Kristina’s Color Challenge #37

kw37-450

As soon as I saw Kristina’s color challenge this week I new just what I was going to do.  You see, I’d been hoarding these big felt flowers for — get this — two years! And, they were the perfect colors…

I’d also been hoarding some rub-ons.  So, I decided to make an acetate card.

The hardest part of the challenge was actually taking the pictures — I had to put a brown piece of paper on my desk,  hope you can see the flowers stamped on the acetate.

The colors + the felt flowers kinda reminded me of some old 6o’s-70’s curtains I saw in a kitchen at a ranch house one day.  Brings back memories of a yummy pancake breakfast with fresh eggs from the chickens outside!  And it’s making me hungry…off to have a snack!

Supplies:  Scattered Flowers DesignBlock, gems, acetate notecard, and small felt flowers by Hero.  I rubbed a white felt flower with soft pool shadow ink to turn it blue.  I stamped the acetate notecard with the DesignBlock using white Staz On ink — love doing that!  Ribbon, hello rub-on and large felt flowers by American Crafts.  The green cardstock was cut with a Nestibilities die + my Cuttlebug.  I put a white cardstock piece cut with the same die on the inside so I’d have someplace to write a message.
