Back in the Saddle

I finally got to stamp today!  Yea!  Things were a little crazy and I didn't feel much like stamping after Drennen's accident last week, and then we took a mini vacation to Florida for a few days and just got home last night.  I was aching to try some of my new goodies from SU! so I used two of the new core colors on this card that I made for Susan's OLW challenge this week to use a flourish.

This picture does not do these colors justice.  Cherry cobbler is not as blue as it looks in the picture, and daffodil delight is more of a golden yellow.  They are much more vibrant IRL.

You probably can't tell by the picture, but I embossed the flowers and sentiment.  You'll just have to take my word for it when I say this card is much prettier when you hold it in your own two hands.  It is a 4 1/4" square card.

Supplies used:
Stamps - Baroque motifs, Inkadinkado sentiment
Paper - Daffodil delight
Ink - Daffodil delight, cherry cobbler, versamark
Accessories - clear EP, heat gun, half pearls

Thanks, Susan, for providing me with a challenge that was easy enough to get me back in the saddle!
