Fresh Hello

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers.  I hope it is an enjoyable day for you.

I've gotten off to a good start - able to do some creating this morning.  I've used the colours from The Paper Players ( Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Baja Breeze)  and the sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches.

I've always liked this fancy Hello and haven't used it near enough.  Two of the images have been used from the "My Friend" set and one flower from "Mixed Bunch.  The "band" across the card was created using the "Framed Tulips" embossing folder which I've trimmed around.

Hope your day is fantastic.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Joan,
What a terrific way to combine the two challenges! Love that flower (I ordered that set and punch and it will be here on Tuesday!) Thank you for sharing your pretty card with us!

Wow! I love this layout and how you incorporated the challenge colors. The flower is fabulous, with its pearl center. I LOVE how the sentiment "pops" right off the page! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

Joan, this is a great combination of the two challenges and such a fun layout to be able to play up various patterns of papers! I like how you added a pearl in the middle of the flower and used a trio of pearls, as well. The bold "hello" in Poppy Parade is the perfect sentiment for such a happy card. So glad you shared your card with all of us at The Paper Players!
