Wild Pomegranate Flowers


Good morning! It's a rainy, cool day here -- good for staying inside and stamping! :) Actually, I was up and out early this morning -- I had to take my two oldest kids to an orthodontist appointment before school. I was able to check out today's Color Challenge when I got home. My youngest did not go to school today, since she has a nasty cough and cold, so I was able to get a card made while she napped.

The colors today are Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, and So Saffron. This card came together pretty easily with the help of my Cutie Pie paper! Just yesterday I had decided to use some of my neglected stamp sets, and Simply Said was perfect for this design. I added some Flower Fusion flowers and some brads to the stamped image, and I embellished with stitched grosgrain. For the sentiment, I took the stamp and inked up just the the word "friend" with a Basic Black marker.

That's it -- a simple and fun design! Sometimes that designer paper does a lot of the work for me! :) I hope you're having a good day -- thanks so much for stopping by!
