cc133 Mustard Olives

I am so happy! I had an idea and it came through on paper! That never happens for me!LOL! Todays color challenge was mustard olives: bashful blue, more mustard, old olive. I knew I was going to use Beate's weekend sketch #20. I love doing her sketches! So with the layout and color combo out of the way I just had to decided on a stamp set. I've been trying to set out sets that havent seen ink in awhile that way they are in my view so I will use them. I loved pick a petal as soon as I saw it but Ive only used it 2 times and one was for a class. I even got the chipboard to use with it that I havent touched yet. I have no idea but everytime I use this set my flower ends up looking like big blossom so today I just went with it. My card base is bashful blue w/flannel plaid stamped in bashful blue. I used Beates measurements for this card. The old olive layer measuring 2 1/4 x 5 is stamped w/sanded tone on tone. The bashful blue layer measures 2 1/2 x 3 1/4 and edges are distressed. I stamped the sentiment from polka dots and paisly in old olive and attached two brads to finish off this layer. My main image layer is 3 x 3. I doodled the edges to make a frame to match the flower. The flower petals are chipboard covered w/the stamped image. To finish off the card I tied mustard grosgrain ribbon around it and tucked the petals under it. I am very happy with how this card turned out. Hope you like it too!

Brayden had his first field trip today and he was so excited and so cute. They went to the fire department. I realized all the pics I took were of the class so I can share them on here but they were each given a fire hat and badge so I will take a pic after school to share. Madison wore her glasses to school today lets cross our fingers they make it through the day. Her Daddy buried his glasses in the school yard (the exact school Madison goes to) when he had to wear them to school.LOL!
