SDC181: Citrus Colors

Sue Davies is our hostess this week over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge and she's got us thinking fruit:

"Ever since I was small I've loved the color yellow and the rest of the citrus colors.  They are just so fresh and always make me feel happy.  So, this week I want you to use citrus colors and spread the happiness!"

I created all weekend in between running errands and kids around-but had so much fun and this was probably one of my most favorite cards I created as the colors are a lot brighter than I'm used to doing.

I stamped  Baby Fleur 1 twice on my rustic white paper and then colored both of the sunflower heads.  I cut around one and popped it up using dimensionals.  I colored her little bathing suit with  my copic markers and then used my white signo gel pen to put polka dots on her bathing suit.

I wanted to add a few things to the card but decided not to add a sentiment but leave it blank at this time.  I cut some circles in various sizes and then added a candy dot to the center of them.

Hope you will jump over at join us with your citrus creation at Stampotique Designer's Challenge this week and your chance to win one of two $30 gift certificates for Stampotique stamps.
