Holla Yella! (and challengechallengechallenge challenge!)

So. Yup. Another yellow card.  I have this yellow paper just laying about because I am too lazy to put it away soooo I thought I would do up another yellow card that I can actually enter into a few challenges.  Woohoo!  A card for more than one challenge hardly EVER happens for me!  Anyways, I am entering this card into My Sheri Crafts Challenge #114 What's the Buzz which is to use the color combo of white, yellow and black .I entered one card into this challenge a day or so ago and that entry got me onto this yellow kick!  I am also going to enter this into Cute Card Thursday Challenge#278 Oranges and Lemons as this cardstock is the most lemony color I have ever seen!  I also am putting this card over at Papertake Weekly Challenge as this week it is Button's and Bow's and lastly over at my favie girls spot The Die Cut Diva's as they are doing Florals for the month of July.  Whew!  I don't think that I have ever entered a card in more than two challenges at the very most!  Feels kinda fun!  Almost like I actually have accomplished something on this most heat wavey hot Friday morn'!  So, onto my card.....

I used several complimentary Spellbinder dies on this card as well as some pre-made KaiserKraft roses that I decided to color with my copics to better match the cardstock.  Another little "duh" moment for me that I am embarrassed to say took me way to long to figure out....that copics could be used to alter and coordinate the colors of embellies.....yikes!  How long have I been crafting?  Anyways, the card is pretty self explanatory.  I used a vertical JustRite Stamp image  and added two little flourishes to the top and bottom of the sentiment.  I also used JustRite Stamps on the inside of the card....both the the little flourishey thingy as well as the sentiment.  This card is for a wedding of a very special couple to me.  I have known them for about 21 years and they have been together for app 35 and are finally able to get married this coming week.  Since the couple is older I wanted to use a more mature and stylish color palette and luckily this combo worked out really well!  Here is my card.



And here is the inside.  I wanted to try a more ornate inside to go with the fussy, fancy outside.  I also want to try this style of inside in an all white color scheme too....I think the layers of white would look really "rich" and luxurious!


Thank you so much for stopping by today and thank you for your comments.  I am slowly but surely making my rounds to all of my favie blogs to see everyone else's incredible creations.

Be well,
Sheila
