using an Isabella Freebie

Happy Sunday! ....hummin "this is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it"....

Had so much needed "me and my cards" time yesterday...and here is one of the cards. Used one of Isabella's freebies...you can grab it from my sidebar! I love it...wonderful to color, pop-up the flowers, whatever you want! 
for anyone who hasnt tried a digi yet (and I have one special BFF in mind LOL), this one is perfect for your first one!!! just print and color (save it from my sidebar like you would any picture)

now before you ask...what kind of flowers are these??? dont have a clue - was just going for the color challenge over at Vicki's new challenge blog for Mark's Finest Papers "to use red, white, blue"....(and Vicki is also their new Blog Challenge Design Team Coordinator! Big congrats to Vicki! pop over and check out her new team)...
 I used the sketch from JUGS challenge and  this also will go into the challenge at  Fun With Shapes to make a Mother's Day card....whew!
    I dont usually think about combining challenges, seems complicated, but intend to do more...

you know the saying "hard to teach an old dog new tricks"..but I'll get the hang of it!

have a blessed day,


OH...and if you can squeeze it in - dont forget the kickoff challenge over at Isabella's Sketchbook - winner receives SIX FREE IMAGES!!! (ends on Tuesday night)

red, white and blue is such a classic combo I love them together and I love how you used them with your flowers. I never would have thought to put it with flowers but I will now. Thanks for the inspiration.
