Fiery Florets

I am always drawn to blues and greens but every so often I pull out some warmer colours and challenge myself to use them - in this case Poppy Parade, Tangerine Tango and Peach Parfait. I have some cards using this set Fabulous Florets in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine this month (yay!). For those, they requested a nautical colour palate. This card here is more 'fire' than water! I rock 'n' rolled the flowers in Peach Parfait, then Tangerine Tango, then Poppy Parade ink. I have balanced out all that 'heat' with a large amount of white space.
And then, after all that I looked at this card and would look pretty in blue!


  1. Wow. This is gorgeous, Marelle. One of my favorite with that stamp for sure!

  2. yay, congratulations on getting into the mag....going to go & buy it. The colours look great marelle

  3. Are they your cards in BH&G. I saw them in there and that's the reason why I ordered the stamp set! Didn't even know they were yours! Congrats

    Colours look fab like that. Really great card.

  6. I just love this card, Marelle... I remembered it from my e-mail updates I get from you and I just now came back to find it again because I have an idea for a CASE. Can you believe it?? Me? Picking up the ink again?! :) Thanks for the inspiration - as always. Love ya! -Michele
