PPA 211 Color Challenge

A quick and simple card that can be interchanged with just about any other sentiment. What first came to mind for the color combo was a baby boy birthday card. What happened was, I had a daffodil delight flower sitting on my desk and immediately decided to go in a different direction. That has been happening to me a lot lately, having a vision yet ending up with something totally different than what I had originally envisioned.

I keep a storage container full of miscellaneous items such as the leftover daffodil flower that was on my desk. It comes in handy for quick embellishments when needed and sometimes the item I pull actually sets the tone for the card or scrapbook page that I am working on! I kept trying to draw daffodil faux sewing around the banner edge but gave up after three tries. (My yearly eye exam cannot come fast enough!) I ended up opting for the strip of daffodil polka dot designer paper for contrast instead. I am a fan of the thin lined thread.  It adds just the right touch of texture to catch the eye and add depth. How did I live without Stampin’ Up! candy dots?
