Act 18 Staring Jen's SFYTT


What a delightful mix of colours Stacey came up with for this week's Curtain Call Colour Challenge.  I love navy and olive together and the other two colours are a fabulous compliment.  Will definitely be using this colour combo again.  I matched this up with Jen's Sketch For You To Try from this weekend.  I had to go with flowers because I saw lots of daffodils blooming yesterday as well as a cherry tree - in mid February!!!  We are definitely in  not going to know how to deal with the rain once it returns!  Warm temps, birds chirping, flowers blooming and a city that is a buzz with the Olympics - who could ask for more :D


Since Jen's sketch had smaller panels on it, I matched up my Marvy flower punch and my Martha Steward leaf punch for the flowers, and if you have flowers, you know you have to have butterflies too, right LOL!  The rest of the card is pretty straight forward.

Believe it or not, I may have to go out and mow the lawn because the grass is growing!!  Is that crazy or what??!!!

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me.  Blessings.
