JustRite Friday Challenge 52: Color and Inspiration

Once I had a chance to work on this JustRite challenge, my mojo went missing, so here I am getting my post in shortly before the deadline again -- sigh!!! Even though this card is nothing like what was in my head, I like it!
I paired some pretty K & Company papers I've had forever with Spellbinders' Blossom Three cut from PTI's Lemon Tart & Summer Sunrise CS. A fun discovery was that my 'You're So Sweet' sentiment (from JR's stamp set of the same name) fits perfectly in the Spellbinders' Blossom Three #2 die -- how fun is that?!
Since I only had two of the four Copic suggested colors, Y21 (Buttercup Yellow) & YG63 (Pea Green), I stamped my sentiment in Memento's Rich Cocoa and colored the border with them. My leaves are cut from Spellbinders' Foilage die and my triple-layered borders are die cut using Spellbinders' Big Scalloped Border Petites and finished off with clear gems Copic colored with my Y21 marker -- another of my fav Copic tricks! I gathered up my center-stitched ribbon and distressed all edges with either Wild Honey or Peeled Paint Distress Inks.
Can't wait to go see all the other challenge entries!!!
