It's been a LONG time!!!

This is the second post for today, so you'll have to scroll down to see the other card I made!
So I was just dinkin' around, dropping by some of my favorite blogs and I thought I would see what Kristina was up to.....and lo and behold, I could not even believe my eyes when here web page came up! Another color challenge!!!!

Kristina's color inspiration challenges were the main reason of why I started this silly blog! I would look at them week after week, and even make some cards for some of them, and then one day, I just decided that I would start a blog and start playing along. I have really been sad that she hasn't been doing them lately, but I of all people can understand. Life is really busy. For all of us in a million different ways.

So, wow! These colors have really stumped me. I have a stamp set that I just ordered, that I think would be PERFECT for these colors, but since I don't have it yet, I'll just have to make do.

Well, this is what I came up with! I love all the flowers, but it was a lot of cutting!!! I did have a lot of fun putting all the flowers on though....usually when I have a lot of things to layer and put together, I practice first and then go back and adhere them, trying my best to get them in the same place....this time I just put dimensionals on the back and stuck them on, so what you see was my first attempt at placement!

Thanks for stopping by!
