Color Throwdown #485 ~ Hello Friend

Hello crafty friends~  I'm popping in with a card I made using this pretty color palette from Color Throwdown.

It's so clean and fresh, I love it!
 I used one of my favorite flower stamps from PTI called Gran's Garden.  My grandmother had many flower gardens that I remember her tending to so carefully when I was young.  

I took right after her with a love for flowers and gardening myself, though I'm not quite as good at is as she was.
You can find all the details on the challenge and see lots of pretty inspiration here.

I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Floral Frenzy

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Gorgeous! I love the black accents as they add so much interest and make all of your pretty colors POP! Your flowers are fabulous! I too had a gardening grandmother and mother and I love to play in the dirt! :)

  4. Beautiful floral card, I love the pretty colours against the black and white!

  5. Nice combo of colors on the flowers and the black centers tie in nicely with the black background paper. Such a pretty floral card.

  7. So gorgeous are those flowers and I love the layers of black and white polka dots and stripes too. Wonderful edged die cut too.

  8. This is really beautiful! I love your take on the inspiration photo Birgit!! It is wonderful that you emulated your Grandmother's love for gardening. My grandma did "Tatting" and wanted to teach one of us girls but sadly none of my mother's 5 daughters were able to pick up.

    The colors you used are over the top on this card and the polka dots are THE perfect touch!! : )
