The colors for Color Hues #41 are a favorite at Christmas, for sure - but today, I brought red and aqua together for a first-time play with a new to me set from PTI! I must give credit for my design today to the one and only Kelly Lunceford! I bought this set [after waiting for ages for it to be back in stock] based on her gorgeous card which you can find here. Thank you, Kelly! You know you had me at grey!
I loved the drama of Kelly's dark grey card base and frames, so I found a few from my own stash to accommodate my feathered family...

Now I know what you might be thinking - how in the world will I add a number to my card? You can find many fun ways - here's just one of them:
Make sure you visit The Flower Challenge team members, and our wonderful guest, Kailash! They've all made beautiful cards with lots of ways to use numbers on your cards - so no excuses! I'll be COUNTING on you to fill our gallery with your loveliness - lol!

Hello, my friends - thanks for stopping by today! I'm so happy to be Playing Cards with another of my blogging friends today: TK Watson from Time 4 Cards!
TK happens to be one of a handful of people I surprised with a phone call many years ago. She and I have had lots of chats since the first - and even have crafted together over the phone - without FACETIME! Good thing we both have very good imaginations, right? lol
Okay. Here was our assignment for May 2022:
- There MUST be flowers
- Remember Mom
- also use embossing [dry or heat]
My mom has been gone longer than I want to remember, but she is in my heart always - my card says it perfectly:
- My flowers come in the form of washi tape today - Pinkfresh Studio's Rainbow Floral washi and coordinating die. I've arranged them over an oval of white from which I had cut a label frame.
- the negative space provides a positively perfect place to tuck in this sentiment [Altenew] that says it all when it comes to my mom.
- My embossing was achieved using a Stampin' Up folder called Tasteful Textile

My friend Nancy sent me a wonderful gift and kindly named me the butterfly Mama! I'm so pleased by both!
This gorgeous Picket Fence Big Beautiful Butterfly die takes up a lot of real estate on a card - all I had to do was add a bit of interest to my card panel, and a few pretty blooms to tempt her to stick around! lol
My 2-piece butterfly was cut from white and vellum, and even though I snipped one of its wings, she looks perfectly happy here on this buttery yellow!
Thank you, Nancy for this beautiful gift - I'm definitely looking forward to blooming more butterflies on my front porch soon! Wish you could join me! I'm fluttering over to see how your butterfly bloomed...
