Rustic Flowers







It's time for the weekly color challenge over at Kristina Werner's blog. I really like to play along because it gets me into creating. Summertime for me can be kind of lazy so I push myself on this challenge. When I saw the bedspread picture I thought it was kind of busy so my card started out that way. I made a background with stamps from the Rustic Flower set, but then after I got it done I thought it was a bit much. So I went for a large sentiment to kind of tone it down. This one comes from the For Every Occasion set which I find myself reaching for a lot. It was a stamp of the month and I'm hoping it makes a catalog soon! My sistah found some felt flowers and shared with me so I used those and added a paper flower as well. I hope you like it!

You are Close to My Heart,

Yvonne

p.s. Stacy was right on the quote. "Easy peasy, lemon squeezy" is from the movie "The Greatest Game Ever Played". She's going to have to wait until after the next workshop to get the card though :0)
