Throwin' Down with Betsy's Blossoms!

Wow! I had a very busy week followed by a bought of what appeared to be a stomach flu but I am back :) Had a really nice relaxing day with my boys. We went out for a yummy breakfast (my first real food since lunch time on Friday) and then we went strawberry picking, YUMMY! We came home had lunch and had a rest/nap and then we were off to the beach for the rest of the day. Just what I needed to salvage a weekend gone, oh so wrong!

So here is the card I worked on this evening. The sketch is from Freshly Made and the colours from The Colour Throwdown. I really enjoy taking part in these challenges because it gives you a great deal of creative freedom but it requires you to put colours together you otherwise would not think of, at least me anyway!

My Challenges:

My Card:

Now I LOVE the look at this new edgelit die but I have to be honest and say, WOW what a load of work it is! I have a feeling I will only be breaking this puppy out for EXTRA special occasions lol
