The weather here the last few days has been picture-perfect for summer and I really wanted to leave all my responsibilities behind and just crash on a beach or on my patio to soak up the sun. But alas reality reared its ugly head and I found myself at work last week and doing some housework this weekend. But never fear I did manage to spend some quality time with my chaise lounge this weekend and even got a little crafty.
I made this card using the very-bright colors at Color Throwdown. Such an eclectic combination and not one that I was sure I could combine successfully but I trudged on. Once I broke it down to green (leaves), yellow (flowers) and purple (the wild card here with a button) I was ok. The background circle is a stencil that I did with some embossing paste. The layout is from Cardabilities.
The sentiment may seem a bit odd with these floral images, but this card is destined for someone special who will appreciate it. I made it using my vintage Dymo labler (don't know how I lived without that thing for so long)! Booyah!
Thanks for stopping by!
