Yellow Delight ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is in  a really pale shade of yellow and it has been achieved with Isopropyl and CT4 Spectrum Noir.

The ribbon is organza from Mei Flower  and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  ... and both were white.

Now I am not a yellow person but I must admit that I really do like this card and the shade is so delicate.

The large spacer in the centre of the bow is from the craft shows and I have added a yellow pearl to the centre of that.

The butterflies are also from the craft show and there are loads on a roll that cost me 50p.

So altogether a very fresh looking card.

Thank you for all the comments about my idea of  offering a card as a "Friday Freebie"

I am very flattered and honored that so many of you would like one of my cards.

So from next week which will be the 7th March I will start the ball rolling.

All you need to do is leave me a comment on the card and at the end of that day I will add all the names to a hat and get my film crew to draw one out. ... and I will tell you the name on Saturday morning.

I will need your address to send it to you ... and it is yours no matter where you live.  But you will need to be a follower and leave me that all important comment to win.

And do you know what I have done ?????   I have missed the second birthday of Flowers Ribbons and Pearls on the 2nd February .... stupid girl !!

But it is my Birthday on the 6th March  and Card Making Magics on the 12th March so I won't be forgetting those dates.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Hi Christina
    Yellow is such a cheerful colour and with all the bad weather we have been having it is a wonderful cheer up card to brighten anyone's day.
    Delighted to know that you are going to be offering one of your cards each week your generosity is wonderful.
    You say your film crew will be making the draw does this mean he has had a promotion? If so pass on my congratulations!
