FS120 Lord have Mercy incl. Banana Split Sunday

Hey everyone!!!

After this crazy day I really needed to do some *Stampin' Therapy*!!! Thank you all for including my friend and her family into your prayers!!!

On a happier note - I was soooo excited to see my buddy Mercy Kerin being featured as the FS120 today!!! Congrats Mercy - you rock!!!

I soooooo had to play and combined my card with the Banana Split Sunday Challenge - which is about adding some *flowers* to your card/project!!! Check out the 2RedBananas blog for all the details!!!

If you know Mercy - you know she has a fabulous gallery and I chose this sweet little card of hers!!!

Here is what I have changed - different Stamp image, I flipped the Sketch , changed the colors, used a nestie and added some flowers!!!

I used the beautiful new released Flourish in Thought Set.

I inked it in Memento Black and colored it with Copic & Prisma Markers - E00, N1, PM-6, PM-14, PM-132 and PM-197.

The Wild Wasabi DP is from the retired Hostess Level I Prints Pack. The Nestie is Label Two and I used the PTI Satin Ribbon - New Leaf. The flowers are from the MM - Chloe's Closet Collection plus Prisma Collection. I added some small White Buttons and my favorite Silver Pearls in the center.

The sentiment is from the SU Great Friend Set. I also inked it in Memento Black.

Hope you have time to play along??? ~TFL~
