CR84FN Color Challenge 47

Hi Everyone, Happy Wednesday! Today is my last day of freedom...tomorrow I go back to work. I have been off work since my ankle surgery, which was back in December. I have been crutch free for about 1 1/2 weeks and things are going okay. Physical therapy is painful but i'm told that is to be expected. So here's to getting up before the sun rises to get my workout in, packing my lunches again, and jump starting my work brain. Wish me luck!

I participated in the CR84FN color challenge again this week...isn't this color combo pretty??


Here is my card...


To be honest, I think it's a little plain. I feel like it's missing something but i'm not sure what. Stamping? Butterflies someplace? I just wasn't sure, so I left it alone. I made some rolled flowers from plain cardstock, the scalloped flower was punched with my scalloped circle punch. I must remember to do that again.


I do like the sentiment, it's from a Papertrey Ink stamp set that was long forgotten in my stamp drawer. Here's to finding lost treasures!


Hope you all have a great Wednesday...thanks for stopping by!

So beautiful! I love the rolled flowers and the colors and the bling! Sometimes when I feel something is a bit plain I find embossing (dry) usually gives it just the right touch. But I love your card the way it is!
