MFT, Color Throwdown......hello

Happy Wednesday peeps!!

I am off work today and it is a rainy/stormy day so I decided to play a bit at my stamp table.

I looked at the MFT Card Challenge Blog and found a fun sketch:

and I also used the Color Throwdown Challenge:

As you can see I turned the sketch on its side. I started with some white card stock cut at 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
 I rounded the top corners and then used a stencil to add a bit of color to the white piece. I used some so saffron ink and a sponge dauber over the stencil.

The roses are cut using Cherry Cobbler card stock and the MFT mini hybrid heirloom rose die.
I used some Pear Pizzazz card stock for the flourish leaf swirl. I then added a few small so saffron flowers around the roses.

The hello is die cut several times, and glued together using Early Espresso card stock. the base of the card is Early Espresso as well.
I really love that hello die!! I finished it up with three enamel dots in the top corner as per the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by today!
