KWerner Color Challenge #56

Hello! It's time for another color challenge over at Kristina's. I made two cards last night for the challenge, but I wanted to wait until today, so it was nice and sunny outside to take the pictures. Well I woke up this morning to a cloudy day, it hasn't been cloudy or rainy in over a month, until today! That's about right! :) Anyway I took them outside to get the best light, and this is the best I got! This card has been sitting on my desk for about a month, unfinished! I just needed to added a sentiment, some blue, and some lighter color leaves, and that's it! I used another SU! yellow cs for my base, because I don't have So Saffron. I made this card for a lady that we have known for years, and she just bought a house down the road from us. My husband has to go to her house to look at her A/C today, so I am sending this card along with some Cinnamon Streusel Quick Bread that my daughter baked last night.(She LOVES to bake!) Just a little gift to welcome her to the neighborhood!
ETA: The idea for the flower card came from the talented Ashley Newell.

Here is the bread I'm giving her too!


I made this card for my niece that has a birthday in October. (Can you believe, it's already finished?) I got the idea for this card from this blog! It has a little pocket for a gift card, or you could just put money in it, it's a great idea for any occasion! And of course it has sewing, which I LOVE! Supplies:

Oh wow, I'm in love with those fabric flowers! I almost used one on my Kwerner challenge card! Yours look way better though.

LOVE LOVE the fabric flowers!!! I did that once last year for a mini and it's not as cute as yours! I should try it again, getting ready to do another mini. TFS!!!

Stunning flower card!! I love how they're arranged :) I need to kick my butt into gear and participate in this challenge. The first two attempts were so ugly! I think the third sketch I've come up with will work. *crossing my fingers*
