on my mind

This is the card I made for theTuesday color challenge on splitcoaststampers. The colors that our hostess, Betty wanted us to use were blush blossom, cameo coral, ruby red and an optional cocoa.

I started it yesterday then had to leave to go take care of my grandsons. When I finally got back to the card last night, I wasn't able to get a good photo. The colors looked so different so I decided to wait until morning to try again.

Then I started taking pictures of the flowers in my yard and decided to psot them. I kept getting side tracked all day today.

I stamped my flowers and colored them with prismacolor pencils and markers. For the largest one I added a button that I cut from a sizzix die. The smallest flowers have the ruby red buttons.
My corner element is a cuttlebug die-vintage and that is done in cameo coral.

Time to turn out the lights in charmed life land for another day. Blessings!!
