The first thing I do at 8 o'clock on a Saturday morning is look at the challenge for the week over at Less is More and I have to say I didn't like what I saw this morning - a colour challenge using Yellow - because I'm not a great fan of this particular colour. So onto my next stop which is always the Simply Stampin' challenge where I find a sketch for this week (top right).
So my very own challenge this week is to use yellow with the sketch :0)
I used So Saffron for my base card and used a piece of Whisper White as a mat. Before fixing this to the card blank I partially embossed two horizontal lines, using the Stripes Embossing folder, down the RH side of the card and then attached a knot of So Saffron Taffeta ribbon across the card. I then cut a piece of Whisper White using the smallest of the Framelits dies and a So Saffron frame using the smallest die and the next size up. An image from Bright Blossoms was coloured with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive markers and stamped onto the white die cut (I have this set in clear mount so I didn't even need to use my stamp-a-ma-jig!) This was positioned onto the card before adding a tiny flower, punched with the Itty BittyShapes Punch , with a Basic Pearl in the centre and some more pearls underlining the sentiment. The bottom picture shows the inside of the card (which for some reason, despite taking 10 photos, I couldn't seem to get in focus!) and this is a diecut using the largest of the Framelits dies with the flower from Create a Cupcake stamped in one corner.I hope you all have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and now I must go and get ready for my grandchildren who are coming to visit this afternoon - although I think the housework would be best left until they are gone :0)
