Pick A Letter ~ FTTC169

Good Friday Morning to You all!!
I have a few things to share with you today.....

I made this card last night while my hubby was baling hay.....
seems I spend lots of time alone during this time of year....
but fun, free time for me.....
I used some of my newest paper from Dear Lizzy called "Neapolitan"....
don't you just LOVE this paper.....
I stitched around it with a zigzag stitch....I sometimes love stitching on a card....
I stamped with my "Sweet Nature" set from Flourishes.....
can you believe how much this set matches the paper...perfect!!
I colored the rose in with Pebbles Cream Chalks......
I haven't used these in a while...so this was my 3rd try..."nuff" said!
I added my favortie gingham ribbon...
and a cute sentiment from Flourishes "April Showers"
I am entering this in the Flourish challenge "to pick a letter"...
and use 3 items that start with that letter....
I choose the letter "C"....
my 3 items are Cream Chalk ~ Clearly Better Ink (from TPC Sudios) ~ Cardstock

Before I go I wanted to share a couple more of my garden photos
This is a Dwarf Mock Orange.....
I will take another pic of it today, as it is really blooming now!

This is one of my favorite Iris I have (and I have over 20 varieties)....
so unusual to see the pink color Iris.
