Hello - (CTD425)

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for this week's new Color Throwdown Challenge!
I'm loving the color combo we have for our CTD challenge this week with the yellow, blue and black.  So much so that I created two cards using these pretty colors.  One of the cards that I made I'm entering into the current Fusion Challenge.  For both cards, I used the My Favorite Things stamp set Bold Blooms along with the Thanks & Hello Die-namics.
For my first card, I used the MFT Diagonal Stripes stencil and turned the stencil so the stripes were vertical and stenciled on some basic gray ink onto basic gray cardstock and adhered it onto my card base.  Next I used one of the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges and die cut a piece of white cardstock.  I also die cut a daffodil yellow Hello from the Thanks & Hello dies and blended on some mustard seed distress ink along the bottom.  After that I stamped and die cut all of my flowers and bits using the Bold Blooms Die-namics and added some dimension to them by doing a little Copic marker coloring on some of the flowers.  I stamped the flowers in daffodil delight and marine mist and the leaves in basic gray.  After arranging my flowers, I adhered them onto my white die cut piece, popping up the large yellow flower and then added foam tape to the back of my white Stitched Scallop Edges piece before adding it to my card base.  To finish off my card, I added some black rhinestones, one on the large yellow flower and three scattered around.
For my second card, I basically repeated most of the steps from my first card except I changed my layout.

Thud! These cards are so drop dead gorgeous! The florals pop so beautifully against the gray stripes (which I'm going to have to try doing)!
