Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! We are enjoying fantastic weather here in NC... in fact it's down right hot! We are doing some yard work so I'm sure tonight I'll be moaning with pain, but it's so good to have this great weather to get things done!
Today's card was actually made last night. I made this for the Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge. Linda instructed us to use Barely Banana, Baja Breeze and Green Galore, with white as an optional neutral. I guess I'm funny but I love the yellow and blue together... and I love the yellow and green together, but working in the bold bright green with the other two wasn't that easy for me. I was tempted to just color my leaves with the green... but in the spirit of a true challenge, a did use one matting layer in Green Galore, and I sponged my sentiment panel with it... so a pat on the back for using a color I'm not fond of! LOL!
Anyway... here is what I did: I used two Clear Dollar Sets. My flowers are the "April Flower of the Month" set, and my sentiment is from "In God's Hands".
In case you can't read it, it says" When we put our cares in His hands, He puts His peace in our hearts". Isn't that a GREAT sentiment... and so true! I love the wonderful Scriptures and verses that CDS have... I have several sets but most of my sets are just sentiments so these challenges are sometimes difficult. This time, the Daisies were a no brainer for me! I stamped them onto Georgia Pacific White, colored them with Prisma Pencils and blended with blending stumps and Odor Free Mineral Spirits. I then cut them out leaving just a tad around the outline, and colored that with my Copic Marker B10.
My layers are: a base of Baja Breeze, yellow gingham from Making Memories, the QuiKutz label with one mat of Baja Breeze and One of Green Galore, and the sentiment on GPW. I added a small layer of GPW which I had punched with my Martha Stewart edge punch and slipped that behind a SU! Baja Breeze ribbon. I also tied a little white ribbon around my daisy bouquet.
It's a simple layout today, but fresh and springlike... and I like how it came out. Hope you do too!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! God bless your day!
