Just a quick little card today, for two challenges!  Less is More has a color challenge of yellow; and Our Creative Corner also has a yellow color challenge:

I pulled out one of my favorite retired sets, Garden Pleasures, to make a little square card:


After looking at this photo, I put a new ribbon on…..that one looked a little shabby!  I always tell my customers to give yourself plenty of ribbon so you don’t get frustrated when you tie your knot or bow…and I didn’t follow my own advice!    At any rate, the image was stamped in Stazon on watercolor paper and colored with More Mustard, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight inks.  SU’s new Daffodil Delight seam binding is such a pretty spring embellishment!



Thanks for visiting today!


A little sleepyhead!
