Sister's Purse Color Challenge #26

The kids and I decided to have a fun day today and now that we are home I can finally get this posted. I picked this one for today's challenge just because the colors intrigued me. I hardly ever use the Bold Bright color family and this on made me use two of them. I like this Flower Child Purse and for $25 it's a steal. You can find it at or a directly HERE

Color  to be used this week:
Chocolate Chip, 
Pink Pirouette, Tempting Turquoise and Green Galore

You can add a neutral 
if you like, 
but it's not necessary. 

For this weeks card I saw a tutorial - and wouldn't you know that I didn't bookmark it to share - that showed me how to emboss with my Nestabilities using the Cuttlebug. I had been wanting to do this for a long time, but every time I tried I couldn't get it to work. So thank you unknown lady who helped me out - I really appreciate it. Once I got that accomplished I set out and created this card. The ribbon came from the kids stuffed animals they got in their Easter baskets - I loved it and thought that it would work with this Color Challenge perfectly. Enjoy!

You can find my "Flower Lily" card on SCS - HERE.
