Hello Blossom

This card is for the Holiday Focus challenge for this month's Creative Crew.  

CCREW0813HF - Holiday Focus:  August is one of the few months that we don't have any holidays, however, August does begin the garden "harvest" time, so this month your "holiday" is to celebrate anything garden related.  Take a look at the Gingham & Garden/Garden Delight suite (p80-95).  Re-create or case one of the projects on these pages, however, you must change at least two/three things to make the project more your own.  Tell us which project you cased and what changes you made.

I chose the card on p82 and while I kept the layout the same I changed the colors; the background and the sentiment.

I inked up the flower from Gifts of Kindness using markers and stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock which I'd cut out earlier using my Silhouette Cameo.  The card base was embossed using the Alphabet Press embossing folder and the sentiment from Four You was stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink.  The color scheme came from the Color Coach - I've said it before but the color coach is an amazing tool and great when you're looking for new and fresh color combos.

Thanks for looking.
