COLORING DOWN THE LINES BROWN SUGAR!

Welcome over to a new Coloring Down the Lines blog hop! I'm once again doubling up with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge because I really liked this one!!!
If you've "hopped" over from Helen's blog, it's great to see you again!!!I hope you enjoy here as much as you did there! :)

So this week's colors are
Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, Bermuda Bay
OR
Baked Brown Sugar, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler.
 I chose to use the first one because I just love those colors together! That Baked Brown Sugar is becoming a fave. It's an odd shade of brown, & that's why I like it! It seems to go with everything! But we are now working in the new In-Colors, & I really love ALL of those! So pretty!!!

So here's the Mojo Monday 300 challenge sketch:

It just seemed to "call out" to me!!!

Now here's my card!
I really had fun with this one! It came to me easily! Some take forever to design. This one just fell right into place!
I used the ever popular Oh, Hello stamp set for the sentiment. You may recognize the flowers from Secret Garden also! I used the coordinating Framelits to cut the flowers out. Those Framelits save so much time! And now with the Magnetic Platform it makes this whole process so quick, easy & fun!

The Bermuda Bay is embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder. I cut out the sentiment squares with my new Square Framelit Collection!!! So easy to get the sizes just right!!!
Embellishments were simply a bit of 5/8" Crochet Trim and a few of the 
Pearls Basic Jewels!

Here's a close up!


So this is a fave card for me!!! I can't wait to hop over to Liz's blog & see which colors she chose! I always smile at her designs! So great!

On another note, I leave in 2 weeks for Convention in Salt Lake City!! I can't wait to hang with my friends-old & new! I will be hooking up with my buddies from Canada-Team CanAm!! Girls, get ready for some purple!!!! lol
 I was so excited yesterday when I got my nametag in the mail!!! Now to finish all my swaps! Nope. Not even close to done yet!!! lol

Until next time!!

Happy Stampin'!!!

    Hi Joni, Sam here. Let's not rub our noses in it for those who don't have the magnetic platform and are longing to get it but will not let them have my money till God only knows when. I'll get it sometime, I hope. Have a great 4th.
