Here is my card for the F4A129 challenge, shades of color (I think I got that right?) Sorry it's crooked against the background. I had to re-take it and/or re-size it, seven times to get it to upload. Once it uploaded I was so relieved, that even though it was more crooked than my usual photos, I couldn't bear to start all over again! :)
I used SU's river rock, soft suede and chocolate chip for my distressed image. The umbrellas were stamped w/SU summer sun, real red and Memories violet. The grass is kiwi kiss and the two different Papertrey Ink flowers, were stamped with the same night of navy and violet. I stamped the umbrella guy on my card, then again and cut out so I could use dimensionals to pop him up.
Stamps: Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous, PTI
Paper: Paper Studio
Ink: SU, Memories (see colors above)
Accessories: SU dimensionals
THANKS for looking! :)

LOL This is so lovely! But I have to admit, the "hello, hello, hello" reminds me of the three stodges! I know this is going way back. That was how they started one of their bits.
Anyway, I LOVE your pretty field!!! Your flowers are gorgeous!!! The gentlemen and their umbrellas have a need distressed look about them, so cool!!! This really is a FANTASTIC card Gabby!!!

These umbrella guys remind me of Charlie Chaplin and the way he walked kinda different! Now that's going WAY WAY back in time-black & white silent movies! Love your sweet lil flower field and your take on today's challenge~
