Color Throwdown #453

The generic colors for this week are a raspberry pink, green, and yellow.  I chose Berry Burst, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight, and went to one of my current fav stamp/punch bundle using the Daisy Delight set.

I had made my own background paper and colored daisy using this bundle for another challenge in different colors.  For this challenge, I wanted to keep it cleaner, even though the background is stamped, so I didn’t add an extra punched daisy.

Here’s my card:

#CTD453

I actually created a 5.5 x 8.5 sheet of this paper so I can make another card later.  I used the daisy stamp and alternated stamping off daisies for both layers to give the card a bit of dimension.  I used the leaf two-step stamps fromthe same set by stamping off the background and then using the detailed stamp full strength, again for dimension.  The center of each daisy is Daffodil Delight, as is the ribbon.  The greeting is from Beautiful Branches, stamped and punched with the Pretty Label punch, which was then mounted on Stitched Shape circle and attached to the card with dimensionals.  When I kept staring at the card thinking that something was off,  I realized I needed color on the right hand side by the label instead of all that white space.  I grabbed my Old Olive enamel shapes, which balanced the card to my satisfaction.

I am still struggling with bows right now, but at least I managed to get a little one for this card.  I like this card a lot because, while it has a lot on it, there is still a calming feel to it.

Here’s the challenge sketch:

 Colors just scream summertime, don’t they?

Have a Peachy day!
