Rubbernecer tulips for Color Throwdown

Hi Everyone.  Happy Monday.

I have a quick card for the Color Throwdown challenge this week.  Here's the fabulous, soft, palette:

I wanted to create a soft, watercoor version of this challenge.  It felt really floral, but I decided I wanted to pull out an older floral stamp set from Rubbernecker.  It is one of the earliest floral sets I have.
I started with some watercolor paper and white heat embossed the outline images.  I used some Winsor and Newton watercolor markers to color the image
For the background, I was torn about what color to use.  Blue?  White?  Green? Pink?  No, I decided to do a really soft grey.  The other colors really distracted from the fabulous fotness of the flowers.
Here's a close-up of the flowers.  I love the softness of the pinks against the heat embossed flowers.

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of shimmer card stock and added a little piece of pink embossed patterned paper from My Minds Eye.
here's the inside:

Of course, I had to stamp the envelope, too!

On a personal ntoe:
I had a great time in my craft room today.  It was such a wonderful, cool escape, from the heat outside.  I'll be back later in the week with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a lift tonight.

That is simply lovely. What a pleasure it would be to receive such a piece of art in the mail!


Such a soft, beautiful card, Jaydee! I love pinks and greens, and you know I love anything floral!


Love your card, Jaydee. The soft colors and the white embossing, plus the beautiful shape of the die make a stunning card. TFS. Enjoy your week!


Jaydee... I always love your cards. The sheer elegance and simplicity of this week sketch is perfect...love it so much!
