If Friends Were Flowers

More from me today.  Something I don't usually do but I wanted to show another of the cards I did for the fan club challenges.

Late afternoon we went to watch one of our grandsons play in his baseball tournament. He is in Pony league and they are on regional playoffs right now. If they win a couple of more games they will advance to the world series.

But, today the game was rained out after 2 innings. We left to drive home in a heavy downpour. After we arrived home safely, the local TV station announced there was flash flooding on one of the roads we take to get back home. We passed the intersection where the flooding occured not 20 minutes before we heard the report.

There was flooding on this same road and intersection 2 weeks ago. We haven't heard how bad it got today because the Olympics have been on all evening.

So for my card today. This one I made for the color challenge #386. Peggy was the hostess and she chose 3 great colors for us this week - primrose petals, summer starfruit, and baja breeze.

I used some of the new Stampin-Up designer paper - the "patio party" collection.
It has all 3 of the colors that Peggy chose. My baja breeze paper is from the ski slope collection.

I added some ribbon tabs and a punched flower with one of the new in-color dahlia buttons.

I also used the fancy fan embossing folder for my vertical strip. My tilted sentiment panel is using Verve's "great friend" set. I stamped it in baja breeze and added some leaves from the same set.

This is also for Angela's (aka jellybean74) & Teresa's (VA.sunshine)  fan club challenge.
