Let there be Color

     A few weeks ago I purchased a new Cheery Lynn die called "French Lattice" and have been itching to use it. Thought it would be fun to use a plain background and use my die on patterned paper.  This particular paper had lots of colors in it and I chose to focus on the oranges.  I used a scripture from Our Daily Bread Designs along with their Elegant Oval stamp and matching die.  Then I embellished with some Zva pearls, and Recollections flowers with a few small leaves cut from another Cheery Lynn Die placed strategically around them....LOL....another way of saying to fill in some space.  I am getting some cards ready to send to the Church Bookstore and this will be one of them.  Also, the challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ was to make a card that showed something about the new season, I think flowers meet those requirements since as I look out my windows or drive around I see nothing but trees and flowers in bloom......I am loving the bursts of color throughout nature!!!  

Thanks for stopping by,
