Hello everyone! I cannot believe how quickly my school holidays have gone. So much to do in so little time. I have had so many appointments and people to catch up with. I have a card to share with you. It follows the latest challenge from The Shabby Tea Room. You are asked to create a card or project inspired by the INSPIRATION PHOTO USING YELLOW, GREEN, WHITE (OR CREAM) AND INCLUDE FLOWERS AND POLKA DOTS!

Oh my dear friend yellow is back and always is a challenge for me. However, I have papers from Kaisercraft 's Pickled Pear collection and they work perfectly for this challenge. As there were yellow flowers in the paper I wanted the paper to stand out.

I die cut a filigree frame and cut the centre out. I attached it with some small pieces of foam tape. It frames a lovely cluster of yellow roses. I began to layer from there. I used a scallop polka dot die cut, then some lace, rose trim and some pearls.

I stamped my sentiment and created a fishtail banner to frame it. Some cherry blossom, leaves, bow and a butterfly complete my card.


Paper: Kaisercraft Pickled Pear 6 1/2" paper pad

Stamp: Grant Archival (old stamp and I no longer have packaging)??

Ink: Memento tuxedo black

Other: Spellbinders A2 filigree delight and Les papillions two, Francheville vintage lace ribbon, Hooked on Craft leaves, Die-namics fishtail flags stax, ribbon, creme rose trim, Kaisercraft pearl strip, cherry blossoms.

Thanks for stopping by!
