Embellish Stitching Color Challenge

Happy Monday!  I finished my first 15K (9.3 miles!) yesterday...in route to my first half marathon on May 2nd.  I say first, but it should be noted that my first could very well be my last!  9.3 miles was a long way...and 13.1 seems really long.  Thankfully the weather held up and it only rained at the very end. I finished in 1 hour 31 minutes - averaging 9 minutes and 56 seconds a mile.  I was very pleased!  My wonderful husband took the boys out to a movie when I got home so that I could take a big long nap...I needed it!  Here's a quick picture of us before the race.

Now onto my card for the Embellish Challenge!

A side view so you can see the dimension of the flowers.
Ingredients:  JilliBean Soup Egg Drop Soup Paper; Bashful Blue and Pretty In Pink SU Paper and Ink; SU Chocolate Chip Ink; SU Certainly Celery Ribbon and Ink; Kaiser Kraft Pearls; PaperTreyInk Beautiful Blossoms II and Beyond Basic Borders Stamps
