Color Challenge......{TKJ}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
And this week the challenge is
a Color Challenge
based on this pic....
I found this gorgeous designer paper from American Crafts~ Hip Hip Horray Paper Pad that had not only all the colors from the inspiration picture in the paper, but also had these adorable here is my take on the inspiration. Hope you like it!!!

Since the pattern paper had so much going on, I kept my card pretty simple, by making the die cut flower the focal point of my card. I started my card by using a piece of Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and layering it with some white card stock and the designer paper. Next I made another mat using a smaller piece of Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and matching yellow designer paper from the same paper pack. After stamping her sentiment~ from My Creative Time~ Floral Sentiments,  I put the mat aside to die cut my flower and leaves~ also from My Creative Time~Stitched Daisy Die and Stitched Leaves Die  Once all the pieces of my die cut flower had been cut, layered and assembled on my mat, I added it to my card using some pop dots for added dimension. To finish my card up, I added a decorative stitch to the side of my card and tied a big bow using some White Twill Tape.
So there you have inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
As always I have linked all the supplies I used from The Kraft Outlet throughout my description.  If you have not checked out the store yet....make sure you do! There is so much available, the prices are so reasonable and shipping is super fast!!!
