Basket of Wishes

Well I just can't believe how fast this week is going. It's time for a Color Throwdown Challenge. Boy those girls are throwing some amazing colors at us. I'm new to this challenge site and for me they really are a challenge! This week's colors are...

I was also inspired by the Lemonade papers from Basic Grey, the floral paisley one, in particular so I started with that and here's my basket full of get well wishes. (When I was working on this I forgot that this was a Bella sponsored challenge - had I remembered I would have used one of my Bella's.) I needed a get well card so I used one of PTI's Vintage Picnic baskets as my focal image. I filled it with some daisies (although I'm not sure I've ever seen cranberry daisies unless they were Gerbers...) I had fun with this just mixing patterns and copic colors as close as I could get them. Matted with the Labels One nestie.


Here is a close up of the picnic basket - since I wanted an upbeat, cheerful card I went for fun, funky and wild colors on the image - even threw in a bit of paper piecing to pull in the paisley print to the liner for the basket.


I didn't have any Pomegranate so I used GinaK's new Cranberry Tart instead. Thanks for a fun challenge girls!

BEAUTIFUL card Pam! I love your fun & funky style on this card! Great way to paper piece the tablecloth/napkin in the basket with that awesome paisley print! Thanks for the inspiration - those are some tough colors to work with but you made it work well! :)

I LOVE this. Especially the plaid basket and the paisley liner. Looks like a very talented interior decorator set the scene!
