Fun with Flower's Week: Just Because

Happy Monday, All!  I hope that you had a nice weekend!  Since I'm waiting on my order of more goodies from the NEW! Holiday Catalog, I thought it might be fun to play with flowers this week.  So, today through Thursday, I will feature cards for my very own Fun with Flower's Week.  I just love flowers (even though I lack a green thumb), and I hope that you do too!

For this fun card, I turned to my Wildflower Meadow background stamp and coordinating embossing folder for starters.  My intention was for the background to be simply stated.  Then I went for lots of color--Island Indigo, Crushed Curry, and Real Red--and more texture by adding a banner that I cut from Silver Glimmer paper, some layered flowers from the Morning Meadow stamp set and coordinating Pansy Punch, and two hearts.  

I love color, and this card has just enough of it.  Please let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below.

TIP:  If you ever want to "punch up" a card design, consider adding bold, bright colors or pulling elements together that may not necessarily be the perfect match.  I did both for this card.

Enjoy today and thanks for stopping by!  Until next time, happy crafting!
