5 in 1

After a hectic 5 days this past week...including working over the w/e...I'm calling this my 5 in 1 wind down creation! This is for the following challenges:
ODBD Shining Light Challenge - Choose 2 colors (yellow, pink, blue or ivory) & use as the focal color.
Raise the Bar - Use sentiment as focal point with no other stamped images.
Creative Cottage - Use a tag.
CCEE - Use swirls.
VLVMar2011 - sketch by Charmaine.
I used a swirl EF for the ivory base and layered a punched strip of Lemon Tart CS by PTI on top. This is such a soft, creamy lemon color and I just love it! I omitted the bow in the sketch because the floral trim was so fancy already. I added the green flourish (pulled from my scrap pile) as a last seemed too plain without a pop of some other color. I cut the sentiment layers to resemble a tag and added a brad. I'm not sure I'm happy with this but it will have to do for now. It's past my bedtime!
STAMPS: Easter Blessings (ODBD)
PAPER: Lemon Tart, Vintage Cream (PTI), Textured ivory (SU)
INK: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Flourish die by Sizzix, Lace trim, MS Floral Band border punch, Swirl EF, CB, Brad, Circle Nestie
