A Triple Challenge!

Hello! Can you believe it's July 1st already? Where is the summer going?!? Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends! :)

Today's SCS Color Challenge is a great one, with some of my favorite colors: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, and Certainly Celery. I decided to combine it with this week's MFT Sketch Challenge. As I reached for paper, I picked up some BasicGrey Perhaps because it has a gorgeous pomegranate color. That makes this card another entry for the Our Creative Corner challenge to use BG paper! Three-in-one! Whew!

The card size is 5" square. The inner celery panel is 4.25" square and is embossed with my Cuttlebug and Textile Texture folder. The images are from My Favorite Things. I stamped the flowers after masking off the word "Chamomile" from the bottom, because I thought it would compete with the sentiment. The sentiment is from Essential Sentiments. I paper pieced the pot with the BG paper, and I colored the flowers with Copics. Prima flowers and a rhinestone brad finish the card.

Tonight is Megan's first dive meet of the season -- cross your fingers for her! It's going to be a beautiful night, so we're looking forward to hanging out by the pool and enjoying the evening! I'll be back tomorrow with the ATS Wednesday Challenge -- it's a color challenge. I hope you'll play with us! Have a great day -- thanks for stopping by! :)
