Our March team challenge was to use one or many of the upcoming retiring in colours. I chose Tranquil Tide as my focus as I have 1/2 a spool of ribbon to use.😬 I’m happy with the end result and this card is making its way to a friend going through a major life shift. Why not send someone a card rather than a text? I bet it would mean the world to them.😀 #gillybeancrafting #incolours2017 #sharewhatyoulovesuite #instablog

Do you notice how I have framed the stitched rectangle with a scalloped rectangle?  Wondering how I did that?  Well I manipulated the scalloped square of course!!  I did a live video of the process so I’ve included that below. My apologies that it is sideways - I usually always get that sorted out.

 I wanted to mute both the floral image and the background behind it so both are stamped off; mint macaron for the background and memento ink for the flowers. I wanted light black but needed to use memento so I could colour in with blends.  Otherwise I might have used Smoky slate or basic gray.
