Wishing You Well

***Third Post of the Day!***


Just checked the weather forecast for Toronto.  Looks like it's going to be in the high 80s but the humidity is supposed to be 55 - 65% which is way better than here where the humidity is usually 75 - 85%!  I think I may be able to handle it.  :)
Squeezing in a few challenges before I go starting with this week's ColourQ challenge.  I don't have any of the new In Colours so I had to wing it and there's that dreaded coral again!!  I think I got a bit closer to an actual coral colour than the last time I struggled with it.  I made the pinwheel flowers using a Woodware Craft Collection punch and mounted them on a flourish vine.  (I have no idea what company the vine stamp is from so if anyone recognises it please let me know!)  
Supplies:  CS: SU, Bazzill; Stamps: PTI (sentiment), unknown (flourish); Inks: VersaMark, SU; Embossing Powder: Ranger; Punches: Woodware, McGill; Gems: Doodlebug; Other: Glossy Accents

Gorgeous card Jen! Love how you have used the inspiration colours on those pinwheel flowers! That flourish is sooo sweet, sorry can't help you with it's history, I have a few mystery stamps myself.

Love the pinwheels Jen, they look great on the flourish. Coral is not a fave of mine either :)
