Color Throwdown #132

Happy Saturday!  I've had a great day so far!  Just got back from meeting my stamping friends and we had a terrific time! I will post pictures as soon as I get them (from the only person who remembered to bring a camera...LOL)! A big shout out to Betty at the Stamping and Scrapbooking Room in Greensboro, NC.   Betty is awesome and she always takes great care of us when we visit!  Her store is fabulous and lucky for us, is centrally located about an hour or so from all of us.  If you are ever in central NC, you won't want to miss a visit to Betty's!

Anyway, I wanted to post the card I made for this week's Color Throwdown #132.  Here are the colors Broni had us work with this week:
I used the sketch from this week's Sketch Challenge (STVSKSP16) on StampTV for my layout.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I started with a base card of SU Baja Breeze and layered with GKD Wild Dandelion.  The patterned paper is from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop pad.  I stamped the daffodils from the GKD set, Sending Sunshine (by Theresa Momber) with Memento Tuxedo Black onto GKD Layering Weight White and colored with Copic Markers.  I cut out and popped up the image over mats cut with Spellbinders Petite Oval Nestabilities.  The base image panel was sponged with Soft Sky for the cloudy sky and Memento Tuscan Tan for the ground.  The Easter sentiment is from the the GKD set, Spring Florals.   A Soft Sky bow finished it.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
