Flowers Speak

There were beautiful flowers  delivered to my mother-in-law's I'm cracking away with thank you cards.

(stamps:Simon Says Stamp Wild Beauty, Papertrey Ink Super Stripes,My Favorite Things Flowers sentiment  die:Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Elle-ments)

 This is my inaugural display of the SSS Wild Beauty set, which I matched up with my frequently used stripes and sentiment.

I initially was aiming for a color challenge and swerved to the left with patterned paper out of the color zone.
I didn't even think about it until I started to post this...
Maybe I'll give those colors another whirl and focus next time.
At least those colors motivated and inspired me; am I right?
Thanks for stopping by friends~

Ah, Marlena, but that PP is perfect for your beautiful card so that's why your mind veered! I think it focused BETTER! Having said that, however, I hate it when I lose track of a challenge that schparked my interest in the first place!

I'm very sorry for your family's loss. Your thank you cards will be as appreciated as the flowers were! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell
