I made this card a few days ago using a green that I did not think I would use, but somehow I think it looks neat with the designer papers.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); designer paper (Basic Grey: PB&J)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Hero Arts (Sweet Threads Label; Lauderdale Floral)
Other: Corner rounder

I think those little flowers are such a sweet shape!

The rain eventually let up in the early hours of the morning so off we went to run a 10 Mile Off Road race!  Here are our happy faces before the start:

(Lt to Rt: Juanita, Ronel, my hubby Michael, Nada & me)

And here are our not so happy shoes:

It was an awesome run!  I loved the feeling of being out in a forest, it beats the concrete anyday!

Wishing you all a fabulous day!

Beautiful card, Bren! And it is so nice to see a photo of your smiling face! Looks like you'll be scraping the mud off you shoes for quite awhile - lol! Sending hugs! :)

Pretty card! Love how you highlighted the four flowers as a separation between the pp and the yellow bg.

You guys seem to have had a lot of fun!

Your flower card is GORGEOUS, Brenda! I love the bright and happy colors! And good for you on keeping up with the running! (I must do better: note to myself!!)

Oh this is such a C U T E photo of all of you guys!! Looks like the race was fun!
I'm with you on that green....I still can't decide if I like it or not, and I have a folder full of it! It takes just the right color combo to make it work and you did that perfectly :)
Sending you hugs XXX

Just seen your card on Flickr... it is simply gorgeous. Those flowers really make it pop. Your fun sounds great. I'm enjoying my beach walks - doing 3.6 kms in 40 mins. Not bad for this old body! Your make my walks look quite pedestrian.... you are very inspiring.

running for 10 miles? I am impressed; I am not that sporty. But you're right; nothing beats being outside and enjoy sports!
Your card is lovely; love that border; made me happy the moment I saw it!
