Sunny Yellow

Good morning to you all.  I think my mojo decided to take off - maybe he enjoyed the couple of weeks break when I didn't do anything and doesn't want to start back again! I have started a few cards but not managed to finish anything until now.  So I now have a finished card to show.

My Card

My card is 7" x 5" tent fold made from Anna Marie Designs card stock.  I matted it with yellow pearlescent card and then layered up with SB Elegant Labels 4. I die cut the centre with the largest die from Labels 4 and ran it though the bottom part of M-Bossabilities Framed Petite Labels to get the striped effect, and then ran a Narcissus ink pad over the raised stripes before popping it back.  The sentiment is from ODBD Little Things stamp set and die cut with SB Tranquil Moments. The striped ribbon is from my local haberdashery shop and then a few pearls finished the card. A nice sunny card to reflect the lovely sunny weather we are having.

Hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine - although I think it is not quite so nice in Scotland I'm sorry to say.  For such a small island we certainly get way different weather from one end to the other, don't we?

Take care!
