Color Hues featuring Country Florals

Hi there! 

I just love turning the calendar to a new page and starting a brand new month, don't you? Happy day, it's March 1 and that means a spankin' new challenge at Color Hues

The colors I chose for our group were two of my favorites, yellow and blue. I created this card using Pinkfresh Studio's Floral Notes stamp set, keeping with a provincial country look for the florals

I heat embossed the blooms in white and colored them in using my Zig markers. For the background panel I stamped the Windowpane Plaid Background Stamp in blue. I added the die cut sentiment using the Birthday Blooms stamps and dies, also from The Greetery. I love the boldness and larger size of these sentiments. For more real estate, I made this card a into a 5 X 7.  Finding just the shade of blue in my sequins stash, made me happy! I must (blushingly) say that I love how this turned out. 

I'm just remembering that after our 20 years of frequent cross country and overseas moves as my dear one served the military, I dreamed of having a home that I could decorate and make our very own. We eventually had a new home built.

It featured yellow and blue and a french provincial style - and lots of flowery patterns and accents! Although now my style is simpler and more modern - I still love this look. 

That's what I love about this craft. It's only paper! I hope you can't wait to join us at the challenge with YOUR style!
