Make It Monday on Tuesday!

I've noticed several of my blogging buddies sometimes play along with the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenges and I decided to give the current Challenge #168: Baby Wipe Stamping a try:


I used the PTI Delightful Dahlia Additions set with matching dies along with some Stampin' Up reinkers (real red, pumpkin pie and summer sun for the flowers and glorious green and green galore for the leaves).  Lovin' the tie dye effect!  Decided to try making a "nest" of gold elastic cord behind my focal point as I've seen so many others do (after all, this is Robin's Stamping Nest!)
Other Supplies Used:  Papertrey ink white cs and sentiment, Echo Park dotty pp, Stampin' Up banner die cut, gold stars, gold elastic cord and real red ink, Spellbinder square die, button from stash

Thought I'd share a pic of what inspired me to use this particular color combination on my card:



I've had this grouping of flower pots forever and this year I decided to spray paint them bright yellow and fill them up with red, orange and yellow flowers - so cheery!  They make me smile every time I sit out on our patio:)

I'm also popping this into the current Seize the Sketch challenge :


I hope your week is shaping up to be a good one!  Thanks for all the feedback!
