These colors remind me of my Mom...

She always wore very tailored outfits with basic colors.
Beige or taupe was her favorite and she would contrast it with red...a lot!

 
and
 
I started with kraft card stock and layered with red card stock.
I added the grey layer with another piece of kraft card stock on the top.
On a piece of red and cream patterned paper I stamped the flower from Altenew's "floral motif" set using StazOn timber brown ink.
 I made 5 of the flowers and trimmed them all out with scissors.
Once I had them individually I used glue dots to attach them to the front of the card.
Using the timber brown ink I stamped the verse from Altenew's "floral frame" set.

Last of the posts for the Altenew Challenge.

Let's see what tomorrow brings...unless I'm quilting!
