365 Cards: Floral Fest

Hey there! I participated in todays challenge at 365 Cards which is Floral Fest. That means you must have 8 flowers on your card. Woah buddy, thats a lot of flowers! In light of my activities for today (Revlon Run/Walk for Breast Cancer) I thought I would make my card all Pink. By the time this posts I should just be starting my run... lets pray my allergies don't flare up and my legs don't give out!
You can see I got in all eight flowers on there, which is quite a surprise. (there are two sewn together, so technically I have 16!) I made this 5 1/4 square. I added some Hibiscus Burst Buttons, Raspberry Fizz ribbon and the only sentiment I thought was suited for today.

I have not personally been affected by breast cancer, but I have many people around me that are fighting the fight or have watched loved ones fight.... My heart goes out to them. I am praying for you; a full recovery for some, praying for peace and understanding for others.

Thanks for visiting me today. Love to you and yours~

Love the way you used the blooms! I could use a bunch of these praying for you cards! It seems with the state of the economy and 1 out of 3 friends loosing their jobs and sicklies and such, I should have a huge stack of these. Great sentiment! Thank you!

Have a great rest of your weekend!

fabulous card, I was wondering if you made the flowers? I really like the way you lined the flowers up, while 8 is a lot of flowers for one card and normally would overwhelm a card, the way you put them on your card it is not overwhelming. Just stunning...hope all went well with your run.
