A Friend Loves ~ CMCC63 & PP236

Well, what do you know?  Wednesday has rolled around again and we have another fabulous challenge for you at Colour Me...!  This week we'd like you to highlight the trio of Marina Mist, So Saffron, and Sahara Sand.  You can also add any neutral in there if you need to!  I'm also entering this into the Paper Players #236 clean and simple floral challenge.  I think they fit well together, don't you?

I love the flowers from the {Bloom with Hope} set and daisies have always been one of my favorite flowers.  I stamped several of them in a random pattern around two edges of the cardstock and colored them in with my Blendabilities markers, which are discontinued btw.......
It's such a huge bummer!  At this time Stampin' Up has not announced any plans to bring them back, but I'm hoping they'll find a way to remedy the situation and bring back something similar.  
Back to the card.....I also inked up my brand new set {Banner Blessings} which go perfectly with the "sketched feeling" of the flowers.  I paper pieced the banner in So Saffron designer paper which gives it extra oomph!   

As I've said many times over, I STRUGGLE with clean and simple.  I feel like I did pretty good with this card though.  I HAD to add some details with paper piercing and ribbon and then a cute little dangling heart punched from {You Brighten My Day}, which I thought also lent itself well to the "sketched feeling" of the other stamps.  To make this fun little charm I stamped and punched two hearts out of the So Saffron DSP, looped a piece of  thread around the ribbon and then "sandwiched" the thread between the two hearts.  

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Bloom with Hope, You Brighten My Day, Banner Blessings
Ink: Memento Black, Navy & Daffodil Blendabilites
Paper: Marina Mist, White, & So Saffron DSP
Accessories: Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon, Itty Bitty Accents punch pack, Paper Piercing essentials pack

Make sure you hop over and take a gander at my fellow designers blogs!  They all do amazing work!!!
