ColourQ 121



 Hi everybody!  It's raining here today so I thought I'd seize the opportunity to add another card to my "get well" stash.  I wasn't going for visually stunning here, just a nice rainy day greeting.


The colors are from ColourQ 121 challenge:  red, olive, mustard, kraft, and white.  The mustard accent was added using an old stash of SU patterned paper (gosh, this stuff must be at least 10 years old but it still works!).  Leaves are from PTI's Turning A New Leaf stamp set and matching dies (just got them with Christmas GC's--yeah!).  The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse's Irish Blessings.  The large red flower is a Martha Stewart sticker to which I added a pearl.  The tiny flowers came from Michaels' Recollections line (tiny pearls added).  The sentiment panel, which is popped up on dots, was punched with a Martha Stewart corner punch.  Also used a Spellbinders Labels 4 die on the sentiment panel, trimmed on the sides.  I added some tiny dots to the leaves with a gel pen to improve the contrast against the kraft.    Pretty simple!

Thanks for looking, and top of the mornin' to you!
