Stretching my horizons...

Hi! This colour combo from Dynamic Duos DD#85 really caught my eye.

I love the bright colours and that became the starting point of my card here:

Supplies used are hand made paper in white and green and bright yellow card stock. I used the sketch from Retro Sketches rs#97.

I used the current challenge at Technique Time Tuesday - Triple Time Stamping to stamp the leaves with Camlin Drawing Inks in Yellow and Green. Though I followed the excellent video tutorial, I decided to inverse the layers.

The sentiment was stamped on acetate and heat embossed, since the green paper is textured. I finished off with some punched yellow flowers and white half pearls.

Entering this card in the following challenges:

Dynamic Duos #85
Hope my card is accepted, since my rich, golden yellow is looking more orange!

Retro Sketches rs#97
Thanx for the great sketch, guys!
