Flower Fest Thanks

Took some time to play tonight while waiting on my boys! The oldest has been out of town all week, in Florida with his High School Band. The youngest is helping with the Shrine Football team that "camps" at our local college. Weird that neither are home!!

Anyway, I browsed some challenge blogs and found a few challenges that suited me! Here is the card I created


I combined the sketch challenge from The Paper Players:


with the color challenge from The Color Dare:


Color Dare #102

So Saffron
Concord Crush
Neutral of Choice

I try not to pass up the chance to play with Concord Crush!! My card base is Concord Crush with a dotted DSP of Concord Crush for the background. In the center is a strip of So Saffron with Concord Crush scallop accents on each side. The So Saffron was stamped with flowers in So Saffron, and the saying at the bottom in Concord Crush. The center elements is a 3" circle of Concord Crush with flowers attached. I stamped the flowers with Concord Crush, added So Saffron accents, punched with their coordinating punch, and finished with a So Saffron Glitter Brad (not currently available). The flowers were attached with dimensionals. Pretty quick and easy-I may have time for a few more yet tonight!!
