FOSTV challenge

Hope you had a great weekend. I didn't do much of anything, worked in the yard a bit and then made a few cards.It was such a surprise when I went outside Saturday morning and felt Fall-like temperatures. Of course, I know there is plenty of hot weather left. And, being a summer lover, I'm glad.

This week the challenge at Friends of Speedy TV is a color challenge. You are to use pink, pale green, cream or gray. My card base looks white but I promise it is cream. The card is a square, rather simple card.

I'm using two Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co. stamp sets. For the sentiment, I'm using Daffodil Greetings and the butterfly is Old Summer stamp set.

Hope you'll join us this week. The stamp set being given away to the fortunate winner this week is Blessings.

Recipe:
Paper-Designer paper is BasicGrey/Wisteria
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Textile embossing folders, Prima flowers/Spring Mix
