Color Throwdown #104

Don't you just love these fresh summer colors for the CTD104!! I don't have any daffodil delight yet, so I had to substitute some other yellow card stock for that color.

I thought of flowers and leaves as soon as I saw these colors, so I used a new Technique Tuesday set of floral images for this card. I stamped the flowers on 2 different colors of yellow cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed them with clear detail ep and cut them out. The centers are just punched cardstock adhered with a drop of glue and dotted with glossy accents. The decorative hummingbird is by Inkadinkado, also stamped with VOB ink, embossed with clear detail ep, and colored with Tombows. I cut the image out and popped it up on foam tape.
Thanks for spending part of your day with me and I wish everyone a fabulous evening!
