Color Throwdown 453, and Time Out

Hope you don't mind a second post from me today ... just had to take advantage of a good-mojo kind of day! 

Here is what inspired me ... first these words from Time Out challenge #88:

'If you have good thoughts,
 they will shine out of your face like sunbeams
and you will always look lovely'  - The Twits, by Roald Dahl
 

If it were only true!!  Ha!!  Out of the mouths of babes, right?  anyway, I think sending good thoughts might just do the trick!

At any rate ... Broni's colors at The Color Throwdown #453 were just too delicious this week ...


and they worked beautifully, I think!


I was influenced by Amy Rohl, and Anita in France today ... okay, honestly?  almost every day... thank you ladies!  xx xx

=]  Michele

Supplies:  Frame from the New Day card kit by Altenew; Sunflower is the Gerbera Daisy from MFT, where I also got the dots, and leaf; sentiment from Altenew's Fresh Freesia - cut from two layers of Neenah Solar white #110 cardstock.

I sure don't mind if you post more than once a day. Your work is so clever and inspiring. I just so admire your unique perspective! What a beautiful frame to show off that gorgeous flower and leaf. The pops of red is just what makes me swoon. A little some extra/unexpected that works just perfectly. Love! :)
