I noticed lots of ladies using the MME Gertie collection, which I absolutely love and agree are perfect for The Color Throwdown's color combo this week, and I wanted to make sure and put them together a bit differently than everyone as well... And at 3:00AM, my combo looked pretty darned cute to me, but today I am not so sure I like it as much lol.. ( does that ever happen to you? lol..) I am feeling it's a bit on the Busy side for my tastes.. lol But my DH says its fantastic.. Hmmm not so sure if he's just humoring me or not.. lol Anyway, here's my take on both the challenges and dp's too.. 8-)
Well as you know lol, my panels an BG were all made up with the MME Gertie collection and I chose to mat everything up with some kraft CS from my stash as well. To create my Fun little flower focal piece, I fired up my Cricut and broke out my Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge for the very first time! Don't know why I have been hesitating to try it out lol.. It made it so fast and easy to put my Darling little flower together and there are so many more combos to choose from too! I can now see I will be using this cartridge a lot!! lol 8-) To finish it all up, I stamped my Flourishes sentiment onto a fun little die cut tag with Memento Rich Cocoa, and shaded with a touch of Antique Linen Distress Ink, popped up my main panel with a few dimensionals and added a cute little button, all tied up with a bit of hemp twine. 8-)
Hope you all are enjoying the rest of your weekend & thanks so much for visiting today!
