Well yesterday I started walking again. I used to walk 3 miles a day but had gotten out of the habit when Jess moved in. I have a walking partner so I am sure I will be able to get back into the habit. I so need this for my health and sanity. I will keep you up to date on my progress!
Today is our Coloring Down the Lines blog hop. We have a full hop this week! Our colors were chosen by Sandy.
Stampin' Up color matches
Try Stampin' On Tuesday so I decided to use it.
I wanted to use Early Espresso for the vertical strip. I then figured the Mint Macaron would make a nice base and the other colors could be used for flowers. I needed some way to address the horizontal strip on the left hand side of the sketch. I was standing there thinking about it when all of a sudden I saw the leaf strip in the framelits. I decided to use it. Now that I had my base and the vertical strip completed I needed to make the flowers for the circle elements. It was easy using the flowers in the Botanical Builder framelits. I used the other colors from our challenge. After I had my flowers added to my card I only needed the sentiment. I chose to move my sentiment and add it in the space created by the leaf framelit. Here is my completed card.

Thanks for visiting me today. I will be doing some video taping today if possible - depends on what Jess has planned for me! :) Have a Wonderful Wednesday and if you don't have the Botanical Builder Framelits make sure you order them!
