Rustic Peace. . .

Happy Friday! I thought it would never get here! I am working until noon and then we are off to the mountains. I cannot wait to get up there. Hopefully, I'll get some good pictures! I have some blog posts scheduled, so please come back! Of course, I know there are a bazillion other blogs out there so go ahead and spread the love! ;)

The card I made today is for two challenges: Mercy's Sketch and the Color Throwdown. Here is Mercy's Sketch:

And here are the Color Throwdown colors:

I absolutely LOVE these colors together. They are so rustic looking, even with the pearls.

So, here is my card:

There are swirls all over this card..on the cherry cobbler panel, the pearls, the star, the sentiment. I just love swirls! Head on over and play along if you get a chance - these colors are so fabulous!

Well, I'm off. I hope you guys have a great weekend! Oh and if, by chance, you see me around the web either commenting on blogs or on a website, please remind me that I said this would be a tech free weekend for us. I have a feeling I am going to need some accountability partners to get through this! ;)  Laters!
