Thinking of You - Summer Field of Flowers

"No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens."
                                                                  --------Abraham Lincoln

Hi, Friends......

I am back with a card I made that was inspired by three different challenges:

1.  MFP Speedy TV - Inspirational Challenge #68 Doors with this as one of their wonderful inspiration photos.  I love that vine of flowers around that brightly painted door!!!




2.  The Color Me Scrappy Challenge with this amazingly gorgeous color palette and a twist of using floral patterned paper.  Love this color combo and the photo of the field of poppies!!!





3.  The TechnoScrapper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge with this inspired sketch.  Love the row of 3 flowers!!

Put them all together and what's that look like?



Supplies I used include:  DCWV cardstock from The Sweet Blossom stack, Coredinations cardstock, Prima flowers, May Arts Ribbon (vine), Serendipity Thinking of You small sentiment stamp which was part of a prize (THANKS, Serendipity!!), Want2Scrap self-adhesive pearls, and thrift store ribbon (cream).

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.  Your comments make my day!!!

Thanks for your encouraging comment!! I really like to challenge myself by taking a theme challenge, a color challenge, and a sketch challenge and try to intentionally merge them. Sometimes it works better than at other times!!! Ha. Thanks so much for dropping by!!!
