Especially for You, Petunia

Happy Friday, my friends! =) Here is my card for this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge over at the Stamping Bella Blog!

The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee's C'est La Vie 6x6 paper pad and the sentiment comes with the image.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members and participants created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over at the Stamping Bella Blog! =)
