Have you got the Winter Blues?

Whether you get the Winter Blues or not, I have some blues to share...

I found this wonderful picture to start me thinking about Cheery Lynn Designs current challenge which is

I then found this gorgeous picture as my inspiration...

If that was not inspiration enough, I came across this quote by Vincent van Gogh that ties it all together, "There is no blue without yellow and without orange."

Aww..so perfect! 
 I wanted to show you my background without anything on it.
I used both the Wittle Wickers and Wittle Weavers to create this. 
 After I built my base, I used the Rectangle Card Stackers to cut it to the size I wanted.

Here is the finished card with the flowers handmade with the new Large Rose die.

I hand dyes coffee filters and then cut these out.  They are a combo of oranges and yellows, although you can't tell in this picture.

I used many layers so they are soft and puffy.  I was trying to make my roses look more like my favorite flowers, ranunculuses.

I hope I have given you some eye candy and a push to join our challenge.
