PTI anniversary, day 4: color challenge.

If you are looking for my giveaway post, click *here* - there's still time to join in the fun for a chance at a great gift-certificate!

I chose to work with Lisa's favorite color scheme:


The first thing that popped into my head was to create something floral.  The color palette just screams blue sky, green grass, and red blooms, doesn't it?  But I can't seem to get out of my "love" rut :)  The hubs better watch out: I'm gonna have to start hiding these cards in his sock drawer or something...


I stamped the fancy flourish in spring moss, created a bitty aqua mist envelope, punched out some "pure poppy" glittery hearts, and mounted it all onto a kraft base.


I created the little envie in a flash:  just grabbed a 1 3/8 inch square punch and scored around the edges.  Fold everything in and you have the perfect tiny envelope.  Good things come in little packages, right? (that's my motto, since I measure a measly 5 feet in real life... lol.)






Hugs to all my new followers!  I look forward to getting to know you better, and thanks for helping me start off my 2nd year of blogging with a bang :)
