Flower Girl

Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog. Today I have a card that I made as a DT member for the Digital Tuesday Challenge a couple of week ago. Due to computer problems I was not able to upload it.

As always, I have a hard time matching the colors fo paper. I read about matching patterns which is quite easy, but the colors seem to baffle me. Anyone else have the same problem? Did you finally find and easy way to match it all up? I would love to hear your tips and tricks.

I adore the paper from Bearly Mine. I have so many that I sometime have a hard time choosing which ones to used. I did find some fun matching papers for this card.
Aren't the tulips cute. I really like the soft colors and ease of matching the other paper. I am not sure what this style is called but it looks like color splashes to me, lol
For the flowers I thought some flower soft would be fun. I finally bought an itty bitty paint brush, which makes all the difference when adding the glue to small areas. As I said before, I do not use the glue that comes with the flower soft. It is just to hard for me to squeeze out of the bottle. I use the Aleene's tacky glue instead and it works just as well in my opinion.

The image is from Spesch Designer Stamps. She is so adorable, I just had to choose her when the DT had the opportunity to choose an image to use. She is called Forest Elf and can be found here. I felt so badly getting a free image to use and then not being able to upload it for the weekly challenge. I am so glad that the computer is finally up and running so that I can share it with you.
 Hugs,
