Colorful Blooms

I created this card for last week's color challenge on Splitcoast (CC206), which was to use More Mustard, Kiwi Kiss and Rose Red. I've also been playing around with the Rolling Marbles technique, which I used on the white panel with the leaves stamped on it. It gives the paper a nice texture and it's a lot of fun. My kids really enjoyed helping me with this technique. :)

Speaking of kids, they are the reason why things have been so quiet here for the last week. Enavi was sick with the flu for most of last week. She finally made it out of her jammies on Thursday, but is still having some random stomach trouble. Needless to say, it was a long week, and I was trying to prep for 3 events as well. Saturday brought several inches of snow, and 2 of my events ended up rescheduling. I have to say that I enjoyed being at home with my family. Hopefully things are back to relative normal this week!
