Sending Happy Wishes

For this card I combined 2 challenges....the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the Creative Confetti Challenge from Power Poppy.

The Creative Confetti challenge asks us to split our card canvas between 2 colors or go dark to light. Hopefully the way I interpreted it still works....I took the poppy from the Power Poppy Poppy XL set and stamped it on Neenah Solar White and then I also stamped it on Cherry Cobbler with Versamark and heat embossed it in white. I used my Scan N Cut to cut out the flowers and then cut them in half across the middle and then  I colored the portion on the white card stock in with my copics.

I created my card base with Crumb Cake and then did a layer of Cherry Cobbler DSP, rounding the edges at the bottom of the card. My strip across the middle is retired Crumb Cake DSP and for the heart in the sketch I used the flower, putting the white colored section on top and the embossed Cherry Cobbler section on the bottom. I wanted a sentiment on the front so I created a banner to go across the middle of the flower, which was also the perfect way to separate the light and dark portions of the flower.

Thanks for stopping by!
