Italian Garden

****First I wanted to share that a card I made a few weeks back was shown on the Melissa Frances blog yesterday.  I  used the beautiful Melissa Frances paper pack from the Flourishes store along with the Country Charm Labels set and my favorite Cotton Linen Ribbon that I MUST buy more of.  It makes the prettiest bows.



Today Flourishes is having a Noon time color challenge.  We are using one of the sets from the newest release called Italian Garden.  Here are the details on the challenge:

It’s safe to say our brand new set Italian Garden inspired this noon-time challenge, just look at the lush colors of tomatoes, olives and olive oil and you’ll see what colors you need to include in your card or creation – red, green and a neutral (white, tan or ivory).





Supplies:
Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White, Kraft
DP: Basic Grey, Webster's Pages
Stamps: Flourishes/ Italian Garden
Ribbon, Twine, and Button: PTI Rustic White and Fine Linen
SB Dies: Classic Circles, Blossom
PTI Die: Banner Boarder Die
Copics

Here are the links to the Design Team member who are playing along:

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather
