Thought for the day -

Hi...well my long weekend is just about over. It was a good one though. I spent most of today playing with my new toys. I have finally purchased a cuttlebug and LOVE it!! I've been drooling over the great cards I've seen with the nestibilities and the embossings and can now finally join in the fun, lol. I also purchased some new pollycraft stamps and love them. I be showcasing those in the next few days, lol.

My card today is for 2 challenges- Magnolia vs Stampavie, and the challenge was a color challenge. The 2nd challenge was the sketch challenge from Friday Sketchers. I love the choice of colors and actually was able to incorporate them all.

This was a great sketch-definitely one I will use again. I used my farmer tilda and colored her using my copics. My dp is from cloud9designs- I love all their new papers! The floral dp is called floral sunrise and the polka dot is sunrise smoothie- yummy! I got to play with my build a brad from stampin up. These are great! Love them.

My flowers were made using my cricut. And I also used my new cuttlebug to emboss my olive green paper. So easy! I don't know what took me so long to get one of these. I couldn't pass it up as it was on sale at Michaels for 50% off. Bonus!

I incorporated all 4 colors inside my card with a few more little flowers.
That is it for today. Now I must get to reading- I have my bookclub next week and still haven't started this months selection!
Take care,

I like the way that you brought this unusual combination of colors together. The card is adorable. Very creative.
