Umbrellas for you...
Thank you for your service...

Boho borders...

I am starting off this post with a heartfelt Thank You to our men and women in the armed forces both past and present.  Most people are happy to have a three day weekend and don’t give any thought to the purpose.  So while you are celebrating an extra day off of work – please remember our servicemen and women who, with their bravery and courage, protect this great nation.

I also want to say that on June 2, I will be celebrating my first year anniversary as a blogger!  I am planning to celebrate with some blog candy so be sure to check in on the 2nd to see what it is and how to enter!

Now to today’s card!  I planned on using the colors from the MFT color challenge.  So I went looking for a sketch and found the Fab Friday challenge.   I thought the colors were fabulous so I substituted rich razzleberry for ripe raspberry, pink pirouette for tickled pink, and lucky limeade for fuse green. 3 (508x640)

I made some background paper with the new SU! Bohemian borders stamps and my inks.  I am really excited about these stamps – so many ways to use them!  I alternated the different borders with the limeade, pink, and razzleberry.  I love these colors together – so fresh and bright!  Then I stamped the pear image from an old hostess set in limeade. 4 (640x316)

To keep the color scheme going, I used cardstock in all the colors and layered everything up.  A button and some twine and the card was complete.  I will have to remember this color combo for a future card!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I am off Saturday and Sunday but plan to be back on Monday.  Have a safe and pleasant weekend everyone!

Supplies:  CS:  PTI white and kraft.  SU! rich razzleberry, pink pirouette, and lucky limeade.  Inks:  SU! rich razzleberry, pink pirouette, and lucky limeade.  Stamps:  SU! Bohemian borders and faith in nature.  Other:  Button and twine.

Great pairing of old and new stamps. The mix of bohemian borders and the colors is a nice fresh look! And happy blogging anniversary! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

OK, you've hit all my favorites here today, Jane! Purple and green is my all time fave color combo, and well, if I could dip my house in Lucky Limeade, all the neighbors would need sunglasses, lol. Love the stamps you've chosen, too, I've always been sad that I let Faith in Nature get away! Thanks so much for joining us at Fab Friday this week!
