OLW #80 Two by Two plus Masking

Wow! This one was tough! Two stamps, two colours and masking. And if you HAVE to add a sentiment (I do!) then it has to be in one of the two colours used previously. See Susan's blog for the full challenge.

I finally came across an oldie-but-goodie set - "Bodacious Blooms" by Stampin' Up! I used one of the solid flowers, plus the leaf/stem stamp.

Then I realized how limiting the two colour rule was - I wanted to rock and roll the stamps to get more dimension, but that would have been more than two colours.

OK, enough chat! Here's the card. Let me know what you think!

PS - like my new blog banner? I'll tell you more about it (and the lovely lady who designed if for me) next week.

Stamps: Stampin' Up (Bodacious Blossoms), Papertrey Ink (sentiment)
Paper: Gina K Pure Luxury 120 lb
Ink: Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: none
