Red Flower Hello Card

Hello and Happy Friday! I hope you have an extra day off this week in honor of the Fourth of July. My hubby is off with me today and we are planning to do a few fun things around town. :)

The Red Flower Hello Card I'm sharing with you today was created using the color challenge CCMC362 at Create with Connie & Mary. The colors are: Real Red, Lost Lagoon or Crumb Cake/Kraft. I started by searching through some of my stash of discarded ideas and I found the woodgrain oval. It had already been whitewashed with Craft ink and looked like a nice focal piece. Then I searched through my patterned papers for the challenge colors. The Lost Lagoon is from the All Abloom paper stack and the sponged background paper is from the Irresistibly Yours specialty paper. I've used a lot of retired products on this card but I love mixing the old and new. The stamps sets used are Petal Potpourri and Perfect Pennants. The final touches were adding the silver brad in the middle of the flower and three silver sequins. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and have a happy and safe holiday weekend!
