.... it's August already - this year is simply flying by - and it's time for our new challenge at CR84FN. For the next week and a half you'll be playing with my very favourite colours - BLUE, GRAPE and GREEN.
I love shades of blue, green and purple and I think these photos (courtesy of Embrace Life Photography) are fabulous - just love the flower arrangements. And its the flowers that gave me the inspiration for this birthday card, and that fact that the recipient loves gardens!!
Stamps: Hero Arts - Layered Flowers; Stampin' Up! - Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess set); Waltzingmouse - Fancy Flourishes: Dots & Scallops
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: SU Designer Papers - Pacific Point, Perfect Plum, Wild Wasabi; Card from stash
I really like these big flowers with clear lines, it makes it so easy to cut out the layers. I stamped the various flowers onto SU designer paper, using alternate sides and then cut out the layers. I stamped the lovely flourishes in the background and then attached the flowers. I finished off with this pretty birthday sentiment - love the font!

This week's challenge over at Do You Stack Up? - DYSU83 is to use polka dots! What fun, the Stampin' Up! paper has polka dots on one side and text on the other, and as I showed both I'm submitting it to their challenge. Just love this graphic - the shoe is fabulous, although there is no way I could walk on those heels :)
We are on holiday for a couple of weeks - doing the coast road from San Diego to San Francisco - a great adventure for us. So it means that I won't be able to comment as much as normal, but I will try to pop in and check out your cards - after all these are my favourite colours!! Bye for now.
