Make It Count!

Last week, I came across a color challenge that was drop-dead stunning! Black and white with a hint of mustard yellow.  I didn't have time to create a card before the deadline, but finally got around to it!  I also entered this card into the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol (crossing fingers...)! The theme is encouragement.

Here is my latest creation:

I decided to stamp a background of gerber daisies (using two different sizes). I highlighted one using a mustard cardstock.  (A simple button added to the center of the flower.)  I framed the background with mustard and black layers. Stamping the sentiment off-centered and use a corner punch on one corner.
