Unwinding with Flowers

Hi and happy hump day! I have been so busy this week with VBS and swim meets, but I've still managed to carve out some time to make a card. I made this using the colors from Color My Heart and the Sketch from Atlantic Hearts. The theme is relax and unwind from Heart 2 Heart, and flowers have always been relaxing for me, plus these colors are very soothing. I'm also entering this into the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says.

I used the Happy Times paper pack and stamp set. We were allowed to use gold or silver on our projects, and the paper had the prettiest gold and pink paper that made this card turn out gorgeous! I do not have Blossom yet, and I don't know, but I assume that the pink in this paper pack is the same as Blossom. Correct me if I'm wrong! I used Blush ink to stamp the flowers.

I also do not have Linen yet, so I used Colonial White paper and ribbon. I'm not sure, but on the computer Linen looks a little grey, but I think it replaced Colonial White?

I hope you can come join me this week at my favorite Close To My Heart challenges!

Materials used:
Cardstock: Colonial White, New England Ivy
B&Ts: Happy Times
Stamps: Happy Times, Pretty Petals
Ink: Blush, New England Ivy
Other: Treasured Puffies, Colonial White crochet lace ribbon
