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!!

  8. Stephanie - this is a great way to use the colors - I can see that by separating the coral from the raspberry with the chocolate that they work! Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls this week. We appreciate your participation :-)
