Friday Feature with Raisin Boat

Hello!  Happy Friday!  I am so happy that the weekend is here.  Tomorrow I will be treating myself to a manicure and pedicure, well sort of, my carpool buddies gave me a gift certificate so they're treating me to a manicure and pedicure - I can't wait!  I need a bit of pampering.

Anyway, I have a card to share with you featuring my favorite color from Raisin Boat.  This is Crushed Red Pepper and it's the richest, yummiest red - I love love LOVE this color.

The stamps that are featured are from the Bloom set and Oops a Daisy (sentiment).  I recycled an old sketch of mine for the layout and I am so pleased with the results.  I {humbly} think this card turned out so stunning!  I embellished with ribbon and Liquid Pearls.  Although not what I used, what you can find in the Raisin Boat Store is a Pearl Pen.  I have a Glitter Liner which is the same brand and let me say, these are awesome!

I really hope you love this card as much as I do.  I also hope that your Friday is fabulous, fruitful and fun!
