Rose Red is Not Just for Flowers.....PPA190, HSS178




The hardwood background stamp made the perfect backdrop for my card today.  I decided to pin up a few flowers since from the looks of things outside it's going to be several weeks before I see a flower or two in the yard.  Miss E seems perfectly happy with that..........and seems to have joined in with the color challenge in her own way!





There's a sweet color challenge at Pals Paper Arts this week and a wonderful sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

Linda, great use of the sketch. I am in love with the doubled arrow with that little bit of bakers twine. I also love the cut out and popped THX. The black arrow helps lead the eye right to the sentiment but, because you put the pink one over it, it doesn't detract from the sentiment. Genius!
Hugs
