Light Blue and Cantaloupe Make an Awesome Pair

Yes, pair. Most assuredly NOT pear.


We're continuing the idea of solid block flowers with this Hero Arts sentiment which, by the way, is an old, wood-mounted stamp that was discontinued long ago. Sorry about that.

These flowers are also from Papertrey's Beautiful Blooms. See, Sue. You really do need this set.

The flowers are arranged in a visual triangle, very much on purpose. The triangle keeps the focus on the sentiment while adding balance and unity to the design. The sentiment is stamped in SU Pumpkin Pie (oh how I love that color!), the flowers in Memento Baby Blue, and their centers in Memento Cantaloupe. In retrospect, I wish I'd layered the white panel in a thin mat of Pumpkin Pie, but when retrospect occurs after adhering the panel, it must stay in retrospect.

All aspects of retrospect leave the prospects looking suspect.

That makes no sense, but it was fun to type.

Tomorrow we're back to Christmas. That Hero Arts clear set I got last week totally captured my attention. LOVE it!


  1. Simply beautiful and so pleasing to the eye!

  2. Love the card! On a colered base no less!
    The nonsense sentence was fun to say also!

  3. Love your card and also your explanations. TFS your knowledge.

  4. Pale blue! I guessed right! And this one is gorgeous, too. :-)

  5. "All aspects of retrospect leave the prospects looking suspect"......... Really? Bwahahaha!

  6. yup, you were right, perfect!!!

  7. Hi Susan, I see where you're coming from, the LO is brilliant. I love your sentence and it makes perfect sense to me:0) Gay xxx

  8. What about using a small strip of pumpkin pie along/under the bottom of the panel instead of a full mat?

  9. Pretty, pretty. I like how complementary the cantaloupe and pumpkin pie hues are. And wait, you wanted to add an _extra_ layer? :P

  10. In retrospect I love all aspects of the prospect....

  11. retrospect is suspect because it is based on hind site! LOL!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
