Roses on Paper Challenge - Flowers and a Challenge!

I never remember a time in my life where I haven't read. Sometimes it was any romance novel I could get my hands on, other times it's been anything Stephen King. My last passion with reading has been Harry Potter. I love anything that can totally take me away from where I happen to be and to get lost in the written word is a slice of heaven to me! So when I saw Never Ever from The Greeting Farm over at Summer's Roses on Paper, I had to have it!

Over at our Roses on Paper Challenge Blog, we were challenged by the ever so talented Rosette to follow a Challenge and to include flowers. Make sure you stop by their blogs to see what gorgeous creations they've come up with. You can find their links on my right sidebar. I used Wendy from The Greeting Farms Never Ever set and followed the I heart to Stamp sketch and just had to pull out my Prima Flowers. I stamped her on watercolor paper with Staz-On ink and colored her with my distressed inks. I love using them and thought the BasicGrey Wisteria paper was perfect for her. I love the soft look of that paper. Of course, there's some stickles thrown in there, but I really love the Glossy Accents on her glasses!

I hope you enjoy her and give some thought into picking up a good book. In the world of technology, I fear reading from paper is becoming a lost pleasure. I want to spend more time reading this summer. After all, the new Harry Potter movie comes out in July. That gives me enough time to revisit an old, dear friend for the 2, well I won't tell you how many times!

Card Ingredients:

Never Ever from The Greeting Farm, Distressed Inks, Wisteria paper and brads from BasicGrey, Prima flowers, Stickles, SU word punch, Glossy Accents

I love reading too!! AND, the Harry Potter series is one of the best. I am not a vampire fan, however, the Twilight Saga is amazing too. Makes me like vampires. ;) You should try it if you have not already. Love the card and I really think this little stamp is so cute. :)
