Cheery Flower

Hi there everyone. Happy Saturday! It's been tricky doing/posting cards this week because my little girl is on half term. I always feel guilty card making when she is around, it's not fair on her. She is playing in the garden with Lulu at the moment so I thought I would quickly post while I can!

I love playing along with Kristina Werner's Color Inspirations #42. This week's one was a real challenge. I just couldn't get the colours to look good, so in the end I opted for the easy way out by using a lot of white and the other colours as accents. I don't have the SU! colours so I used Bazzill Basics that were close to them. As usual I'm one of the last on the list of entries. I work better to deadlines!! That's my excuse anyway!

The card was actually really easy to construct, once I'd got my head around it! I embossed some white cardstock with my Cuttlebug embossing folder. I then cut out the flower/leaves with my Sizzix cutter, added a few strips of colour at the top and bottom of the white and then stamped my sentiment. I wanted to make a card that I could keep for any occasion so went for my 'Hugs & Kisses' stamp, that way it will work for a 'get well', 'thanks', 'thinking of you' kind of card. As you can see I still have wonky pictures, but hey ho you get the drift!

Dies: Sizzix 'Paper Sculpting, Daisy', Cuttlebug 'Bloom Dots'
Stamps: Hero Arts, 'Hugs & Kisses'
Paper: Basic Grey (yes again! I LOVE these papers, can you tell?!) & Bazzill Classic

I'm off to post now, back soon!
