Congrats to Neva! No one does the combo like she does! I chose Gerber Daisies. I kept the sunny yellows and floral theme and dp, but turned mine on its side, added some gold embossing instead of glitter and made the quote the center of attention.
All images are Our Daily Bread designs. The frames and tulips were all gold embossed. The frame was embossed twice on vanilla colored vellum with the quote stamped inside one with black ink then both were die cut using 2 sizes of the exclusive ODBD Labels One diemade by Spellbinders to fit the Eternity frame. I layered the smaller vellum label (the one with the quote) on top of a piece of white to brighten it a bit, then used a gold leaf pen to edge the labels.
The tulips were all colored using markers and a water brush and cut out. After arranging the layers, I attached the quote and arranged the tulips around it. The finished card measures 6.5 x 5 (A6).
Here's a little tip for the vellum: if you stamp an image like this quote on vellum and it doesn't appear as dark as you'd like, stamp it again on white paper. Line up and attach the vellum image on top of the white image and trim the white so the edges don't stick out. Instantly brighter with darker type!
