Pretty in Blue and Yellow

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful start to your week! I got a chance to create a card this evening so my day has been good.

I made this card using Flourishes A Year of Flowers Stamp Set 3 for their challenge Sunshine and Blue Skies. I used the sketch challenge from Card Patterns #67. The card base is a golden yellow card stock. I used a flower Impressability to emboss the blue Post-it cards stock and then sanded the embossing to bring out the core. I added yellow dotted ribbon and a small bow tied with the Bow Easy and then added a golden yellow button to the bow and at the opposite corner of the card. The corner punch reads "happy birthday!" from Melanie Muenchinger's A Charmed Life. The image is the October flower the chrysanthemum. I paper pieced the flowers and popped up several of the flowers in the image.


This is the inside of the card. I used another piece of Post-it card stock with the Impressability and sanded down. I used the circle Nestability for the sentiment and lightly sponged the background.

This card is for the two challenge I mentioned:
Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is wonderful!

Inky hugs,
