Sunshine colors

Today is the start of a new "Stella Says Sketch" over at Catch the Bug. This is my interpretation of the sketch, using bold colors and a flower image from Bugaoo - you can find it here.


Today we have a little bit of sunshine,but for the most part it's been greatly missed for several months now, so I made this card  adding bright sunshine colors that cheer me up.
I die cut the image using a circle die, I colored the blue background while the image was still inside of the die, leaving a narrow white strip along the edges. I placed it onto a die cut scalloped edged circle. I handcut a banner for the sentiment and chose two use two yellow enamel dots as only embellishment.

I'd like to enter my card in these challenges as well:
1) Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge - #214 Circles
2) Addicted to Stamps and More -  #132 Make Your Mark (Image colored with Promarkers)
3) Creative Card Crew - #81 Birthday with Sentiment
4) Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes with a Twist of Sunshine (sunshine colors)
