Flowers For You


I'm playing along with ColourQ where the colour palette is this mouthwatering selection:

I have (very) loosely based the design on the sketch for STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #3.  What do you think?  A step too far???

And as it's a one layer card, I'm adding it to the runaway success that is One Layer Simplicity Challenge.  It seems everyone's loving it being in one place, and monthly.

All stamps by STAMPlorations:  Vignette Eclectic Florals, Patchwork Frenzy Graphic Squares (sentiment), Vignette Retro Mod Shapes (small leaf)
Inks: Memento Rhubarb Stalk, London Fog, Distress Inks Scattered Straw, Ripe Persimmon

  4. You always know the perfect image to use for these color challenges, Shirley! This is perfection!!

    I'm spending the day catching up on my visiting and I should have saved your blog for last. I've missed so many of your amazing creations that my eyes are now popped out of my head and no good to me without a nap to calm down!! You are ever the inspiration!!

    I hope you are enjoying the weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Not even close to stepping off the edge regarding the sketch! Heck, flip the sketch upside down and you have a bouquet of flowers....pretty dazzling orange flowers that is! Another cool image with great use of the challenge colors (which scared me off the moment I saw them!)
