Just Believe Sponged Oval

Club was today-yeah!!  Those are always great days, even if I hardly sleep the night before!  That is my own fault of course, can't seem to help but be a procrastinator!!  Here if the first card we did today, pretty much a direct case of the super creative stamper, Mary Brown.  I changed the colors but not too much else!  It was a great hit with my girls!!

Card base is Old Olive with a tight layer of Early Espresso behind Whisper White.  The oval is made by using a frame cut with the Oval Scallop Frame die in the Big Shot and sponging color inside.  The top half is Daffodil Delight, the bottom Old Olive.  Over that we stamped the flower image from Just Believe in  Early Espresso.  The Daffodil Scallop edge that you see on the left side is the Scallop Ribbon border punch, with just the scallop edge showing.  An Old Olive Taffeta ribbon is attached around the bottom.  The saying was inked with markers, all the words but 'believed' are in Old Olive, 'believed' is in Early Espresso.  The wide oval punch is layered on the new Decorative Label punch in Daffodil Delight.  That punch is not available until next month, but they forgave me!  Nothing else works behind that wide oval.  Trust me, I tried all kinds of other options last night and kept coming back to this one!!  Lastly we stamped the smaller flower/leaf image in Daffodil Delight over the words.  Generally I do this by stamping off first once to give it a lighter, not overpowering look, but this one is full strength.  The yellow of the Daffodil Delight is light enough with the Old Olive and Early Espresso that it works.
