~Primrose Love~

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Just sitting here watching the Olympics and the Americans have just swept the slopestyle skiing event. 
We have the gold, silver and bronze medals in this event. This is only the 3rd time that we have swept an event in the winter Olympics.  It was amazing watching all the skiers in this event. They are so amazing with the flips they do.
Now onto my card for today.  This one I made for the color challenge #464. Sallie was our hostess and she chose a challenging combination of basic gray, pumpkin pie and primrose petals.  She also wanted us to create an interesting background.
My background is done with the wax paper resist technique. I used the Cuttlebug folder “kassie’s brocade” and embossed the wax paper. Then I placed it over my cardstock and used my iron to transfer the embossing. Sponging was done with primrose petals and pumpkin pie ink. Not sure why the pumpkin looks like yellow??

I used the Memory Box die “Chloe Stems” and cut my 3 flowers. Added some Primrose petals ribbon and a primrose dahlia center.

The love word was cut with an Impression Obsession die “love heart” and added it to a pennant cut with a Spellbinders die. It is a simple card but I like how it turned out.
Well, it's late and time to dim the lights in Charmed life Land for another day. So until next time ............God bless.
