I have couple of cards for this challenge. 

Happy Birthday

I have used the Bold Daisy stencil from Hero Arts to make my background. I was watching TV and sponged some distress ink colours in random combination on a few white card panels. Then I choose couple of panel that I liked to make my card. Rainbow colours are always my favourite. I trimmed the panel smaller than the card front, spattered water to get texture on the card and adhered the panel to the fog card front.

The beautiful rainbow bold daisy is the highlight of the card. So my sentiment will be bold with high contrast and it will be my focal point. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Painted Birthday die. I die cut three out of black card stock and layered glued them for added dimension.  I adhered the sentiment die cut on the top centre of the card front and embellished with rose gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

For my second card, I simply loved the colour combination of distress inks I sponged on the stencil. I have used Blueprint Sketch, Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks.

Blue and yellowHB

The yellow ink at the centre of the panel gives a glow behind the bold contrasting sentiment die cut. Everything else is the same as the previous card except for the colour combination and the orientation of the card. Hope you like both my cards. I did not like the colour combination of the two other panels I sponged. I am not giving up on them but will try and reinvent them to make cards.

Two gorgeous cards. I really love the colour combination you chose, especially the blue and yellow as those are colours I seldom use but I will try them now. Your cards are truly an inspiration Gayatri!
