Love me a 'Thistle'

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for
I'm Hosting our Colour Challenge
and chose those that would show off my favourite flower.
I did make a mistake with my choice - should have been
black instead of  navy but I did add touches of navy
to replicate the 'blue bells' of Scotland to go with
the 'flower of Scotland' The Thistle.

I knew when I saw the Cosy Cup Coaster Die 
I wanted to use them for this challenge.
Thanks so much to my JUGS Teammate Angie
and another crafty friend who so generously 
sent me a nice supply.
Background has been embossed, adding 
several coloured coasters and topped with 
my thistle and blue bells coloured
 with Lindy's Magicals.
I know they aren't really blue bells...
The Thistle word is cut from a 
very old cuttlebug alphabet set.
Finished with several die cut bows,
a lavender mat onto white card base.
I so enjoyed making this one.
Hope you get a chance to play along with us this week. 
You could be our Chic of the Week
and in the running for a Guest Spot in the New Year.
Don't forget to see how our Current Guest Joyce 
and the Team chose to use these colours.
Thanks for stopping by.

I love this so much. Soon's I saw that thistle I knew it was you. I love this color combo, and I really love that little coaster die and how you layered it. This card is stunner, and so nostalgic for you, I'm sure. It's lovely!!!

Of course I love this one, Ina! Such a pretty color combo, perfect for the thistle and bluebells! That little coaster die cut is the cutest thing too!
