The Challenge Card that wasn't...

I really wanted to play this week with the CR84FN color challenge this week. The colors are pink, light blue, and peach and I thought it was a lovely combination. So last night I rummaged through my stash, found some My Mind's Eye paper and started creating. When I was putting the final touches on my card I realized...hey, that's orange NOT peach! How did that happen?? Maybe I was just too tired to see straight.


I bought that flower at the scrap expo I went to in February and it was a pain to work with. I ended up using a whole bunch of glue to get it to stick. But I do love it!


I just bought some toothpicks from Target to make cute little flags with. Look! Cute little flags!!


So there's my challenge card that wasn't. Even if it doesn't fit the challenge I'm happy I got to squeeze in some scrappy time. That's a win in my book.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Mara this is sooo pretty! The flower looks kinda peach to me, maybe that will work. Love the colors and the bling at the side. That flower looks great on that bow!

Such a fun card. Too bad about the challenge, but I think it's fair to say that we've all been there. I've been known to make a card for a challenge past the date.
