Hi everyone!! Happy Monday!!
Here is my card for today's challenge at the There She Goes Blog, TSG45, Yellow Spring Flowers!!
Today was just GORGEOUS here in New York...I even got that "Spring is coming" feeling! LOVE that!! This challenge was perfect for my sunny mood!!
For my card, I used the brand new Dance by There She Goes. I LOVE this set! It is SO gorgeous and it is only $7.00! The best part of this set is that $4.00 from the each set will be donated to the Amyloidosis Support Group in loving memory of Jessica's friend Linda Winner.
I used all Basic Grey Origins papers on my card today, and I have to say, I had SO much fun making this!! Often I look at flower sets and automatically think to color the flowers with Copic Markers, but today, I decided to simply stamp the flowers onto the patterned paper, cut them out and sponge the edges for interest. I love how versatile it makes this set!!
I started by stamping the gorgeous quote onto Choice Buttercream in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut it out with Oval Nestabilities. I sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe & Memento Tangelo. I stamped the flowers, as I mentioned above, in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Basic Grey Origins, cut them out and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe.
I added Vintage Brads to the center of each flower, and I added a little pop with some leaves punched with a Martha Stewart punch. These were sponged a bit as well with Memento Bamboo Leaves.
I framed my main panel with Scallop Nestabilities and kept my layout SUPER simple to focus on the gorgeous flowers! I added a double bow and some more Vintage Brads and called it done!!
