I was inspired by the flowers in the photo and thought they would look great as my "Circles" in the sketch. I also happened to have these daisy cut outs on my desk from another project that I had changed my mind on so that was also a great bonus for me in putting this card together rather quickly. Doesn't this DSP paper work perfectly for the colors in the colourq challenge? I used a mix of retired and current SU products for this card - it feels good to use up some of my stash and still use something new too.
In typical fashion for how my life has been going lately, I am entering both of these challenges at the ninth-hour so will be quick with my post today :o) The gals at the ATS challenge are also looking for a guest designer so I am happily submitting my name and crossing my fingers that I might be chosen. They do a wonderful job with this fun and growing challenge each week. Please pop over there and see the DT samples for this week's sketch if you get a chance - they are wonderful.
Supplies (all from Stampin Up!): Cardstock - Whisper White, Pool Party and Barely Banana (retired). DSP - Domestic Godess (retired). Daisies are from the Flower - Daisies #2 Sizzix Die (retired) the flower middles are Chocolate Chip cardstock which was first textured with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder (one of my favs) and then punched with the 1/2" and 1" circle punches. The sentiment is from a NEW hostess set out of the Holiday Mini catalog called Mixed Medley. I stamped it with Chocolate Chip ink and then punched it out with my 3/4" circle punch. I edged each of the daisies with some Chocolate Chip ink. The Pool Party strip is textured with the new Delicate Designs folder. The ribbon is the 1/2" scalloped dots ribbon in chocolate chip. The Calypso Coral brads are from the 3/8" Designer Printed Brads collection.
