Color Hues #65, Beautiful Blooms #5 and NBUS #51

I looked over my floral stamps trying to decide what to do for the Color Hues challenge, not finding anything I was happy with.  Then a new order came and I saw the possibilites.  

The flowers and vase are from Simon Hurley/Spellbinders called Floral Stems and Ceramic Vases respectively.  I cut the mum from two shades of red and one of the six vases from aqua.  The background is Crystal Wall from Altenew and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. 

I'm also sending my card to Beautiful Blooms (see their beautiful moodboard below) and NBUS where we can all post our Never Before Used Stuff .

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you week is going well.
