This month, Ellen Hutson’s Essentials by Ellen January 2017 Mix It Up Challenge is with Avery Elle.

Luckily, I have ONE Avery Elle stamp set – Many Thanks.

So…off I go to work on a card. And, looking at my bulletin board, the inspiration for the Essentials by Ellen PinSights Challenge (that closed on January 3rd) is still hanging BECAUSE it has important Offspring3 information stuck to it (Post-It notes, that I still need for this week). RED WHITE and GOLD got embedded in my brain.

Somehow, I combined the expired challenge and the new challenge. When I realized this, it was too late, I had already glued all the vellum flowers (die cut with the Bold Blooms Matching die set). I was committed! (or SHOULD BE, maybe!)

Here is the (expired) PinSight Challenge inspiration:

  1. An easy mistake to make! Or, serendipity, maybe? Love the floaty sea of blooms. I can see this in different colours for a wedding, too. Or for remembrance. Anything, really!

  2. Better late than never. The card is lovely.

  3. Haha! I missed the pinsights challenge too – but I love this – the texture and bold colours are just gorgeous!
