Yellow and Gray Botanical Card

Botanical BloomsToday I have a Botanical card that is inspired by this week’s Global Design Challenge which is a color challenge.  I happen to love the combination of Yellow and Gray.  So I went through my stash of Stampin’ Up! Designer papers to see which Colour Challengepatterns had Daffodil Delight.  I found this  Watercolor Wonder Designer paper from Spring a few year’s ago.

So the details on this card.  The card base is Basic Gray with a layer of Daffodil Delight cut to 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.  I cut the designer paper to 5″ x 3 3/4″. 

Next is a Lace Doily that has been cut in half.  I lined the doily up with the edge of the Watercolor Wonder Designer papergdp025-cuThe flowers are cut from Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral cardstock.  The Daffodil flower has been sponged with Calypso Coral Ink to add a little depth to the flower.  I cut a flower center from Dazzling Details Glimmer paper and sponged that with a little calypso coral ink as well.  The I added a Rhinestone Jewel to the center of the flower for that little extra bling!

The fern leaves are cut from Old Olive cardstock.  The Birthday Banner is stamped using the Perfect Pairings Sale-a-bration stamp set on a 1 1/2″ x 3″ piece of Dafflodil Delight cardstock.  The Happy Birthday is stamped with Basic Gray ink.

These are the supplies that I used for this card:
