Feel Goods Daydream

Howdy, folks!  I can't wait to share today's card so let's get to it!


I think this is my favorite thing I've made this month!  I used Daydream Medallions embossed with white EP on Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo cardstock, and the center piece is cut from a piece of Sycamore Street DSP (Sale-a-Bration exclusive!).  I did not come up with that brilliant idea however; I found it on Lynn Weiss's blog and couldn't wait to try it myself!  That design from the patterned paper fits perfectly in the medallion stamp.  I put a Daffodil Delight brad in the center; surprisingly enough, it makes a pretty good match to the Summer Starfruit ribbon.  I think the only way I'd like this card better is if I could magically make the Rich Razzleberry parts on the DSP be Island Indigo instead to match the rest of the card, but I'm still pleased with it as-is. 

The sketch is from Create with Connie and Mary and I'm kind of in love with it:


Click on that link above and look at Mary's card (second one down).  I can't *wait* to get Swallowtail in my hot little hands so I can CASE that card!!!  Wow, I just realized how many exclamation points I've used in this post.  I'm gonna go over my monthly allotment if I'm not careful...

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Very Nice. I really like the choice of colors and how you used the SAB DSP as your color palette. The embossing adds a nice effect. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!

I was so surprised that the center of Floral Frames matched up with Madison Avenue flower and Sycamore Street DSP, too! Love your bright colors and use of those Framelits! Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
