Blue and Brown Florals

Well hello there, it is our FIRST challenge at the NEW 
Beautiful Blossoms challenge blog and
Donna has a beautiful mood board for inspiration,
all that pretty blue and yummy chocolate brown color!

For my first card for the challenge
I used a pretty Prima paper from the Nature Lover 6 x 6 pad
and a stamp set from Altenew Fabulous Florets.
The sentiment is also from Altenew's Sentiment Strips 2.

The new challenge is all about flowers and who doesn't LOVE beautiful flowers?
Make sure to visit Beautiful Blossoms and see all the beautiful
creations from my teammates, you certainly will be glad you did!!

Diane, this is such a beautiful card. I love the butterflies in the background, the doily adds the perfect place for those florals to live. Thanks for a wonderful team project for our 1st challenge at Beautiful Blossoms!

Oh Diane I simply LOVE this card. That paper is beautiful and flowers/die cut panel fit the color perfectly. Your added dimension is such a great touch ... really gives it life! Beautiful job my friend!

Diane, this is beautiful!! The bold flowers are real eyecatchers.

PS: Yes, I am so lucky by having a big craftroom with gathered crafting stuff (more than 25 years) and I can't throw away anything, even no snippets.....
Everything can be used some day!

What a gorgeous make, Diane! Your background paper is perfect for the mood board and those flowers are colored beautifully! Browns and blues are a lovely calming combination.

Stop the presses, this is sooo gorgeous! This particular shade of blue is one of my favorites. Paired with the soft brown it's absolutely lovely. You know I love the designer paper, and the flowers are perfection. Altenew has some really nice stamp/stencil/die combos. Congratulations on your first post for the new challenge!
