True Friend

I loved the colors that Kristina Werner chose for her 50th color challenge:

Brown and turquoise are always a great combo and I enjoyed mixing in the red and yellow! I had fun with some two step stamping too, which I usually avoid. Here's my card:

I even used my recently neglected Top Note die with the Big Kick. I'll need to pull that out more often, it has such a finished look! My favorite detail is the button centers for the flowers. The flower image is really only half of the flower and I had to stamp it, spin it and stamp it again to complete a full circle. Needless to say the center looked odd, so I used a sliver of Real Red paper to tie off the buttons and stuck them on with a mini glue dot.
That is really all for tonight....see you tomorrow for an Unscripted Sketch it Saturday!

Smiles,
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, YoYo Yellow, Real Red, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Chocolate Chip
Stamps (SU!): In Full Bloom, That's Nice
Other: Top Note die, Big Kick, buttons (Making Memories), pop dots, mini glue dots, corner rounder

  3. LOVE this. I looked at the flowers and stems and instantly recognized them as "In Full Bloom", one of my faves. But I didn't remember a full daisy flower. How clever of you to use the two halves instead! The flowers look extra special popped off the top note shape and the buttons for centers are a great finishing touch. Good job on using the color combo again.

  4. Love your card! The top notz die is the prefect background and I adore the buttons in the middle of your flower. Great job on the color combo.

    It's a good life!

  5. This card is AMAZING!!! I also love turquoise and brown. I'm going to have to "borrow" this on a card (actual paper card that is) I need to do.
