ColorLab34

Thursday means another ColorLab challenge! Get your Lab coat and play along with us!! 

Colors this week:


Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White


When Julie sent the colors, she said it was inspired by a sunflower. Guess where my ideas went?? and stayed??  Love Sunflowers!!! Bet you didn't know that huh??  Tee he he. 

Let me apologize for the wonky scan too. It looks much more straight in real life. Not sure what happened to the scan.

Anyway, to the card! Card base is Chocolate Chip with a Daffodil Delight layer behind Naturals White. I used that instead of Whisper White. The White was textured with the Finial Press embossing folder in the Big Shot, but with a craft frame with a rectangle in the center to leave the center unembossed. In that center I stamped the stem from Because I care in Pear Pizzazz near the bottom. Next I cut some Daisies with the Big Shot. I used two of the medium and small. I sponged one layer of each size with Daffodil Delight, and the other lightly with Chocolate Chip. I also cured the medium ones slightly for a little extra depth. They are attached together and accented with a Chocolate Chip Jumbo Brad. The whole element is attached with Dimensionals. On the background, I lightly sponged Pear Pizzazz over the texture, and sponged Chocolate Chip around the edge. Pear Pizzazz ribbon is across the bottom with the 'thank you' oval attached over with Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!! Starting Saturday I will be sharing cards from my Open Houses last weekend! Hope you can make it back :)

That is so cute, mixing the stamp and the Daisy. I love it and will have to try that myself. And the texture really helps to frame it.
