Less Is More Challenge~The Color of "Your" Eyes

...........and don't it make your brown eyes blue......lol......
for some reason this challenge makes me think of the old Crystal Gale song...
the challenge from Simply Less Is More is to create a card using your eye color...
I chose to use a 2 step stamp set from SU  using both Bashful Blue and Pacific Point...
the flowers were stamped and then cut out and mounted slightly "popped"....
I used a silver ribbon for the stems.....
now on another less then happy note....
 tomorrow I go in for my arm and hand surgery.......
I hope it solves the problem.....
will be in splints for 3 weeks.....
recovery is 3 to 6 months, if at all!!

Hey Kiddo! Love the clean and simple look of your card and love the use of the silver ribbon for stems. That is a great idea. I also wish you much success today with your surgery. I'll be thinking about you and hoping that this fixes you up as good as new! Best, Curt
