Blogger's challenge


Today our challenge was to use Bayou Blue, Real Red and River Rock together. What a great color combo! I really liked it! This is a simple card. I used the Bblue as the card base and added a River rock card to that. I stamped the flower from in Bayou blue and sponged the centers lightly with Real red. I added a bit of white gel pen to the....what are those things called? Flower fingers? Anyway, I added a strip of real red along the bottom and stamped Embrace Life in Bayou blue. I added a tiny strip of Bayou blue on top of that to pull it all together.
It is great to be home. After flying all night, I got home around 10:30 yesterday morning. Most of my kids were home from school...? But they were nice enough to let me sleep til 2pm. Then we started the clean up. Let me tell ya.....six kids can really make a gross mess. Maybe I should just say 7 kids and count dear hubby in there. My oldest daughter was an absolute angel and kept the kitchen clean. That made SUCH a difference!
I had a scrappin night last night so I'm back in the stampin saddle already. Two more workshops this weekend and then...maybe I'll catch my breath. The spa was great and I am still feeling relaxed from my days there. I hope it lasts for a while!

Have a happy day!

That's an awesome card. I love how you didn't color the flowers in completely like I am always tempted to do, this is such a great idea - such a soft look! Great layout too!
