Daffodil Delight

This week, Our Creative Corner host, Silke Ledlow, has come up with a tough challenge, at least it proved to be tough for me. It's a color challenge - yellow, pink, green and brown.

I thought it was going to be a piece of cake, but NO!!! I could not find any DP that I liked with the right colors and I didn't really want to use plain colored card stock. So I spent literally hours looking through my stash, through all my digital paper files, surfing the digital scrapbooking sites trying to find the right papers to use. This is the outcome. I'm not crazy about it, but it will have to do as I have already spent waaaaaay to much time on this sample. My brown is Soft Suede and the solid pink is Pink Pirouette. I clear embossed a filigree around the pink CS for texture. The DPs are all digital, printed on my home printer. I really like the convenience of being able to shop for paper on the internet and getting an instant download.

The daffodil image is a digi from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, an artist I just discovered yesterday. She has some great digi's and is having a 30% off sale through March 14th. Plus she has some freebies on her site. The images were colored with Copics. The sentiment is Whimsical Words from SU's recent Sale-a-Bration.

Let me know if you have any questions. I am always happy to share. Please do stop on over to Our Creative Corner to see the lovely samples for this challenge. Our host, Silke, has a great prize this week. It's a Mystery Package - how fun is that?

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
