Color Throwdown #444

I've always admitted to being a wee bit afraid of color ... gray is my favorite - what does that say about me?  Well, there's a challenge in town that totally gets me... 

Color Throwdown #444


BONUS!  Look at these fabulous Lily of the Valley- a favorite as a child, and I can still conjure their fragrance at will!

I've been playing with a new set from Flora and Fauna Clear stamps: Succulents.  Here are a few I've shared on IG:

Their darling Glass Cloche die made it so easy!
Winnie & Walter gave it a pretty stage.
 
An easy bit of doodling grounded these little vases perfectly - and simply!
 
For my Color Throwdown card, I just stamped!  using a few fun stamps from Altenew as garden beds, I found a great way to 'grow them my way!'


You just know I won't stop at one card with these colors!

Thanks for the visit ... always a pleasure to see you!

Ah, lilies of the valley! My favorite springtime flower...I actually got a few to grow next to my house and I pick a sprig each time I walk to the bus stop! These are delightful takes on those pretty colors! You grow, girl!
