimmery white, which helps to add some pizazz. I did add a bit of dimension by using one pop dot under the bottom flower and two (one on top of the other) under the second to give a little more dimension. I may add some stickles but I'm not sure where. We'll see what it looks like in the morning. ;)

Stamps: Friendship & Nature Silhouettes I (ISC); Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper: Shimmery White & Basic Black (SU); Accessories: Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, paper snips (SU).
