Now What Challenge Was This For?


I made this card last week for two challenges and now I can't remember where the challenges were, oops! The day after I made this I got called in for jury duty and got put on a trial so I didn't get around to uploading it. I'm home today since it is a holiday but the trial should last until Friday.
To make this card I started off with glossy paper and sponged it yellow in the center then butterscotch, lettuce and then meadow around the edges. The flowers are stamped with black brilliance and colored in with yellow and green markers. The corners are punched with a ticket punch, layered onto black paper with white circle stickers put in the corners. A scalloped circle was punched from black paper and a white gel pen was used for the dots. Hello is stamped on a white circle with black Brilliance.
Recipe
Stamps- flowers by Stampendous, hello by Hero Arts
Ink- black Brilliance, Adirondack inks in yellow, butterscotch, lettuce and meadow
Plus- punches by SU
