Winter Flowers CMCC#74

It is feeling mighty chilly in Melbourne this past week, the cold gets into my bones and I don't want to go anywhere.We are looking forward to a public holiday on Monday, so I have plenty of time to hang at home and play with paper, although it will be nice to catch up with family sometime too. I'm hoping to get a big brown box of Stampin' Up! goodies before the long weekend, but if it doesn't happen.... (It did happen - {feeling excited})

A monochromatic colour challenge from  Colour Me...! suits our wintery season, and the flower from Choose Happiness, stamped in Sahara Sand on watercolor paper, then lightly misted with water was my choice today.

I was inspired this week, by my friend's creativity after she stamped a flower all over the card front in different shades of pink. I told her I'd be CASE-ing her, although this isn't exactly what I had in mind. The CASE version will probably come later.
Because You Care was a hostess set in the recent Occasions Catalogue. The font is rather nice and I will keep on using it. I stamped in Soft Suede, as black looked really stark when I first tried that. A ruffle of spotted, dotted lace in TipTop Taupe has been added to the bottom and some pieces of gold from the gold bakers twine, because I forgot to order the new metallic thread.

Don't forget to check out the gallery at Colour Me, and have a good weekend.
