Zesty Colour Combo!

Happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone! What beautiful weather it is, much more summery than i was expecting and i guess the weather is totally reflected in the card that i want to share with you today!

I have completely dedicated today for crafting, hubby is at work so i can make as much mess as i want!!! The first thing i did this morning was log on the Cupcake Craft Challenges to see what this weeks challenge is! This week it is 'Zesty Colour Combo' in other words you have to create a card using the following colours: orange, green, yellow and white. So i decided to make the challenge my first crafty make of the day, here you go:

I have created a beautiful tri-fold card. The cardbase is 'Old Olive' and the panels have been made with 'Daffodil Delight' and 'Tangerine Tango' cardstock, some of which has been run through the 'Big Shot' with the 'Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder'.

Here's a close up of the front of the card:

The daisies have been created with the 'Flower Daisies Die' using 'Whisper White', 'Tangerine Tango' and 'Daffodil Delight' card. An 'Old Olive' 'Designer Button' has been placed in the centre to coordinate. the daisy is layered on shape that has been created using the 'Top Note Die' and the 'Big Shot'. You basically keep rotating the card on the die to create the effect. (I will try and post a tutorial on how to create this shape soon - you may need to remind me!) I have also placed some beautiful butterflies created from some scraps of 'Brights DSP' and the 'Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die'. I have placed a few 'Basic Rhinestones' on the butterflies for a bit of bling effect! The ribbon featured is 'Old Olive' 'Grosgrain Ribbon'.

Here's the card in it's open form:

The sentiment featured in this card is from the 'Cheers and Wishes' stampset, which i have punched out using the 'Decorative Label Punch'.

I just love this card!! A lovely bright creation to get me in a summery mood. Let's hope the sunshine continues through halfterm!!
