Today and Always

Once again its Tuesday and I have joined the splitcoast color challenge...this was a tough one. Cameo coral, garden green, and ballet blue! I have never used garden green paper...and have never even opened my garden green ink {blush} I'm ashamed to admit that I get so wrapped up in my favorites that I don't venture very far from them.... unless its for a color challenge ;) So I struggled a lot with this color mix, but in the end I like the card. I stitched the GG panel with embroidery thread in a zig-zag, and tied a grosgrain bow of coral around it. The bird is stamped in BB and cut out and perched over a die cut by K&CO. a row of punched flowers with bling adorned centers rest under a coral stamped sentiment.
The piercing around the die cut elongates the lines of the stitching and was "eyeballed" for spacing thus the imperfection... that gives it the handmade feeling LOL.

I stamped the word always and punched it with the word window, folded it in half and placed one of the left over blue flowers from the boho blossoms punch under it.
What would you do with these colors??? I would love to hear from you!!
