Appealing flowers

I created this card late, late, late while watching a great movie called Frequency with Dennis Quaid. I used Beate's weekend sketch challenge and a color challenge on Splitcoast. I have never used these colors together and I can't even remember the last time I used Apricot Appeal or Ballet Blue. They don't even show up on my radar.

So this color combo is Apricot Appeal, Ballet Blue and Real Red. I used Friendly Flowers (Occasions mini) and Friendship Blooms (Sale-a-Bration) stamp sets. The only non-Stampin' Up items are the red Prima flowers. For the paper peircing I followed the dots on the flower that I stamped in red on the red cardstock. You can see this better in the close up photo. I like seeing the apricot through the holes.

Craft Warehouse, a locally owned craft store (like Michael's or JoAnn's) had a call for their 2008 design team. I've never tried out for anything like that before so I toodled on over there, bought some goodies, and made my submission items. Two cards, two scrapbooking layouts, and a unique photo memory project. I hand delivered my submission packet to their corporate office yesterday, well Friday, morning. Judging starts on Monday. They may even announce the team that evening.... I am waiting on pins and needles! I'll post photos of my projects here tomorrow (Sunday) or Monday.

Well, it's 2:42 am so I better get to bed. Gotta read before I fall asleep too so that'll add another hour before my eyes close.
