Sunday Sunshine

Double sunshine today... it's bright and clear outside, and inside I have a bright, spring-like card... 

I used the current challenge from Freshly Made Sketches to design my clean and simple daffodil thank you card. One of the ways I kept it simple is no masking! Most of the places where the leaves overlapped I hid with the sentiment banner. Because the two stems are all one colour, it's not really a problem where they cross, and the darker colour of the stem also works to look like it's in front of the leaf. If that makes any sense. :D I used a die to add perforations to the left side of the main panel mostly on a whim, but love how I can pick up the darkest yellow of the gingham paper through them. 
This is also one more card for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes challenge! 

Supplies: white cardstock, Recollections gingham patterned paper, Sunny Studio Stamps Daffodil Dreams & (?) thank you stamps, Versamark, Memento dandelion, cantaloupe, pear tart & bamboo leaves inks, Ranger clear embossing powder, Winnie & Walter Katharine dies, Creative Memories corner-rounding punch, foam tape

Pin It Now!
