ODBD + Sentimental Sundays

Posting a card for two challenges:  ODBD Shining the Light (a sketch) and Sentimental Sundays (a color challenge).   The colors we were asked to use are:  Summer Sun, Handsome Hunter, Poppy Parade & Old Olive.  For me, not a group of colors that I found easy to combine.  I thought using the sketch would make it easier, but to be honest it actually made it harder for me.  Oh well... another case of live and learn.  However, in the end I do think that the card turned out rather nice.

I used one of the daffodil images from the Heartfelt Creations set Daffy Daffodils.  The verse is from the ODBD set I am the Way.  I stamped the daffodil on the white cardstock using PTI's Summer Sunrise ink and then stamped the verse over that using SU!'s Old Olive.  In order to make things not look quite so color-blocked I embossed the white cardstock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and stamped the Poppy Parade strip with CHF backgrounder Climbing Leaves using Versamark ink.    The ribbon is Summer Sunrise, as well.



Thanks for taking a peek....  Finally... I just have to say that I'm still pinching myself over winning the Moxie Fab Grey is the New Black challenge and I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the lovely comments people have been leaving me!  It definitely made my day!

Supplies:  cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Handsome Hunter, Poppy Parade & Old Olive; Ink:  SU! Old Olive, PTI Summer Sunrise, VersaMark; Cuttlebug; Birds & Vines ef; Spellbinders plain oval dies; scalloped square dies; PTI Summer Sunrise grosgrain ribbon; Stamps:  ODBD, Heartfelt Creations & Cornish Hertiage Farms
