Hugs - MFT Challenge Card

I ordered my very first My Favorite Things stamps and dies last month.  I'm pretty excited about it to say the least.  I had a teeny tiny bit of time this morning, so I decided to pull them out and make a card.  We've been at my parents house the last week watching their dog while they are out of town, and luckily I grabbed my MFT package when we were leaving.  I used MFT's Sketch 315 Challenge and MFT Color Challenge 61 for inspiration.
I didn't actually intend to combine the two, but I couldn't get the colors out of my head, so I went with it. :) It could be because these are pretty much my favorite colors.  If that blue was a little more aqua/mint it would be spot on.  These colors are in my daughter's room, my wardrobe, and are super similar to the ones I chose about 9 months ago to be the theme for my upcoming kit for The 12 Kits of Occasions.
I used MFT's Bold Blooms, Stitched Traditional Tags, and Big Hugs Die to create a very clean and simple card, but it still makes me happy.  And even though it has florals on it, I think I could get away with it being a masculine card...well, at least for my husband anyway...so that makes me happy, too.   And it wasn't until I pulled up the challenge blog to link up that I realized one of the DT members had created a similar card...oops!  I honestly don't even remember seeing it, and since I am literally minutes from the challenge close, I don't have time to redo it.  Hope you've had a wonderful start to your week!
