Sunset Happy Day

My inspiration for today’s card definitely comes from the beautiful sunsets we’ve been having here lately in Upstate New York.  Excuse the blurriness, but it was going down so fast, I just wanted to capture the gloriousness of it while I could.sunset

When I saw this week’s CASE(E) this Sketch Challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

You see, one of the things I LOVE about Stampin’ Up! are the many variations of a single color.  Generically speaking, yellow is yellow, but at the same time it can have a deeper, brighter, or orangier (yes, that’s a word) feel to it.  I took full advantage of the many variations of Stampin’ Up! colors for today’s card.

For my card, I started with abackground of Cherry Cobbler layered with Whisper White.

From there, I used different shades of cardstock from yellow to red:  Starting with yellow, we have Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, and Hello Honey.

Then we have Pumpkin Pie, Tangelo Twist, and Tangerine Tang0.  To finish off on the bottom, I used Cherry Cobbler.

The sentiment, “Happy Day” is from the Sale-a-bration Perfect Pairing in Tangelo Twist.

Enjoy!
