Here is a card I created for today.

Happy by Daniela Dobson

I used some left over scraps that were on my desk and I added Just Hearts 2 Flair to one of the stickers. I used a Branch Die and die cut two branches, one from patterned paper and one from vellum. They are layered one on top of the other.

Feeling better by Daniela Dobson

I used Border Duo 2 to create card my background. I layered three different die cuts to make it look like lace. I used a similar color combination yesterday, except I added a touch of yellow on here. I die cut a feather and two leaf stems that I stamped. Well, actually, I stamped them first and then I aligned the die for die cutting. I tucked a little banner with a sentiment under the flower with some twine.

Feeling better close by Daniela Dobson

That is all from me. Make sure you check out what the rest of our DT created.

I hope you play along.

{ Reverse Confetti April Color Challenge }

Hi and welcome to our April Color Challenge – light blue, green and plum.
Here is my card.

Hello by Daniela Dobson

I only used one stamp set on this card and that is BeBe Bunny. Isn't she cute? I colored her with Prismacolor colored pencils and used 3D foam squares to pop her up on the card. I used plum cardstock as my base and for another touch of plum I added plum jewels around the card.
I used Deconstructed Sketch #146 for the card.

Hello close by Daniela Dobson

Thanks so much for stopping by.
