Here's my first card of the week with the colors from yesterday's color challenge. I really like how 'Spring-y' the colors are :) The second picture above shows a little of the depth behind the phrase where I used the Stampin' Dimensionals. The background was created by using markers directly onto the stamp; Certainly Celery vines, Real Red flowers and So Saffron flower centers. I stamped it randomly all over the front, then I cleaned off my stamp and inked it up with Bashful Blue, stamped it off once and then continued to stamp all over the background again. The ribbon got a little lost so I wrapped it around the card twice to make it stand out a little better.
The stamp set used is one that we were given at Leadership in January. It's called Elements of Style and it'll be available for purchase beginning May 1st. I really love it. The phrase is a little hard to read in this picture, but it says "Life is a matter of moments". Sweet, eh?
