miss you!!

Good Wednesday morn"!! Starting the day with the Color Throwdown challenge and the hostess this week is Broni and she's picked a gorgeous color combo this week!! If I was twenty years younger, I'd be searching the internet for that gorgeous top, just sayin'!!

Here are the colors...


Here's my card...


Stamped the background with Waltzingmouse Stamps (WMS) Offbeat Backgrounds... not intending to have the colors crisp, a little faded. Used WMS Vintage Labels 25.... again a little faded, cut out with a Labels 25 nestabilitie, sentiment from WMS Compact Sentiments, stamped the flowers a couple of times-colored with copics and layered one on top with foam dots for some dimension. The nestie panel was layered on top of a stitched circle using foam dots. About that poppy parade/gray panel... was trying to emboss/deboss on the same panel and a Quikkutz dots/lines EF was a good idea but, didn't work out quite like I envisioned... it happens, right!?!? I used Jen's Deconstructed sketch as the springboard but... changed it up a titch!!













Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

Beautiful card Vickie! You're stamped background is wonderful! What a fabulous touch to had the subtle embossing on the poppy parade panel, even if it wasn't supposed to be like that. LOL
