Friday Flashback: Upsy Daisy

Happy Friday, peeps!  Are you ready for a Friday Flashback?  This time it's a short one; the stamp set today is Upsy Daisy and while it's super cute, somehow I only have one card in the archives.  Not sure how that happened.

Also features Heard from the Heart

The flower silhouette image is the only image in the set; it also has three sentiments.  So yep, that's the Flashback card, and here's today's brand new creation:

I stamped the image with Mint Macaron ink, then sponged the panel, and then stamped the image again with Versamark and heat embossed to give it a little extra interest.  I didn't get the second image lined up perfectly though, you can see it if you look especially on the right side, but I kinda like the effect so I'm okay with that.  I kept thinking I should add some pearls or some paper piecing, but I couldn't figure out where or how to do that so I left it as-is.

I flipped this week's Freshly Made Sketch 90 degrees for my card:

I also extended the strip in the background so it went to the edges of the card front, that was just to hide the edge of the background stamp since I didn't get it completely straight.

I also used this week's Pals Paper Arts color challenge:

This challenge was interesting to me, but I'm not sure how much I like Mint Macaron and Pool Party together.  Seems to me they're a little bit too close in color for my tastes but hey, I gave it a shot.

Hope you enjoy your Friday afternoon!

Hey, I DO like that 2nd card, but the first one is my fave of the two. It probably is the color combo.

Hope you are having a good afternoon. Anything going for this weekend?

Such a clever throw back post! I love the new version. The colors are soft and the clear embossing of the flowers make them dance off the card. This could be a beautiful sympathy card as well. Thanks for playing with the Pals this week.
