Yellow Poinsettia?!

I've fallen behind with the MFT challenges, so decided before bed to get a card done combining the MFT sketch (about to close) & the new MFT color combo. Yellow & orange are 2 of my least used colors, so I was at a bit of a loss.  I do love the MFT poinsettia die & half the fun of making cards is using whatever colors you want, right?! The MFT Dizzy Doily was cut from a scrap of blue cardstock & I do think it's a pretty background for the yellow felt flower.  The sentiment is from my first MFT stamp set--Spring. Looks like I didn't match some of the colors very well, so may have to try again. I'm also entering at Pixies Snippets Playground & SSS Wednesday
Fritz & I walk to the end of our dead end street several times a day & it's been so fun to watch our neighbor's row of trees go from bare branches to beautiful pink blooms!  

Thanks for stopping by.

  9. A lovely card with the yellow poinsettia! Wonderful embossed back ground that gives awesome texture! And, thank you for sharing a photo of those gorgeous trees! As, Lisa said...no blooms of anything here as of yet. I'm afraid it'll be a few weeks until we see any blooming!:-)
