Color Throwdown #352 -- Just a Note!!

Happy Hump Day!!

S0- are you a crunchy grass person or sogging wet? Yes, I know that was out of left field but.... we have not had rain for so long when you walk on the grass it crunches. AND- we have a small farm in IN that the south side has a pond in the middle of a terraced field that has never held a rain drop!! We are on voluntary water restrictions here in NC... watering a lawn wouldn't help at this point... only cost an arm and a leg without green grass!!

On to the fun for the day....

Tammy picked the colors this week... fun!! Lovin' that little bucket!!

 I played with some new Verve stamps and dies... always fun to play with new things!! My mint green is more on the bluish was the ink closest to the color that I owned... does that mean I need to go ink shopping :) 

My card uses Floral Notes and the matching die along with the Flourishes die set. Here's the LINK to all the new goodies. I CASEd the background stitched circle from Julee's card HERE. Loved it for this sketch.

This is so gorgeous! Love the way you accented the top of the tag and aqua flowers make me so happy!

Kim Heggins said...

So your pretty flowers and that circle, so beautiful.

Monika/Buzsy said...

So pretty Vickie. Love the sweet little flower hanging off the layered tag. Great elements and nice take on the sketch.

Tammy Hershberger said...

ANY reason to go shopping, Vickie! Go, shop! Spend! :) LOVE your sweet card! Very pretty!

Marisa said...

This is fabulous, Vickie!!! Way to flash the new Verve adn you rocked teh color combo. Adore the leaves at the top of the tag and open circle!

Crunchy grass it is herre as we are on level three water restrictions here in BC. NO watering the lawn or washing the car allowed and you have to hand water any garden plants that need watering. Basically no rain for three months here which is unheard of on the West Coast! Been HOT too - 90s for stretches of 4 days or so (not fun when you don't have AC) and a lot of humidity too. Desperately need rain here!

Cute, cute, cute! Love the layered tags with the circle! I'm so bummed I never have time to do the Friday Verve challenges anymore. This stinkin' job interferes with fun time!

Valentyna Komisarenko said...

Such a pretty card! Love paper layering here and beautiful flowers!

Broni said...

What a great card, Vickie! I adore those little flowers! We had rain Thursday too. Just enough to "un-crunch" the grass! LOL!!
