color challenge #328 wildflowers

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. This is shaping up to be a fairly busy week for me. I have my grandsons Tuesday and Thursday.
Some design team commitments starting with this card. And Friday night I am having a jewelry party here at my home.

That should be fun I just hope that the ones I invited come out. It's really great jewelry from a company called Premier Designs.
If you have ever been to one of their shows you know that what they sell is nice and so trendy.

So my card for today is one that I did for this week's color challenge #328 on splitcoaststampers. Betty, aka stamping to the wright, is our hostess and she chose the color trio of cherry cobbler, night of navy and crumb cake.

My image is from the wildflowers set from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps. I stamped in cherry cobbler and old olive ink.

The sentiment is from the same wildflowers set and is stamped in night of navy. I punched it out with a wide oval punch. I didn't have a scalloped punch big enough to layer the oval. My solution was to cut the scallop in half and layer it that way.

The patterned paper is from a retired Stampin-Up hostess pack. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the crumb cake layer and added some cherry cobbler seam binding over that. My bow center is finished with a night of navy button.

And that my blogger friends completes this card.

It's time to close this post. So until next time God bless....................
