My favorite color!

Have you ever had one of those cards that was a pain in your side from beginning to end??? That's this card for me!! I started using a completely different color combo and image, then I saw this new release from Fred, She said and I HAD to use it. Why I couldn't wait for tomorrow not sure. And I was going to use pink and brown since I love that combo but I couldn't find the right papers so I also LOVE blue and brown so I went for that. I started with the Parisian breeze papers since they are my favorites hands down. But I couldn't make them work. I did paper piece Emma's coat and boots with them though. So I took out my last piece of Afternoon tea paper and used that instead. The I thought the sketch from Digital delights would be perfect. Couldn't make that stick either so I used felt flowers instead of a strip of CS for the stripe and added some yummy choc. satin ribbon. I managed to get some pink in there after all with the flowers! I put on some brads and a few swirls and it was finally starting to come together! Then I couldn't get a decent picture of it to save my life. So this is what we have today! Check out the rest of the gals from Stamp Something, amazing cards today!!
