Flower Power


Good morning everyone!!! It's a beautiful Saturday morning and I'm going outside to play in the dirt!! I could stay in the house and sweep floors, wash clothes, and dust but I think I'll pass and hope my fairy Godmother will clean while I'm outside....well, a girl can dream can't she??? I had some time last night to do a little fun stamping....this last week was full of hops and other DT obligations so it was really fun to play *just cause*!!!!
I made this card for the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger - Flower Power. My colors don't match perfectly but I think you can see the resemblance to the trigger pillow. I used the flower stamp from Stampin Up's Fifth Ave Floral and the leaves are from Studio 490's Ticket to Art set. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday basics set and the papers included Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Really Rust, amd Perfect Plum.
Thanks for visiting today and I hope you get to do something fun this weekend!!!!!

What a gorgeous card! You matched the colors and the flowers so well, amazing. So glad you got to stamp for fun and going to play outside. When your Fairy Godmother is done at your house, can you send her my way, just head north. :)

This is beautiful, Joan! And i really like how it's helping me see "5th Ave. Floral" in a whole new light, I've never used this set in a bold way like this. It looks great! Also, many congrats on your card in the current Paper Crafts, what a pretty project! :)
