Thanks for FMS111

For today's share, I decided to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches 111 challenge to see what my creative juices would come up with.  I love these challenges, but I typically discover them after the deadline has already passed.  What about you, do you enter design challenges?

I originally started out with a Christmas cardlike the design suggested...but it was BORING!  I tried to jazz it up, but I had to walk away and start a new project.  Then, I was inspired by some flowers that are on my desk, so I went with it.  I LOVE flowers, so any excuse to design a card with flowers is excuse enough for me!

For this thank you card, I turned to some tried-and-true favorites.  I love the Calypso Coral polka dot paper from the I Am Me Designer Series Paper, so I put it work as my background.  Then I turned to one of my favorite flower stamp sets--the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set.

Stampin' Up!'s Mixed Bunch Stamp Set
I really like the color combination I used--Calypso Coral, Gumball Green, Chocolate Chip and a hint of Island Indigo.  Without the Island Indigo, this card was teetering on boring too, but I believe that the blue brought it to life.

Well, I'll just have to wait and see what the judges say.  Although I'm not concerned about the final outcome, it's still exciting to see which design they liked.  Please let me know what you think about this card by leaving me a comment below.  I'm excited to hear what you think.

Have a great day today, and, until next time, happy crafting!
