A Little Color on a Sunday

I hope you are having a lovely Sunday.

I'm here with just a quick post today.
I am so thankful to have had some free time this weekend
{even if it was self-imposed!}
to make a few cards that had specific deadlines.
It has been a L.O.N.G. time since I've had a chance to play
along with my friend Mona's color challenge, CR84FN.

 This is one of my favorite color combinations and has been a trendy
one both in paper-crafting and in fashion.
I pulled out my Authentique 6x6 in 'Blissful' along with the new stamps
from MME called 'Miss Caroline'.

I stamped the large flowers in Slate & the tiny flowers in Lemon Whip,
both inks from A Muse Studio {available from my webstore HERE}
I stamped then, overstamped without re-inking, which is why you
see a shadow-effect.  It's hard to see those tiny yellow flowers,
but they are there and they are a perfect accent.

Labels 18 from Spellbinders is such a nice size for so many cards.
The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Tomorrow starts another busy week for me, so I am thankful to have had
some extra 'personal' time to spend with you this weekend.
It's always a joy to have you come by.

Purple and yellow are such awesome colors together. Never underestimate the power of complementary colors.

Julie - this is stunning. I love the lacey backing and really pretty papers. But it's the sentiment that really catches my eye - it's lovely! Thanks for playing along with CR84FN!
