Friday challenge Color challenge

Well it's time for the challenge at notimetostamp cause it's Friday y'all. Did you ever go to a party and feel like a real pooper??? Guess that's where the term party pooper came from and that's me today because I wasn't thrilled with this color combo.Now I love purple, lavender, and ivory, but putting in brown turned me off. Sorry, but that's just me, a real party pooper; however, as you can see I did play along since I love to be part of the Friday challenge. I took the easiest way out possible on this and used a Crafty Secrets Cotton Scrap from a sheet I had hanging out in my drawer...hiding like a little critter waiting to be found and I found it and used it. Lovely Lilac flower with an ivory background.I just did a little mounting of the colors and added some little flowers I colored purple and added some blingers and I was done.

It's the weekend and hopefully you all got your taxes done and by now are just knee deep in your tax return money. Oh, you're saying that's not the story?? Well I got mine done back in Feb. and rushed to the bank when the check came to me as here in Michigan ( a pretty near bankrupt state) it's like do it now or it may be do it never cause there's no money to return. I made out pretty well so I'm going to treat myself to a dinner out with a friend and who knows perhaps even have a little drinky poo ( cause I am a party pooper...get it!). Have a good weekend friends and stampers. See you next week.

So lovely mom! Lilacs are my favorite. I really miss having them in the yard like we did over on Normandy -- the smell was divine! Your card is just as divine!

This is gorgeous, Pat! Lilacs are my very favorite flower ... and of course, they don't grow in South Florida ... so I'm always thrilled to see 'em on cards. And this one is a beauty!!

So, to be completely honest, the chocolate brown looks fabulous here!! I know you don't favor it, but it really makes a frame for the gorgeous layers and the focal image. But whadda I know ... I still believe in Santa.

Thanks so much for sharing this and for joining in this week's "Stamp Simply" color challenge!!

Sending hugs!!

Rubbermaid, lovely choice for choco to back the branches and lilac blossoms highlighted in layers of lilac 'tints'. Blingers balanced the need for 'light on the subject' - so fragrant and eye appealing. Great spring card!
