The Traffic Light Card for Paper Players #103

Hello and Happy Sunday to you! It's time for a new challenge over at the Paper Players! Hooray! This week, I am the challenge hostess and I have a fun color combo to try out. Bright and cheerful for the summer season. I sure hope you can join us and play along! :)  
When I got the colors on my desk to get started on my card, they were laid out in the order of Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade. I have also been really inspired to play along with Jennifer Timko's design over at Freshly Made Sketches since it posted earlier this week. I sat down to create my card and all that came to mind....was a traffic light! Haha! Now isn't that random? Creative inspiration comes from many places, so I just went with it and came up with my card, using three layered flowers the Floral Fusion die as the focal point. 
The only stamping on my card was the sentiment, actually. It was a pretty simple card to create but I really like how it turned out. That's a good thing, right? All of the supplies used are listed at the end of the post. 
Thanks for stopping by! Please stop by and visit the rest of the Paper Players Design Team to see what that have whipped up with this week's colors. I hope you will join us and play along, too. The challenge closes on Friday July 13, 2012 at 12:00 Noon (PDT).
