Wonderful Friend

This is the card I made for the Color Challenge over at Claudia & Company.  It's a pretty simple challenge...use the colors, red, green and yellow.

Well...it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.  I started with my image, the flowers from the "Willow Whimsy" set by Designed2Delight and colored it with markers.  Now you would think finding a piece of patterned paper that I wanted to go with the image would be pretty easy, but NO, it took me forever to finally decide on the strip of "Fly a Kite" collection by October Afternoon.  I backed it with a piece of "Classic Red" cardstock by The Paper Company that had been punched on the bottom edge with the Apron Lace punch by Fiskars and embossed on top with the Polka Dot embossing folder by Provo Craft.  OK...red...check...yellow...check.  Hmm...I need some green and in came the green polka dot ribbon from Michaels.  I corner rounded the bottom edges and then stamped the sentiment.  It's a wonderful stamp set from Paper Trey Ink, Round and Round.  To finish off the card, I added some Glossy Accents to the centers of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by!
