Color Challenge....Because I Care



Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made with the color challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers.

This color combo is so pretty, pear pizzazz, regal rose and so saffron. They are so springy!!! So I decided to make some daffodils, I saw this on some one's blog recently and now I can't find it, if you know let me know so I can give them credit and a link. The flowers are made from the Stampin' Up Growing Green stamp set. I stamped the flower onto some very vanilla card stock and colored in with so saffron and daffodil delight ink. The centers are 1/2 inch circles of so saffron and the are crumpled and pleated and then added to the center with a bit of mono glue.

The leaves behind the daffodils come from the Just Believe stamp set and the sentiment is from the Because I Care Hostess set. I used pear Pizzazz for my base and followed that with some very vanilla and the DS paper is from the Hostess prints pack. I added some regal rose card stock that was embossed with the square lattice and the perfect dots EF. I matted both with very vanilla card stock.

I added some regal rose ribbon and crochet trim ribbon across the middle and some basic pearls for accents in the corners and centers of the flowers.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

It is lovely design, I love the way you worked with the flower centre, it looks so real and alive, I can almost smell the sweet and fresh accent. It reminds everyone that spring is around the corner.
