Playing with Pals

Greetings fellow earthlings!  Remember Marvin the Martian on Bugs Bunny?  One of my favourite toon characters!

I especially love his voice.  Check him out here.
Not sure how I got onto this thread, but let's get off  - quick!

 I decided to play along with the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #138 (because I was a PPA Pick for their last challenge!! Woohoo!)  It is a colour challenge with some really contrasting hues: 

Since I had a Happy Retirement card to make for a former colleague of mine, I put the two together to come up with this:

I'm just loving Everything Eleanor!  It has so many beautiful components - the label, the flourish and the gorgeous flowers!  And I tried the new Large Scallop Edgelit on the Early Espresso bottom panel.  I sponged the flowers and the label with Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight and I used a video tutorial from Anne Schach to tie the double bow out of Daffodil delight.  (Hmmm - should have worked with it a bit more to expand the loops.)  Too late, now - I've given it away!

Lots of Pearl Basic Jewels finish off the look! 

Have a great weekend!
