Field Flowers Hello

This is my seventh card in my Could Ya? Should Ya? Would Ya? Yea! series. 

In this monthly series, I plan to try something out of the norm... i.e. a size of card I rarely use, a technique I've wanted to try (or try again), an unusual fold, a card for a bizarre holiday, etc. I also plan to try a new recipe on these days - not a card recipe, a kitchen recipe.

This month I went old school... well, old school for me. When I first got into stamping, I mostly stamped with colored inks (some 2-step stamping, too) and little or no coloring. I decided to do that again for a change of pace.

I did okay stamping the bigger blossom, but I'm way off on the little one. UGH! I hate that - but I decided to leave it rather than starting all over. I think I heard somewhere that if a card is too perfect it doesn't feel homemade... so this one is definitely homemade.

And don't forget... there's the added feature of this series - try a new recipe. What's for supper? Country Girls Do It Better Crockpot Creamy Chicken Nachos. I hope we like it.

Last month I made Easy Cream Cheese Chicken, which we all three enjoyed.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Hey, Jeanette! Sorry I've been away. Hurricane Hanna took away the electricity for a couple of days, but I'm back. I agree with the imperfections giving the card the homemade feeling, but I also think they should be to a minimum. I love your card and the smaller flower looks great. From here, I don't see anything wrong with it at all. Great colors and beautiful background. TFS!
