life’s simple pleasures….

 All week I have been trying to get this card finished for the 63rd challenge at A Spoonful of Sugar blog. All you had to do was make it a floral card. I knew I wanted to use my image from Sarah Kay again.100_1456

I colored her in with copic markers (I will show the colors at the end). I found this piece of patterned paper by Foof-a-la called Autumn Stripe. Personally I don’t see Autumn when I look at but more lighter colors. The blue in the paper matched perfectly a retired SU color Buckeroo Blue. I also used SU Real Red and Certainly Celery. I cut these out and the image with my Spellbinders curvy rectangles. The flowers are by Prima and have a mini button by Jesse James in the center. The sentiment is by Amuse and I cut the label with SU modern label punch. I felt it still needed something, so I found the thin orange ribbon in my basket and wrapped that around the image panel only. As promised, the colors I used are shown below:

AAACCCKK. She is sending me more images and I have to re-do them. Luckily, I posted step by step instructions here so I can hopefully get them finished quickly.
