Verve June Week 5 Challenge

I absolutely LOVE this inspiration picture!!  It gives me warm fuzzies :)  A gorgeous celery green with touches of saffron, kraft and white.  Oh sigh....LOL!  I would have been a young girl in paradise if I had had this room growing up. 

The sketch brought me back to reality as I had to ponder what to do with it.  I decided to use the flowers from the bedspread as my focal point on the card.  Out came my SU jumbo flower punch and the embossing folder Kathy gave me (still loving it, Kathy!!).  Swiss dotted the centers of the flowers, added brads in the corners and called it a card.  Think I should have put some pattern or image in VersaMark on the Kraft panel...may have to go back and change that.  A quick, simple card that will be easy to duplicate in these or other colours.

Off to make an anniversary card for my hubby.  It's our anniversary on July 1st, which also happens to be Canada Day so he can't ever say he forgot our anniversary LOL!

Thanks for popping in today.  You guys are the best (((hugs))).

What's In It?
Paper:  Kraft, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, White
Accessories:  SU Jumbo Flower Punch, Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties, Swiss Dots and Nat Embossing Folders, Brads,  Dimensionals

Oh, you went for that room!!! LOL Love that big flower punch...I'm so tempted to get it :) Mmmm, all the colours look great against the kraft :D My classroom is packed into Tony's cargo trailer waiting to move into my new room on took less time than I thought it would...but it helps having a dh this time around with the right vehicles...I moved on my own with just a Jetta the last 2 times. Hey!! I just noticed the new blog!!! LOL Where did you get it or is it one of the new blogger ones? It looks great!!!
