Mod Squad - Curtain Call - SSS Wednesday Challenges

Another rainy day, so it seemed like a good time to craft.  I don't usually combine challenges, but I'm going to give it a try today.  This card is being entered in the Mod Squad Color Wheel - 3 Color Challenge, hosted by my good friend, Judy, the Curtain Call Bouquet Challenge & the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge - Make Your Own Background.

Here's my card

For the Mod Squad Challenge my 3 colors are red, purple and green.  For the Curtain Call Challenge I used flowers and picked up on the reds and purples.  For the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge I stamped my background using the Super Gingham stamp set from PTI.  Thanks so much for coming by to look!

  1. Oh my gee, Sharyn, this is absolutely stunning. Your coloring is just beautiful, I always love the way you color flowers. And that checked background is just perfect, as is the twine for accent. I would have sworn you used patterned paper for this - awesome stamping!!! Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge

  2. WOW! That gingham background looks gorgeous, stamped so perfectly I thought it was Designer Paper! Look at those Challenges, you go girl....I hope you win them all!!! Beautifully colored flowers! I especially love that red die where you have the Baker's Twine in the little notch! NICE!

  3. What a lovely color combination, Sharyn, and I love your big gingham background, so cheery! Thanks for sharing this with us

  4. You could work for Hallmark! Seriously, this card is so attractive, and charming. the background that you made is amazing, it looks like design paper. Excellent job putting it all together in a gorgeous design. I sure wish there really were blue geraniums.

  5. WOW!! I also thought you used gingham background paper. This looks amazing and makes me think of all those wonderful spring & summer picnics to come.
