Flower Moments card

Hello and happy Thursday!

Can you believe we're already more than halfway through May??  I really can't believe how much time has passed!

Sorry for my infrequency in posting.  Things have been a little busy here, and I haven't gotten to stamp as much as I've been wanting.  But I do have a card for you today!  I thought I had just about died and gone to fashion heaven (LOL) when I saw Arielle's colourQ challenge this week:

Gorgeous bag, right??  It's SO me!

Anyway, enough gushing!  I used Mojo Monday's sketch this week to create my card:

I did leave out the vertical lines from the sketch.  (I was considering using Linen Thread to create this - do you think it needs it?)  Whew!  I am certainly going to miss Bermuda Bay!  Remember that this color, along with Summer Sun, will be retiring next month!  Make sure you get this from your demo before it's too late. ;)  The green color, Kiwi Kiss, is already retired.  For some reason I'm partial to greens, and I really, really love this color combo.  Just makes me think of fresh spring flowers!

The sentiment is from the Elements of Style stamp set, stamped on a Kiwi Kiss Top Note die-cut.  Don't forget that you receive a free pack of Designer Brads with the purchase of the Elements of Style stamp set during May!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. OH my golly! What a wonderful color set!! I am going to use this on a page for sure!!! You did an excellent job with this one, Mellisa!!

    As for the lines...maybe...but I think without. It would have taken away the understating. I think I like it without.

    Maybe in other colors, but no, I like it this way. Perfect!

  2. This is amazing! I love it so much! Great job with the Mojo sketch too! Thanks for joining us at the Colour Q this week!

  3. I seriously would gobble that bag right up too!!! I love those colors and your card is spectacular!

  4. Your card is BEAUTIFUL!!!! LOVE how you used the colors and that bow is just too perfect for words!

  5. Great job with the sketch. The colors are fantastic together!

  6. This card is fabulous! You really nailed this color combo. I especially love that textured background.

  7. You crack me up.....dying and going to fashion heaven! Yes, every time Arielle posts a challenge, I can't imagine how she continues to find such cool trendy stuff! And your take on the challenge is awesome---I love these flowers in these colors! Great job!

  8. I think it's perfect just the way it is! I love these colors used with that floral set!
