I can remember as a young girl loving the colors aqua and yellow. You can see from this card that I still love those colors. The petals of the flower are from a single stamp that I stamped 5 times using Memento black tuxedo ink. I colored them in using both ProMarkers and watercolor pencils to end up with some very intense colors. Then I cut them out by hand and adhered them with some of my homemade gluedots. The little lady bug was cut from the Walk in My Garden cartridge. I stamped the "Hello" and matted it with a small piece of yellow cardstock and added 3 pieces of Card Candi at the top. I have only white Card Candi, but they can easily be colored with my ProMarkers to match perfectly!
I curved the petals upward a bit for some dimension and adhered both the ladybug and the sentiment rectangle with foam adhesive. The yellow rickrack is from my sewing supplies - some of which I inherited from my mother. No telling how old it is - could be decades!
Here's a quick peek at the inside, dressed up just a little with a border at the top made from the remaining scrap of aqua polka-dot cardstock. don't you love it when you can use every single scrap of a 12" X 12" piece of paper?
Thanks for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
