The color challenge this week at Create With Connie and Mary had me stumped at first.  I started making a card last night but realized after a while that it was absolute rubbish, so I put it aside in favor of sleeping on it.  I went back to my stamp room this afternoon after I discovered a Sketchbook Saturday sketch from a couple of weeks ago, which just screamed at me to use a flower die and would be perfect with these colors.



On the card base I used the Perfect Details texturz plate, something I have not used in ages.  The flowers are cut with the Flower Daisies #2 Sizzix die and the buttons are from a retired set called Fresh Favorites I.  I really like those buttons because they have a lovely matte finish.  Kind of a nice departure from all the shiny buttons SU! has now.  The So Saffron DSP is from my never-ending stash of Sweet Pea.

I had intended to stamp a sentiment on this card but forgot to do it before I embossed the base, so now I think it's too late.  I don't want to add another layer so I guess it stays the way it is!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the look of these flowers on the yellow and gray background...they really do POP. The matte finish buttons are the perfect contrast to the bright flowers too...how I wish we still had those! So glad you joined us at CCMC!

This card is so vibrant, and CAS, it jumped out at me. So much so, that I had to use your inspiration to create a card of my own. I have posted on my blog, and mentioned your fab creation. Kind thanks. Lynn x

Sometimes it helps to walk away for a little. Your card is beautiful. Love how you set one flower off to the side of the other two. Nice to see you at Create with Connie & Mary!
