Sunflower's CAN be blue......

...especially if one is making a card for Kathy's Color Palette  challenge over at Lily Pad Cards. This particular color grouping caught my eye this week.  The colors look to me to be two different blues, two different creams or beiges and a brown or taupe color.  I like this because nothing about this particular color scheme "popped" and I thought it would be a real challenge personally to make a card that would appeal to ME.....a person who likes that big POP of color.  So, I sat down and messed around and finally came up with a card I really REALLY like.  This was so unexpected too.....I mean there is no orangey reds, purpley pinks etc.....my usual pop-a-licious colors.  Now, I did make a "mistake" where my buttons are.....that was supposed to be a row of three pearls but for whatever reason my hand jittered and I smeared a somewhat largish bit of Glossy Accents.  So instead of my usual bling I had to go all button.  Anyhooo...here be my card.



                                                            
I hope you like it too!  The Stickles aren't quite dry yet .....I noticed it looks kinda chungy in the photo but, in REAL life it is sparkly and pretty cool!

Thank you so much for popping by....I always appreciate your visits and comments.  Have a good one!

Be well,
Sheila

Oooooh, Sheila! I love your glittery blue sunflower! (my favorite color). This is such a pretty card.

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog - the heart border is a paper punch from Martha Stewart, which can also be manipulated to make a "doily" shape and a few other border designs.
