Kind Thanks in Chocolate and Kiwi

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I sure did! My friend Lizzy lives on a farm and we fed her goats and chased chickens around! It was quite fun and very amusing! Her mom makes the BEST Gluten-free goodies! It's always a delight when I get to have muffins or cookies that are gluten-free! Most things have wheat and/or gluten so I savor GOOD tasting baked goods that are gluten-free!

Anyways, onto today's card! The Just Add Ink blog had a fantastic color challenge using two of my favorites: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Barely Banana!

I paired those great colors with a sketch from Karen's Sweet Sunday Challenge and this 'Kind Thanks' card is what I came up with!

Using the Awash With Flowers stamp set, I rotated and repeatedly stamped the flower image to get a full looking daisy - since the stamp is just a half of a flower image - if that makes sense! I went out of my comfort zone quite a bit on this card stamping on Kiwi Kiss card stock and throwing a ton of brads in one spot for the center of the flower! It's always good to try new things and "expand your range" - one of my favorite quotes from the movie Step Up!
