Hello and thanks for stopping by!! My card share today features the SU Birthday Blooms Stamp Set.
(UPDATE: The WONDERFUL news about this card is that it was selected as the favorite card for the week of those submitted to Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (see below) last Tuesday).
As alluded to above, I created this card to submit to a Splitcoaststampers (SCS) Color Challenge, CC580 – Daffodil Island Garden. The colors for the challenge are Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, and Garden Green, which are Stampin’ Up! colors. Vicki Dutcher (vdutcher), SCS member, was the wonderful host who selected these colors for the challenge. I love blues and yellows together, so I enjoyed this challenge; it was a great color combination.
Vicki offered “dessert” if leaves were included in participants’ submission. As you can see, they are part of the floral image on my card.
I stamped the floral image in VersaMark, added white embossing powder, and heat set it. I used the ZIG pens to watercolor the floral image, using colors as close as possible to those for the challenge. I got a little heavy-handed with the blue color at first, as this was the first time I’ve used the ZIG pens. After completion, I fussy cut the image and adhered it to a double-stitched Whisper White circle that is framed with a Garden Green double-stitched frame.
I used Daffodil Delight card stock for my card base. I added a piece of designed acetate for the first layer, and it is from an old SU designer series paper (don’t recall the name). Then I used a old and wide piece of blue SU ribbon, stamping on my “Thank You” greeting.
I hope you enjoy the card!
