Enjoy Your Special Day


I liked the combination of colors for the Color My Heart Color Dare #131, so I decided to make another generic card "Enjoy Your Special Day" and enter it as a second card for this challenge.    Challenge Colors:  Daisy White, Sunset, Honey, Olive and Outdoor Denim.  The background drop is what they call a Smack Down procedure and I used Honey and Sunset Inks.  I used the flower from CTMH Stamp Set D1602 "A Budding Friendship-Seasons and Nature" and did the smack down procedure on each corner of the daisy white cardstock.  YouTube has several tutorials on this procedure and you put your own spin on it.  The same stamp set was used for the two flowers (Sunset and Honey), leaves and stem (olive) and then fussy-cut and raised them with 3D thin foam tape.  In the center of each flower added an olive daily embellishment from my sewing ribbons and an olive gem in the middle and scattered a few of the small flowers on the card.  The background behind the smack down is outdoor denim cardstock.

What a cheerful card! Smack down gives such nice results and texture and you're creating your own designer paper.
