Divas By Design - "Anything Goes"

Happy Friday Friends!  Right now I am living in the sunshine but  it looks like that might change as there are some big black clouds brewing to the west and we are supposed to get some hefty afternoon showers.  That's been happening quite a lot lately here - sunny in the mornings and raining in the afternoon and evenings - good for the lawn and trees, bad for me and the weeds I have to pull - LOL.  Ok... so enough of the weather report and on to the card you are seeing above.  I was messing around with this card last week for a color challenge and but didn't get it finished.  This morning I saw that the theme this week at Divas By Design Challenge #44 is "Anything Goes" so I thought I'd finish it up and share it with you as I enter this challenge. 

I stamped the flower image on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock using More Mustard ink for the darker effect, then I put it in my Blossom punch.  I ran the leaves through a textured embossing folder after I punched them out.  The sentiment is layered with two offsetting ovals with some some brown pearls for added emphasis.   Hope you enjoyed today's card and that there is some sunshine where you live to enjoy!  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit - I'm sure glad that you did! Hugs!

Supplies (all from Stampin Up except as noted):  Cardstock - Early Espresso, More Mustard, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz.  DSP - Spice Cake (retired).  Stampes - With Love and Care; flowers (retired hostess set) and Pursuit of Happiness sentiment.  Textured Embossing folders - Manhattan Flowers (leaves) and Square Lattice.  Punches - Blossom (flowers) and Blossoms Petal Builder (leaves).
