Colorful Quint-Essential

Hi all.  Thanks for stopping by.  My card today is, what else, based on a challenge:  The Paper Players Challenge #101.  It's another card we made at my recent stamp class - clean and simple.

For the card base I chose Daffodil Delight card stock.  I added a layer of Whisper White card stock that was run through the Big Shot with the Argyle embossing folder.  A piece of International Bazaar designer paper was added to Daffodil Delight card stock and attached to the card.  It's hard to see, but a sentiment from the Bring On the Cake stamp set was stamped in Basic Black ink on a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock.  It was matted with Daffodil Delight card stock and added to the card.  The Quint-Essential Flower stamp was stamped three times on Whisper White card stock:  once with Rich Razzleberry ink, once with Daffodil Delight ink and once heat embossed with VersaMark and Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  The Rich Razzleberry flower was punched out with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch; the Tangerine Tango was punched out with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch; the Daffodil Delight one was punched out with the 1" Circle Punch.  A Rich Razzleberry brad was added to the center of the small circle.  I attached the Rich Razzleberry flower to a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock that was punched out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and used dimensionals to attach it to the card.  I then layered the Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight pieces using dimensionals.  A truly easy card to make but definitely colorful.  Have a fun day.  Find a little time to be creative today.
