Color Throwdown #781

I'm squeezing in a card to Color Throwdown Challenge #781. Here's the challenge graphic.

And here's my card using mostly Altenew products.

Flowers and leaves from the Mini Flower Cluster Layering Die Set were cut from
white card stock and colored with peachy/pink colors from The Stamp Market.
Two white card stock panels were cut from Reverse Wonky Rectangles then embossed

The panels were adhered together by a hinge and the flowers and leaves were
assembled on a slight diagonal. The sentiment and shadow were adhered below
the flowers and the card was finished off with sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you're having a good weekend!

The Flower Challenge #88 -- Add a Heart

I'm so happy to see The Flower Challenge back from a well deserved hiatus.
This month's challenge theme is to Add a Heart and it gave me a chance to use
some (two year old) Greetery products that were still in their packaging. Oh my!
Here's my card and I'm hoping that the heart isn't too overwhelming.

The heart wood slice was assembled and spattered then topped with Forget-Me-Nots that
were colored with Zig markers. I had no idea what color forget-me-nots were until I looked 
it up, so I apologize for these bright pink ones.
I added the love word and popped up the heart on Altenew's Masonry Wall. At the last 
minute I decided to add the sub sentiment to balance out the design.

I might redeem myself and color these blooms again in their "proper" color.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
