Combining Challenges

Hello Stampin' Friends.  Sorry I'm at this so late.  Seems like I've been burning up the phone lines today.  But it's always nice to have a chat with a friend or brother.

I'd like your opinion.  Which photo do you like the best?  This one......


or this one......


I tend to like the white background but I do so admire the photos with the colored backdrop.

This card uses the colors from the Color Challenge on SCS to use Night of Navy, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  I also used the sketch challenge on SCS today.

I decided to keep the white space but used different textures for the sections.

I inked the Very Vintage Large Wheel with Daffodil Delight and wheeled over the flower sections.  It gave it a very subtle pattern.

I used some faux flower soft in the center of the flower.  MrsBoz on SCS gave me the recipe.  Just rub 2 styrofoam balls together into a plastic bag and put a drop of re-inker in to color it.  Thanks for the tip Carroll Ann.

Bonnie, I do love them both but I think I like the colored backdrop with your white card. It really pops and picks up those green leaves! Just my opinion. Lovely card, btw. And, what a neat way to make faux flower soft. Thanks for sharing that.

I agree that the coloured background highlights the white card better. I love the card layout and design too.
