Some Summer Color

Here we are at week 17 of our ODBD Shining the Light Challenges and today you get to do some choosing of colors.  You can make a creation with Blue, Yellow and Green together ....or two of those colors, OR one of them creating something monochromatic.   Sound fun? 

Here's mine: 

I chose to go mostly monochromatic in shades of yellow, using this pretty The Lord has Risen set.   I love how cheerful Apricot looks, and I feel sad that SU is retiring it.  The flowers are colored with Copic Markers Y17, Y19, Y35, Y38 and I think a little YR04, and the leaves with YG00, YG01, YG03). Then I masked it and sponged Apricot ink over top.  I used this weeks' Mojo Sketch 142.

I love this SU ribbon, gee wiz why didn't I crack this open sooner?  It was part of a combo set, it's quite thick and lacy.  Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch along the bottom and SU's new Square Lattice Embossing Folder. 

Of course the part I can never get to photograph well - I used a gold spica pen all over the design to give it sparkle.  You can probably only see a hint of it in the flower centers....but it's all over!   The sentiment is from one of the new Fuschia sets, From Me to You, I just used my marker and bent the sentiment to fit in the circle. 
There are never a shortage of people that need prayer are there?  So never a shortage of people you could send a card like this to!
