Betsy's Blossoms Hello Card

This morning I had no intentions of making a card today, but then I found a color challenge that changed my mind. The challenge comes from Sunday Stamps and the colors are: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Black. When I paused to think about this challenge, I realized I'd never made a card with just these colors before. The design for this Betsy's Blossoms Hello Card is fairly basic, it's the details that add interest. Twine, rhinestones, and the cute little bird help to liven things up on this card. Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!

My card is entered into the following challenges:
  1. Sunday Stamps: Color Challenge
  2. Sentimental Sundays: Flowers, Flowers and more Flowers + Sentiment
  3. Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
  4. Addicted to Stamps and More!: Use Physical Stamp
Betsy's Blossoms Hello Card Supplies*:
  • Paper: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Black card stock.
  • Stamps: Betsy's Blossoms, Betsy's Blooms stampin' wheel, and Lacy & Lovely (Hello sentiment).
  • Inks: Classic stampin' pads in Daffodil Delight and Basic Black.
