A colour challenge & a card from Sage

Recently, on the PTI forum, Melissa Phillips shared this colour combo:


I decided to use it to make a card with my new Vintages Linens stamp set & dies.


I stamped the flowers in melon berry & sweet blush and added some simply chartreuse
details to the limeade ice leaves.
The jar is from Lawn Fawn's Summertime Charm and the 
sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Sentiments.

And, Sage also has a card to share today.
She made it for her dad for his birthday.


She used some PTI On the Farm stamps and dies.
The little cat is from Mama Elephant's Three Amigos.
She had fun colouring it in using my new Zig markers
(she's used them more than I have so far!)

She's linking her card up to Simon Says Stamp's 

Thanks for looking!

Just wanted to leave a comment for Sage to tell her that her card is brilliant!! I love the farm scene she created and her stamping and die-cutting is more precise than mine!! She is a wonderful cardmaker, just like her Mum!

Leigh, your jar of flowers sparks yet more memories of farm visits. My grandma always had a mason jar of flowers in the house, whether on the table or on the counter. If we lived in a place where I could grow flowers, guaranteed I'd follow her lead! Your card fills me with joy...

Sage, the card you made for your dad is awesome! Your little fox is darling and having him sharing space with the cows is absolutely brilliant! Adding the barn and windmill to the background: what a special touch! Hope to see more of your cards in the near future, because you sure are talented and creative!
