It's been a while since I've played along with a challenge, and this week's Color Throw Down definitely caught my eye! It reminds me of Spring popping out all over and I am ready for some warmer Spring temperatures, how about you?
With these colors as a start, I needed to make a card for a family member who is starting a new chapter of her life. I had some stamped, but not colored, blossoms from All That You Are, so it was easy to add some Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, and light Old Olive with Stampin' Blends markers.
The fussy cutting was kind of a PITA.....wish there was a die for that image! But I really wanted a lot of the yellow gingham to show, so away I went with the Paper Snips.
The greeting is from Strong & Beautiful, and was perfect for the encouragement I wanted to send. Inside it says "Keep reaching for your dreams, I will keep cheering you on!"
