The splash of daffodil for Colour INKspiration #19

Hello and Welcome to another wonderful and exciting Colour INKspiration challenge!!

Image may contain: outdoor
We have some lovely colours (again!) to share with you this time - Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, and Garden Green.

I've created a U fold garden in a crate for my card.

This is actually a birthday card for a work colleague - I've put her very special birthday number on the right hand side of her card but I didn't photograph the finished card with the number.

I also made another version with ferns stamped at the base of each side of the card.

Supplies:  Daisy Delight, Painted Harvest, and Rose Wonder stamp sets;  Daisy Punch, Leaf Punch, Rose Garden thinlits, Wood Crate thinlits, and the Pinewood Planks embossing folder

My measurements are:  
Cardstock for the base is 10 1/2 cm x 28 1/2 cm and scored along the long side at 6,10,18 1/2, 22 1/2.  The wood crate (cut and assembled without the base) is attached on three sides in the centre of the card giving it the stability. 
 This card still folds to fit into a standard size envelope

I hope you are inspired to create with these lovely colours too.  You can add your project to our facebook challenge page using this link below.  

And please keep on hopping through the whole design team - we have an amazing and talented group with some awesome inspiration for you!!
Next on the hop is Elizabeth back at the beginning!!

Until Next time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia  x
