I Love Flowers


Hey, I'm back for this weekend's challenge from Our Creative Corner. I apologize for not posting this week - things have been a little crazy! I'll hope for more stamping time next week.

For today's challenge our lovely hostess Silke has challenged us to a color combo: green, pink, brown, yellow plus neutrals. I immediately thought of this image from Messages for Mom, since I could stamp it in chocolate chip and color it with markers. I picked pretty in pink, barely banana, and old olive. Then I cut and embossed with Nestabilities and added piercing in the oval's scallops. The background is barely banana cardstock embossed with the Elegant Bouquet folder. Then I used the Little Leaves die and the boho blossoms and 1/4" circle punch to make more flowers. Yep, I do love flowers! A strip of chocolate chip satin ribbon (something else I love) and a sentiment from Well Scripted and that was it.

Be sure you check out the rest of the team's creations and come and play along! We always love to see your work. Have a great weekend!

Lori, I love that your emphasis is on the yellow portion of today's challenge!! It has a rich 'creaminess' to it that I just love!
