Paper Players Challenge #103 - Colors from Anne Marie

Hello friends!  The Paper Players Challenge #103 is a color challenge from Anne Marie that calls for some really fun colors - Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade - how fun is that?!? 
I chose to leave lots of white space on my card this week which is very unlike me as I am such a patterned paper fan. My initial thought for these colors was flowers or popsiscles, but then I noticed that the City Crafters Challenge theme was to use doilies on your creation (Note:  I had also planned to enter this card in the City Crafters Challenge #116 - Hello Doily, but missed the deadline by minutes - drat!).  I've had these doily stamps for quite some time and and never used them so this was the perfect opportunity for me to use those poor neglected stamps! I stamped from the lightest to the darkest colors to achieve a nice overlapping of the colors.  I created a faux embossing by using dimension dots to pop the first white layer up just a bit from the card base.  And of course... I just couldn't leave it totally "flat" so I added some brads to the center of each doily. 

This card took me about 5 minutes to make and it turned out very lovely (the picture doesn't show the daffodil delight very well - my apologies). I decided to make this an anniversary card because I remembered that tomorrow is my parents 48th anniversary (and my aunt and uncle's anniversary too).   I think while I still have these stamps and inks out, I'll make a few more cards like this but for different occasions such as Thinking of You, Happy Birthday or Thank You to have on hand.  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit - I sure am glad that you did!  Hope you like today's card too.  Hugs! 

Supplies (all from Stampin Up): Cardstock - Whisper White.  Classic Ink - Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade.  Stamps - Delicate Doilies and Something to Celebrate (retired hostess set).  Brads - In color 2011-2013 and brights.
