Thank U

thanku

Hello dear friends!  Happy Easter!  Today’s card uses the delicious colour palette over on The Play Date Cafe challenge blog.  Grey, aqua and chartreuse…how yummy is that!?  I knew the grey paper I wanted to use, then threw down the aqua ribbon on top of it…oh, yeah!  I wanted a bold sentiment for the circle shape and some kind of flower embellishment.  I have 2 prima canvas flowers underneath one double crocheted flower…how sweet!  I’m always a little nervous when using text patterned paper…I know one of these days I will have it upside down and not notice until posting it!! LOL  Wishing you all the blessings of Easter today and all year :)  Hugs!

Moe, way to rock this color palette. I love, love, love the texture of the flower. It is gorgeous. Well everything on the card is! The boys have all found their baskets...they're playing a bit before we all are off to Mass. Happy Easter to you my dear friend!

Beautiful use of the color palette, Maureen! The pop of chartreuse is fantastic, plus I'm dying over that gorgeous flower. May have to try my hand at making some of those!

What a fabulous color combo--your interpretation of the challenge is beautiful. Don't worry about using text on your cards. Even if it is upside down, no one will notice with cards this beautiful!
