Grow Where You're Planted

Hi everyone! :) I made a card with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week. The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this sketch was the Yin-Yang symbol! It's a totally different sketch by Jennifer Brum. Anyways, my idea was to try some soft colors for the card. Thus, I used a lovely color combination from Color Throwdown challenge this week : Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Pretty In Pink and Cool Caribbean. This is the first time I'm entering a color challenge. Do check out their fabulous creations!

I bought some cute tag paper pads from Michaels recently and I picked a lighter color tag to stamp on the sentiment. I love the sentiment "Grow where you're planted" and decided to use it for this card.  I embossed the flowers, leaves and the sentiment with clear embossing powder. I couldn't resist doing some faux stitching around the images as well as the tag! I finished off the card with a thread around the pink patterned paper and tied a little bow. That's all!

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by!
