Daffodil Day

Hey there! How's it going? I'm having a great week & I hope you are too. I made this card for two challenges~ my favorite combo- a sketch and a color challenge! The sketch is from Clean & Simple's FTL180 & the color challenge is from CR84FN49 challenge to use gray, craft & yellow.


























For my image, I used SU! "Just Believe" stamp inked in Basic Gray on Daffodil Delight cardstock. I outlined the image using a crushed curry marker. The large dots gray panel was made with a new purchase of the Quickutz Polka Dots embossing folder that I'd been seeing out there in Blogland. Love it! The DP, ribbons and button is all SU!'s Daffodil Delight. And to think I almost didn't purchase this Daffodil cardstock when it first came out because I don't consider yellow a favorite color. So why then would I have buttons, DP, several spools of ribbon?

Hugs,

Marilyn
