That is the sentiment that I used on the card that I made for 365 cards today.
Here is the recipe for today's challenge.

5x5 Card
4 different patterned papers
3 blossoms
1 stamped (ink or digital) image
5 rhinestones
The sentiment is up to you

It has been rainy and damp and I thought cool, but everyone else was enjoying the temps. It is suppose to be another dreary day tomorrow also. But we are one day closer to the weekend. I appreciate you taking time to check in on me.

All four of the papers were from a K&Company little designer Mat Pat. It was called Berry Sweet. The vase and flower stems are from a clear stamp that was not in its original wrapping, so I have no ideal who it is by. I took a close up of the blossoms to prove that there are actually 4 different papers used. There is the layer on top of the base card, the strip across the middle, then 2 different patterns make up the flowers. I cut the little flowers with my Cricut, using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge. To get the flowers that small, I used the sign feature and made the sign measuring at 1 in. So then the little flowers were just the right size. I used one of both papers to make the flower, then added rhinestones by Best Occasions to the center of the 3 flowers and two more positioned to look like new buds on the stems.
