May You Have....


Today's Color Challenge at SCS really challenged me. It's so interesting how some colors are easy for people to put together and some aren't! That's why it's a challenge, huh? ;)

I used the Stamp of the Month for September from CTMH, and cased a layout from the CTMH catalog for today's card. It didn't turn out quite like I had hoped, and I had to "fix" some things, but it's done!

The organdy ribbon is rainbow colored, and I chose a piece that had complimentary colors in it. The tangerine flowers are cut out and held like a little nosegay by the twill.

Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate every one of my readers!

Tomorrow I will have some fun fall recipes and a craft for kids!
Have a great day!
P.S. KELLEY: "May you have.......a wonderful birthday today!!!"

Wow! Such a meaningful card. I love how you highlighted the word 'sorrow'. Very creative. I love the popped up flowers, and the tag too. The tag, along with the highlighted word 'sorrow' are very thought-provoking.

What a pretty card! I like the sentiment and the rainbow ribbon is a perfect touch. I also like the way you made the flowers dimensional- very nice!

What a unique idea to cut out the flowers and tie them on the front of the card. Beautiful!
