PTI Color Challenge- 3

It's me again. I'm back with yet another card for the PTI color challenge. This color combo comes straight from Melissa Phillips. Such a gorgeous combo... And it naturally made me think of leaves and flowers. I think that darn Hibiscus Burst is determined to grow on me with all of these color challenges. I do have to admit that I don't mind it so much on this card. Perhaps because it's the flower color, and it's nicely balanced out by some greens (which are complimentary colors).

Blooming Button Bits got dusted off for this card. A few buttons, pink jewels, a sneaky sentiment off of the side, ribbon color with my copics. Did I mention I don't like HB... I don't own any ribbon or buttons in this color... So where did the buttons come from? Sweet Blush and (don't tell) Raspberry Fizz. Sneaky, sneaky.

I'm benchmarking kids today, which I have to sickly admit I always enjoy. I have a sub, which allows me to sit and read one on one with each of my kiddos. This middle of the year benchmark is my favorite... Growth is SO visible. It's also relaxing to sit and read all day instead of teach, hehe.

Here's hoping your day has a few moments to relax. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is just lovely...embrace hibiscus burst!!! I love her :) The buttons are fabulous and it's nice to mix up the pinks :) Enjoy your day and feel lucky! We have to do our reading assessments during class time with no help!! I even use my prep time for the low ones so the classroom is quiet :)

  2. I never tire of that fabulous set. Yo have used the colours wonderfully. Enjoy your reading time today. When my kids were younger I was a class mom who would come in an read with kids once a week so they got some one on one reading time. Loved it.

  3. Your cards are beautiful! And I love your blog design...very stylish. I've left an award for you over on my blog. I hope you'll stop by and take a look!
