Flowers

 





Color Throwdown- use plum, light pink, sage green, celery green-CTD681

Simon Says- anything Goes

Another fun card I made using my color bursts, water, a stamp and lots of fun. These color bursts are in a small plastic bottle which you just sprinkle a little bit down, add water and watch the colour explode. It's so much fun to see how the colours work. Once the pink and plum dried, I stamped the flower image and fussy cut it out. I adhered the green backing(OK not quite sage and celery but they are kind of around...use your imagination) to some pink cardstock and added the flower using pop up dots  I coloured the leaves in sage and celery (honestly I did), added the border stickers, that I coloured in a pale pink, and the pink Crystals for the centre of the flowers. 

I wish all of you a great last day of February. Please let's send our special thoughts to the people, and their pets, of Ukraine. This is, unfortunately, not the first time they have had to deal with Russia (They lost close to 7 million people in 1932/33, due to starvation and murder, at the hands of Stalin during his Russian rule. Ukraine has always been their own country in my eyes.

  1. Hi, Birgit!

    The color combination you selected for this floral card is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Mrs. Shady and I chose a piece of abstract art for our home that includes these shades. The giver of this lovely card can feel proud and the receiver thankful.

    Yessum, there goes the short month of February, and now you folks up north can begin the long March toward spring. Thank you for expressing yourself about the dire situation in Ukraine, dear friend. I will keep the people and their animals in my thoughts.

    Have a wonderful week, dear BB!
