I have a sick child and sick dog at home this week, so I feel I have to super multi-task. I made this card for three different challenges - the Mojo Monday Sketch challenge, Splitcoast color challenge and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge. The only challenge that came easily was the Flourishes challenge to use ribbon on your card - the other two were tricky. The colors to use were Kraft, Summer Sun and Riding Hood Red and this was the sketch:
I used the Flourishes set Signs of Spring and I hope that it's not too obvious in the photo, but I elongated the stem of the daffodil because it looked awkward ending higher up on the card.
The kraft c/stock behind the flower was embossed with the Cuttlebug folder Birds & Swirls using my Big Shot. A really good resource for the embossing folders is All That Scraps - I get all of mine there and they have Shimmerz too!
Talking of Shimmerz, new colors are coming and a great new product. Stay tuned.....
Enjoy your day!
