Summer of Color Week 2

The colors for this week’s “Summer of Color” challenge are 1 pink + 1 pink + 1 orange. Some years ago, pink was was one of my favorite colors but I never liked orange. Just lately I find myself using bits of orange here and there. For the challenge, I made a summery mixed-media card with a machine embroidered flower.

Be still my heart. You put my sewing to shame with your truly adorable flower and rick rack over the German text. I'm really in LOVE with your art.

So very pretty! I went through a "pink phase" too. The pink was mostly gone...and then came a little girl to our family. Now the pink is back here and there.
The orange comes out in the fall...with pumpkins :)
