Splashes of yellow

Ok really this post should be called Mustard and Daffodil but it just didn't sound right.

This first card is for A Passion for Papertrey's Circles Challenge, Friday Mashup's Challenge #59 to use a decorative edge and/or a ribbon or bow and for Play Date Café's Challenge #132 to use black, white and a splash of mustard.

Here's the colour inspiration photo from Play Date Cafe's.


And here's my card.

My next card is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #98 and Cupcake Crafts Challenge #192 to make a birthday card with no patterned paper, so I made my background with my woodgrain stamp instead. I thought this sketch was going to be very difficult at first, but I took inspiration from Jen Cuthbertson's card and came up with this cowboy themed birthday card for my boyfriend, whose birthday is today!

My final card for this post if for SC385 for the sketch and Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #124 to be inspired by this photo. I love the idea of flowers in a jug, so used my Iconic Images, which I haven't used for ages. I know the flowers look more like carnations than tulips, but you get the idea!


Recipe:


And that's all for this post. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I stopped by to take a look at your circle card that I saw on Passion for Papertrey, and got a real treat. So much eye candy on one post. All three of your cards are just lovely. Very fun what you did with the WM sketch. And, I love how you combined the circles from dot spot with that dotted tag its frame. So clever.
