In My Prayers..

Hello! Ah, Wednesday is here. Ava and I leave for Los Angeles on Saturday and I cannot wait. We WERE going to Germany, but that didn't work out. :(  Then, we were going to go to NY, but THAT didn't work out So, we are going to Los Angeles with my BF and her daughter. A girls trip! Should be fun!

Today, I'm here with my 3rd card as a Color Throwdown Guest Designer. Eek! That means I only have two weeks left..bummer. It has been such a blast working with the DT. Anywho, so this week's colors are brought to use by Kristin!

Here are the lovely colors:

Are they not so perfect? I didn't have Wild Wasabi ink (that has been rectified!), so I used Papertrey's New Leaf. It worked pretty well as a substitute!  I wanted to make a springy get well card and here is what I made:

My card is pretty CAS for me. I TRIED so hard to not use patterned paper. The card feels naked to me, but I managed to create without the aid of the "good stuff" I am also seriously addicted to those scallops. They're just so much fun to use. The little flower is a resin flower I picked up from Stamper's Dream a while back and they're so cute!  

Well, that's all for now. Be sure and go by and check out what the other DT members have created with these colors and then come and play with us at Color Throwdown!!

Keva this is beautiful. It doesn't need anything else. It doesn't look plain, it just look elegant.

This is such a cute card--that little bird is adorable and so is the flower--perfect! Have a safe trip--prayers going out to you!

WOW, if THAT is your New Leaf ink I'm totally jealous. Mine was horrible and dark and didn't look a THING like this! I'm also impressed with these colors. I can never put purple and brown together and make it look this good.
SO LA huh? SOunds fun!

I love your card! It's just a touch on the CAS side, but embellished perfectly, to make it balanced just right!!
