Global Design Project #GDP025 - Colour Challenge!

Hello, welcome back to my blog! Today I made a card while the kids were outside playing - this was such a quick and easy card to make too! I followed the colour challenge set by Global Design Project. I love this colour combo: Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey and Smoky Slate!

Here is my card.

To make the diagonal pattern, I used a stamp called "Stamp A Bag" from the Annual Catalogue. Its an awesome stamp set! I didn't really want to use Basic Grey for the background as I thought it might be too dark, so instead I used the Smoky Slate and stamped twice without reinking. This gave a lovely contrast. I also did that to my Daffodil Delight stamp too.

For my sentiment I used a Sale-a-bration freebie, but you could certainly swap that for any greeting! This card is such a versatile card and can be used for any occassion. I decided on Happy Birthday and stamped it twice - once in Daffodil Delight and then I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up a shadow and then stamped in Smoky Slate. I love that effect!

I finished off my card with some Daffodil Delight candy dots.
