Thinking of You PSC Blog Hop

Hi friends.  Welcome to the Perfect Sentiment Blog Hop in honor of National Scrapbooking Day which is Saturday, May 5.  No, we are not doing scrapbook pages, but still creating cards.

Each Perfect Sentiment design team member is hosting a card challenge with a twist - 10 card challenges to choose from.  Do one, some, or all! 

Those participants that complete four or more of our challenges will have a chance to be the random winner of our Grand Prize (photo posted on the Perfect Sentiment home page)!

Visit each Perfect Sentiment design team member's blog and choose the card challenges that appeal to you and sound like fun to create. Upload a photo of your completed card by doing the following: 
Leave a comment on this post that you completed this challenge/twist.

Want an opportunity to win the Grand Prize?  
Complete four (4) or more of the ten (10) individual challenges.  
Comment on the Blog Hop post on the Perfect Sentiment home page indicating the challenges you completed.  Winner is via a random drawing.
So, let's get to it.  My challenge for you is to create a card with the sentiment of Thinking of You.  The Twist is to use this photo for your color combination.
I think it has lots of variations of the main colors - red, yellow, green with a dash of white.  Here is my card.
 The image is one that was sent to me by a friend called Bloom, but I don't know who the manufacturer is.  The sentiment comes from Hero Arts - Thinking of You - which is one of my most favorite stamp sets. 
Materials Used:
Cardstock - Stampin Up - Daffodil Delight, Bravo Burgundy, and Handsome Hunter; Xpress It Copic Blending paper;
Designer Paper is Basic Gray - Hello Luscious.
Ink - Stampin Up - Bravo Burgundy
Accessories:  Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts; Leaves - Martha Stewart Fir Branch Punch 
Copic Markers:  B0000; B14; G00, G03, G07; YG01, YG03, YG05; Y11, Y13, Y15, Y32, Y35, Y38; R21, R24, R27, R81 and R83.

Now, it's your turn.  We have lots of fun planned for you. Before I send you off to visit the rest of the Design Team, take a look at the Blog Candy that I'm offering to one lucky winner (chosen randomly). 
 The papers are from the Prima collection - Fairy Belle.  There are some pearls and an assortment of ribbon and braid, and a Bildmalarna stamp - Mimosa Butterfly.

 In order to win, you must either be a Follower or become a Follower of my blog; create a card according to the challenge mentioned above; leave a comment here on my blog and  link back to your blog or other gallery where you post your cards so I can see your card.  The winner will be posted after 6 PM on Sunday when the Blog Hop closes.

Here is a list of the Design Team members.  Check them out and pick the 4 or more that you would like to play along with.  Good luck and most importantly, have fun!
