Botanical Builder Framelits

Hello Everyone ~ for our Coloring Down the Lines blog hop today, I spent some time playing with the Botanical Builder framelits.  Make sure you check out my card below.

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

To design my card I wanted to use a sketch challenge.  I loved the sketch at 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!
