More Eastern Blooming ...

embrace life 5So maybe I'm a little obsessed by Eastern Blooms (and Embrace Life!), but I just really LOVE these sets! I just hope that it makes it to the new catalogue on April 1st or I'm going to be a little upset ...

Another K Werner colour challenge! I must admit, I wasn't sure how the blue was going to fit with all those Earth Element colours that I love - it just seemed that the blue wasn't going to fit, but after putting it together I actually like the colours together. I guess that's the idea of challenges - to make you put together colours that you typically wouldn't and to get you outside your regular comfort zone.

My rechargeable batteries in my camera died on me while I was trying to photograph this card, so I had to scan it instead and unfortunately it didn't turn out looking as good in the scan as it does in real life, but you get the idea.

Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Polka Dot background
Colours: Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Brocade Blue
Accessories: Buttons, clear EP, dimensionals

Sharlene this card looks amazing! I think you need to go outside your comfort zone more often if this is what happens!!! Oh, running total for my Relay for Life cards is now $492. I'm just blown away.
