Make A Wish

This week's colour combo for The Colour Dare is Elegant Eggplant, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Sahara Sand.  I decided to carry on with my efforts to let my uninked stamps see the light of day and pulled out these Hero Arts flowers and a PTI sentiment.
I paper pieced the flowers and leaves and popped the centre flower up on Pop Dots (I love those things!).  I used the linen impression plate from PTI on the card base and I ran the leaves through my Cuttlebug in the Swiss Dots folder (mimicking the dots on the flowers). I haven't used my Stickles in ages either so I put some purple Stickles in the centre of the flowers for a little shine.  Simple and pretty - a handy card for the stash!  

We have a long weekend this weekend.  Monday is National Heroes Day.  Unfortunately Monday is usually my day off so it's a normal few days for me but it will be nice to have hubby around for an extra day.  :)  Have a great weekend!

What a wonderful card - these flowers are wonderful. They're soft and bold at the same time. Thanks for playing along with the Color Dare this week.
