Flowers for Grandma

The rain has finally stopped for a couple of days (woohoo!  Though now that I've said that it will probably start raining again any minute now) and I'm still playing around with the new In Colors and getting a feel for some new color combinations.


My husband's grandmother's birthday is next week, so I asked him what her favorite colors are and he doesn't know.  Neither do his parents, so hubs said to use purple and green (which are my favorite colors).  I added a bit of yellow because I thought it worked.  So for this card I used Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, and the sentiment is Blackberry Bliss because it's like a much darker version of Sweet Sugarplum.

I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:


I actually did put my sentiment on a banner, but both it and the card front are Thick Whisper White so it's hard to tell in the photo above.  I really should work on getting better photos of my cards.

Anyway, I'm also entering this over at Retro Rubber:


I got Summer Silhouettes in 2012, so it's four years old and it's retiring.  The birthday sentiment is from Rose Wonder so that's not retro at all ;)

Well kids, I've got errands to run, so that's it for me today.  See you tomorrow for the Friday Flashback!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Summer Silhouettes, Rose Wonder
Ink:  Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Blackberry Bliss
Paper:  Sweet Sugarplum, Thick Whisper White
Accessories:  hexagon punch, Dimensionals, pearls

This is one of my favorite floral sets and I used it on my card too! I'm sorry to see it go, but I won't get rid of it, that's for sure. I love how it looks in these colors and I'm sure your grandmother-in-law (is that a real word?) will love it! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
