Spring Floral

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

Today is the first official day of summer and the longest day of the year. I love this day and this time of year when the daylight hours extend to after 9:00 pm. It's a beautiful day here as well. Our flower gardens are in bloom and look so pretty. It's all my hubby's doing, I can't take credit for any of it. He has such a great display of color in the yard. 

Now onto this card for today. I made this one for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #949. We were to use gorgeous grape, pale papaya and polished pink for our color trio. Optional this week is anything goes. I used jewels for an embellishment.
gorgeous grape, pale papaya, polished pink

I needed a card of encouragement for my friend who just received a not so good report on her husband's health. He was diagnosed with kidney cancer. 

I used the Spring Blooms die from CottageCutz for the floral arrangement. They are cut in the challenge colors plus mossy meadow (neutral) for the leaves and stems.

The background pale papaya designer paper is from the Stampin' Up "expressions in ink" collection. I framed my design with a wide rectangle die also from CottageCutz. 

My sentiment is a stamp from the Penny Black "blooming sentiments" collection. To finish off this card, I added a few pale papaya jewels.

Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
