A Flower here and a Flower there

A couple cards to share and each of them include a flower. 
 First off, I used the color combination at Colour Q.  It was so much fun to find ways to put these colors together.
 When I saw that great yellow, I knew I wanted to emboss it with a honeycomb embossing pattern.  That also makes this fit the Cas-ual Friday challenge.  This close-up photo doesn't show off the yellow all that well but you get the idea.  The red label and the blue border were pieces that were just sitting on my desk, rejected from some previous projects.
 Here is the yummy Colour Q combo.
Here is the link to the Cas-ual Fridays challenge.
 Next up, I used the retro sketch for this week.
 The little banner pieces, the flower and the label are all stickers by Echo Park.
 Here is the retro sketch I used.
And for a few photos...
 We recently went away for a couple days to celebrate our anniversary.  One of our stops is the pier at Avila Beach.  We were watching the birds and the seals and noticed "us" in shadow form in the water below.
 Look at the notice on the dock, "Work Dock"! Is that hilarious as these guys are doing any but working!!!
 There is a hierachy wherever these guys end up napping. A fight gets started when one seal tries to intrude on another seals "space".  Lots of load barking.
 We saw lots of these guys...
And these guys, they are always hanging around waiting for a fisherman to drop any scraps!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
