Pastel Flower Patch

Hi Stampers...

Sorry I've been AWOL for a while ... been busy deep cleaning the house now that the painting job is done and the windows are just freshly washed ... guess I could see the grunge better =) ... and also trying to stay cool while we were in the midst of the most recent heat wave (ugh).  Those are not compatible, let me tell you.  

So, let's make a card.  It will last longer and be more fun.  I visited one of my favorite challenges this morning (the Color Throwdown) and Wanda Cullen has chosen all my favorite colors ... pistachio pudding, crisp cantaloupe, and coastal cabana... how could I not play???  I immediately thought of my new Flower Patch set with matching framelits from Stampin' Up so that's what I went with.  I also needed a sketch as a taking off point so I went to see what Julee Tilman (Mojo Monday) had created this week.  Loved the sketch so here it all is....

I ended up making two cards since I had some spare parts when this one was done... I added another flower and leaf to the upper right.  Now I'm not sure which I like better ... ?

What I used....

Flower Patch clear polymer stamp set
sentiment from Peaceful Petals
Flower Patch framelits
pearls, score tape,  glue dots
inks - coastal cabana, crisp cantaloupe, pistachio pudding,
 old olive, bermuda bay to accent
coastal cabana, whisper white card stock
Sweet Sorbet DSP

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look 



  1. Wow, Pat, these cards are so gorgeous in the throwdown colors! So glad you liked them and played along with us again! You can now come to my house and clean! :-)

  2. You funny lady, you! Thank goodness I've been able to snuff that cleaning 'bug'. Lol. But seriously, thanks so much for the kind words about my cards. I follow your blog and aspire to, one day, be as talented as you. {{hugs}}

  3. I've just ordered that framelit and the flower patch bundle. Your beautiful card has got me even more excited to get them and start playing. LOVE everything about it!!!!

  4. What beautiful cards...I just love the embossed frame around the sentiment and the flowers are gorgeous!!!! Thanks for joining us for the Color Throwdown Challenge!!!!
