#14 Card Challenge for Joan

Well here is the card I came up with for Joan's #14 Card Challenge. This was a challenge, I just did not care for these colors together so I really struggled.
Products used were:
HCPC 3388 Spring Cardinals
HCPC 2294 Aztec Gold Sunflowers 1
HCPC 3318 Daisy Patch Flowers
HCD 703 Daisy Patch die
HCPC 3376 Distressed Leaves
Spellbinders Nested Leaves Die
Floral Vine Punch
Beaded Circles
Standard Large Circle
The 5X7 card base is Ivory from Gina K., the red is Real Red from Stampin Up, I'm not sure where the patterned paper is from other than my scrap basket. The Leaves are also Stampin Up card stock. Every thing is put together with Zip Dry Glue.
Okay that's it for now, we have had strong winds and lots of rain all night long and it's still raing, every thing is looking so green, it's God's way to Spring Clean. Anyway, I'm gone, need to dust, vacuum and do all that other fun stuff we get to do on the weekends LOl. Until the next time..........

Well my stars, this is gorgeous! I just love the sketch and how you did the bird. Heading out to find a gown for the wedding. Wish me luck! Praying that the wind does not blow us away.

Um...if you want some sun, come my way and my house could use some vacuuming :) Of course we craft as well. Love your card, I think the colors work well together I like them, very pretty. Have a great day, sorry the storm found it's way to you, we had hail from it and it rearranged our patio furniture, but at least it didn't land in the pool.

Very pretty Olga! I like that border punch and the way you used it. It was a rainy/very windy weekend here too.

Pretty! I love the white embossed little bird scene. Hey, where do you find envies for the 5x7 cards?

Challenges are really good sometimes for making you try stuff you wouldnt normally, and then you find out it works! :)

This is another great creation Olga, very elegant and I really love the colours.
