{MTSC86 & CTD104} Hello Friend!


Double or nothing today!  I've combined Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge layout with the Color Throwdown Color Challenge and this is what transpired...



These are the oh so pretty Color Throwdown colors for this week...

and here is Mercy's super sketch
that I'll be using again and again ... 



This cute little "hello" daisy is from a clear stamp set by Stampendous ~ an Archiver's exclusive set called April Shower Flowers.  I stamped it first on the whisper white cardstock and then again on the colored cardstock so I could cut it out and layer it.  The flower and the little tag are popped up on dimensionals.  The designer paper is an oldie ~ Haiku ~ from my Stampin' Up! stash that just happened to have the perfect CTD colors!   Gotta love it when that happens!  ♥   It's not very noticable in the photo, but I used the polka dot texture plate on the daffodil delight strip behind the image.  The buttons and tag are tied on with linen thread.
