#121 HSS Color Challenge

Happy Tuesday and Welcome to another Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge!!
This week we have a Color Challenge!!!!

Stamp set- My Friend
Card stock- basic gray, vanilla, basic black, first edition specialty
Ink- basic gray, craft black, daffodil delight
Big shot- brayered embossing folder- vintage wallpaper- basic gray
Punches- dotted scallop ribbon border, heart punch on banner
Accents- paper piercer, daffodil delight brads, daffodil delight seam binding

I decided to use the daffodil delight to give my card a POP of color!!! 
I stamped my image with basic gray stamped off twice and used the stamp a ma jig to stamp
with craft black to give a Shadow effect!!! 
I brayered my embossing folder with basic gray to add just a touch of color!!!
I used stampin dimensionals to pop up the image off the vanilla mat!!! 
Erin showed us last week how to use the heart punch to make a banner so had
to give it a try on my banner this week!!!

Go check out the Great Color Inspiration from the Design Team and then
come and play along with us!!!  Can't wait to see your color inspiration!!!

Happy Stamping, Diane

Beautiful card! Your yellow seems so much brighter, maybe it's the pretty bow front and center. I love how you shadowed that stamp, I've always liked that set. Lovely work! Erika
