Share Joy Challenge #29

Hello friends!

This week is flying by for me! How about you? I had such grand plans to blog more this week, and sadly, it didn't happen. Its either a feast, or a famine! Today, I am bringing you the latest Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge. I used the lovely color palette for my card, along with a simple daisy stamp, and die cut frame. Check it out.

I started with TE card stock in Blue Corn, Sprinkles, Potato Chip, and Peapod, cutting strips in varying thicknesses, and adhered them to a white card base. I stamped the small daisy outline image (from Oops A Daisy) in Versamark, and white heat embossed it onto the colored strips, making sure to keep my heat tool moving, so I didn't warp it.

I then die cut the large frame from the Frame In Frame die set using white card stock, and popped it up onto the card front. To finish it, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the same stamp set, in black ink.

Here is a look at the sketch, and the color palette. I hope you find one or both inspiring, and give the challenge a try! I have included what you need to know about the challenge, so you can play along! I can't wait to see what you make. Thanks so much for stopping by!
