Never too Late to Use Color!

Hello there! This past week's Color Challenge on SCS was a great spring palette...but it took me until Sunday to actually make a card. Truthfully, when I looked at the colors...marina mist, certainly celery, and baja breeze, I thought about some retired dsp. I don't recall the name, but it coordinates with the retired set Embrace Life. I actually cut out a piece with my top note die on Tuesday, but did nothing else for days! LOL!

After lots of thought, I did something new: I cut the top note into quarters, then pieced them on the left of both the outside and the inside of the card, so that both patterns show. I stamped the large flower and leaves from Embrace Life in a random pattern, then cut one out as a focal point. A round fire brad and dimensionals pop it up. Teeny Tiny Wishes show up with the punch duo word window and modern label.

The inside sentiment is from Thoughts and Prayers. The seam binding on the front is technically pear pizazz (fabulous blog candy I won from Anne Marie!!), but it looks like celery here. And take's tied in a BOW! Not a knot, not a flat actual BOW! Took me forever (along with some strategically placed glue dots.)

I am so glad I have a picture to prove this may never happen again! Then again, maybe it's 'cuz I got it from Stampin' Anne...she makes great bows! LOL!!
