Color Inspiration #39

I get to post my Color Inspiration card thanks to bitterly cold winds and school being called two hours late. I was already up and ready to exercise so I figured I might as well stay awake and accomplish a few thing and then exercise! To see what others have posted for Kristina's color combo, click HERE.

I've got a funky card for you today! I actually am casing one of my own cards that was inspired by this purse that my friend had in church last year. I kept glancing at it and was heavenly inspired, I guess!

I got the Green Galore in there with the Dotted Lines jumbo wheel! I'm so happy to see that in the catty. It's a favorite! A rare thing for me is to use retired papers but since I had some Real Red and So Saffron DSPs from the previous hostess packs, I thought I would put them to use instead of letting them sit there. I paper pieced them onto the birds that I stamped over the lines. The flowers just have a touch of green on the leaves and saffron on the center of the flowers.

I finished it off with some Real Red ribbon and the some punched double hearts using the Heart to Heart punch. I added the word LOVE by using my Big Shot and the Naturally Serif get a double alphabet all on one die for just $19.95...that's a value!
