Sunny Summer

Hi Friends

I've entitled this card 'sunny summer' because these are really summer-y colors.  This card is for the Color Throwdown which is to use the colors of Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Pumpkin Pie.  The first thought that popped into my mind were of popsicles... but, if you go look at the challenge site (click above) you'll see that Joan Ervin had the same idea (*smile*).   Also, my friend is borrowing my 'kinda eclectic' set for a few weeks, so I decided to work something up using that set.  

Here's what I came up with...

I love this "kinda eclectic" set... it's so versatile.  This time I paired it up with Petite Petals and the matching punch.  This was such a fun, quick and easy card to put together.  I cheated a little and used my pistachio pudding (second generation) for the leaves.  I also decided I didn't like seeing white around the edges of my petals so I used my dauber to give them some depth (and take off the white edge).  That was about all there was to it... I also added a piece of daffodil grosgrain ribbon above the sentiment.  Oh, yes, one more thing... I added some small and medium pearls to the flower centers... a little sparkle is a good thing.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed this card ... it sure is 'sunny'.

Thanks for dropping by
