CCM Saturday Hop - Hello New Colors!

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is to use any of the NEW REFRESH colors. I wasn't sure if that included returning colors that are part of the refresh, so I didn't use any of those. But I did use my new favorite blue (no surprise there, 'eh?) Azure Afternoon. It is just the prettiest clear medium blue, which I think we've needed for a while!

I used the Cheerful Daisies bundle with the Fresh as a Daisy DSP because that cloud scene just puts a smile on my face.  Can't you almost feel the breeze and hear the birds singing? 😊 The mat behind it was cut with a Radiating Stitches die, as was the sun peeking out from behind the greeting.

The daisy was outline stamped with Crushed Curry, then filled with Daffodil Delight. The center is Crushed Curry over stamped with Pecan Pie, giving it the illusion of depth.

That's all for today. I hope you have a lovely weekend. Thanks for stopping by! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori de Groot at Loritamarie Crafts.
