Darned internal clock...

Would it be too much to ask for a little extra sleep on the weekend? Even a 1/2 hour would do. Nope...like clockwork, my eyes pop open, I look at the clock and it's 6:30. Same time each day, alarm set or not. Such is the gift of getting older...

Today's card is for the color challenge at Embellish Magazine.

I willingly admit that I'm not overly adventurous when it comes to color. I looked at the challenge at the beginning of the week and didn't think I could accomplish this. But as the week went on, I kept this challenge at the back of my mind. And then it came together.

The green in the flower is really much darker, couldn't get it to photograph well. The blue paper is from K&Co, brown is from Basic Grey, textured brown is from an art store (love it!), trim is from Making Memories, flower is from Prima, sticker flower is from Sandylion, sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink.

So now I'm thinking that I really like this color combo...thanks for dropping in today and for your comments. I love hearing from you.
Happy Saturday,
Ivanka

at least your internal clock is 6:30 - mine is 5:00 a.m.

great card - the splash of green is totally groovy.
