~ Wildflower Love ~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog this Saturday in February.
It is a beautiful spring like day here in Pittsburgh. Crazy weather for February. It's a perfect day for going for a walk or some other outdoor activity. the local parks will be packed today with parents getting their kids out for some fresh air.
We are going to the University of Pittsburgh basketball game today with our son and grandson. I won tickets at a fundraiser that I recently attended. They are really good seats plus a parking pass came along with them. It will be a fun time. It's the first game we have attended this year.
So let's get rolling with my card for today. This is one that I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog.
Card Details:
Navy Blue Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Patterned Paper Panel: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Navy Blue Rectangle Panel: 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" (2nd largest of rectangle dies)

My choice of colors for my card today came from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #622. I am the hostess of that challenge and I chose mint macaron, watermelon wonder and night of navy for my color trio. 
watermelon wonder, mint macaron, night of navy
My background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "floral boutique" collection. Once colors and paper were picked, I decided on a card layout and cut the necessary pieces.

The circles are from the CottageCutz circle and stitched circle dies. Both are the 4th largest dies in the sets. The navy blue rectangle is from the 2nd largest rectangle die in this set.
I cut the wildflowers in the watermelon wonder color. And the dragonfly in the mint macaron shade. When I started the assembling of my card, I decided to use the Wildflowers 3 die and eliminate the 2 die cuts from Wildflowers 1.
I decided to add a mint macaron strip across my card and top that with some night of navy ribbon. I also stamped my sentiment on the white circle in navy ink. I used an embossing folder to add some texture to the mint panel.
I was now ready to start the assembly of my card. On the large panels I used double sided tape. On the wildflowers I used Ranger multi-matte medium. The wildflower dies have great detail as you can see in this close up photo. On the sentiment circle I also added some watermelon sequins.
Well Blogger friends, that's it for me for this post. Until next time........God bless
