Welcome to a fun, new version of Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop!!! We have decided to sorta raise the bar so to speak!

First of all, I would love to welcome those who are traveling thru the blog hop & hopping over from Helen's blog! It's a fun week here on the "hop"!!

Ok, so here's the switchup!  So, we always use our 3 colors from the color wheel for a challenge. Well, to keep it fresh, we decided to add a little "hitch".

So first the colors:

Island Indigo, Rose Red, Garden Green 
 Island Indigo, Pool Party, Calypso Coral

and now the hitch:

Gotta use a leaf on the card!

 Interesting, huh!

So here's the card:

Now when you think leaf, you think fall, right? But when I put either of these 2 sets of colors, I sure didn't see fall! 
So I decided to use my new Flower Shop Bundle & make a "flower" leaf! This actually came out cuter than I pictured in my mind!

I love the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder! Such a beautiful background it makes. Nice for fancy or otherwise.  
The leaves were punched with the Mosaic punch, and the little pokey things on the sides trimmed off. Then they were then embossed with the 
Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  Kinda cute, right??? See?

Yup, there's bling! Of course!!! A little Dazzling Details adds some excitement to the center of the flowers!
The sentiment is from Thoughts & Prayers.  I needed a Thinking of You card!

So no hop over to Liz's blog & see what she did with a leaf! Wonder if it's a fall leaf?? I just know that it feels like winter here & my leaves are all gone!

See you next time! Can't wait to see what twist we will need to make next week's card!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!
