Plant a Little Love and Watch a Miracle Grow

Hello! Happy Sunday! My card for today combines 3 challenges (a record for me!!).. First I sat down to work on JUGS21, a color inspiration challenge hosted by Maria. Boy was it was tough!! The colors I used are Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate, Berry Sorbet and Vanilla Cream. After spending some time searching through my designer paper, I finally gave up and decided to just use cardstock and color block. The layout is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #57, which I though would work well with the colors. And last but not least, I wanted to play along in the JustRite Friday Challenge 006: Beautiful Botanics.

I layered my blocks of color, ran the entire panel through my Cuttlebug using the Birds & Swirls embossing folder, the I added some stitching. For my main image, I used one of the flowers from Plant a Little Love Borders & Centers. I colored it with my Copic markers and popped it on top of the center, which reads "Plant a Little Love and Watch a Miracle Grow". I colored a couple of tiny pearls with my R30 Copic marker and added it to the border as well.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
