Creative Crew color combo card

One of this month's Creative Crew challenges is a color combo: Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso. I love this combo! We also made this card at a workshop last week.
The card base is Very Vanilla 8 X 5 1/4, scored at 4". That is attached to a piece of Daffodil Delight 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. I sponged the edges of the Daffodil piece with Early Espresso to tone down the color a bit. Next I ran some Early Espresso cardstock and Jolly Holiday DSP through the Top Note die. The shape has a perforated border all around, and I trimmed that away on the Jolly Holiday piece so the Early Espresso piece would be a mat. I colored the flowering branch with markers and then stamped it onto Very Vanilla. Next I used the cutter kit to rough the edges and sponged on a little Early Espresso. The finishing touch is a bow made with Cherry Cobbler seam binding and an antique brad. I found the bow tutorial on Mary Brown's blog. It's so easy and so pretty!
P.S. That's 2 non-holiday projects using the Jolly Holiday DSP! I'm trying to use it up.
Happy stamping!
