How are you today? How was your Mother's Day? I hope it was a special one. Have you been busy creating wonderful things? I've just been working at creating cards so that I don't get behind! Life is good!
A new challenge begins today at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Today, our new challenge is -
What a fun challenge! I love yellow, for me, it is probably the most difficult color to photograph. I have chosen an older stamp duo for my card. Want to see it? LOL Here it is:
For my card, I used Pion papers from a couple of collections as I was going for the color. I also used two Magnolia stamps from the Summer Memories Collection. The Tilda is called Honeybee Tilda. Diana does not currently have her in stock, but if you are interested, just contact her. The large flower stamp, Summer Daisy, with the background included, is in stock. You can find it HERE. You know, I was thinking about how cute some of the new sitting Tilda stamps would be as a great pairing with this Summer Daisy stamp. Hmmmm...
I wanted to go "shabby" with this card because of the papers' colors. I inked and distressed the edges, added some Shabby White Fran-tage, a very pale yellow lace and seam binding, a hidden tag, flowers from my stash, some glitter, and a bumble bee embellishment on the bow of a hidden tag. I love how it turned out!
The interior has also been finished in Pion papers, die cuts, flowers, seam binding, etc. I have to finish the insides when I make a card! I tried just doing the front and it was more work to later add, and remember, all the products I had previously used when I did the front, LOL! **YIKES! - my memory is to far gone to do that! **
I hope you will leave a comment below as well as on the blogs of my fellow Teamies! One name will be drawn from those comments. That person will win something wonderful from Diana!
