This was supposed to be a color challenge card, but it was seen that these colors were posted on the CC247 challenge. Before I knew that I created the card. My sunflowers are stamped in soft suede with a bit of black. I tore the edges and sponged with both colors, giving it a burnt or vintage look. I used a piece of dp and a decorative brad from SU.

I was purely experimenting today when stamping my hollyhocks image from Mark's Finest Papers. I used blushing bride to watercolor them, some dp with similar colors, and also did a bit of dry embossing. I used ribbon and made a sentiment using similar colors as well. I'm happy with the way it turned out.
This card was made for this week's color challenge. The colors were so saffron, certainly celery, and blushing bride. I watercolored the pansies in these colors and added some designer paper with similar colors. I used ribbon and the desert option of a floral button. Thanks for looking and enjoy all of the blooming that's going on. :>)

Today's color challenge is number 321 with the colors of crumb cake, cherry cobbler, and black. I was asked to be a guest of the CC hostess for the month of May. I was and still am excited about it, as it is really one of my most favorite challenges.
I used a beautiful floral image from Flourishes; it is the Orchid set. I water colored it. I used some great dps from Basic Grey, and a bow out of seam binding ribbon. Very fun, and a nice color combination I think. Have a great day!! :>)

I started cleaning up my desk a bit today and found this image from Flourishes already colored. These are magnolias that I colored with copics. The designer papers are from Basic Grey. The solid colors are pretty in pink, pink pirouette, and early expresso all from SU. The lace is from Mark's Finest Papers. The corner punch was done with a SU punch, and the gem was from Hobby Lobby. It was nice to use some of the things that have been sitting on my desk.
I hope all of the mom's out there have a nice day. I only have my Shih tzus, which is mostly a joy. Being a mother is a full time job that never ends. God bless you all. :>)
