Cheerful Flowers card

I had a lot of fun this morning putting together this card with a new to me stamp and an old patterned paper pack.  It is a little fussy, but sometimes fussy is fun!

(Click on photo to enlarge.)

I colored the image with alcohol markers. My first thought is that this is a cornflower, but I wanted it to be sunny and yellow.  This stamp is part of a RAK I received from Cheryl, who is so generous with her encouragement, too!

Supplies:  Our Daily Bread Designs Don't Worry and Home Sweet Home stamp sets, Memento black ink, alcohol markers, Spellbinders circles and scalloped circles dies, DCWV Citrus mat stack, Fiskars scalloped border punch, EK Success corner punch, Fiskars tag punch, bakers twine

I would love to participate in the following challenges:

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

  1. This is so cheerful and fun with the bright yellow colors and I love how you fussy cut those flowers! In response to your question about my sympathy card today - yes - I used one die to create the embossed frame.......a SB scalloped petite oval. I used 2 rubber pieces to emboss it without cutting it, then used a plain SB petite oval to cut the image panel placed on top of the embossed frame :)
