Yellow Yellow Dirty Fellow

My blog went AWOL last night so most of you must have missed my earlier post. You can check it out HERE.

Hello hello!

So blogger was playing games with me this fine morning. All of my blogs (test blogs etc etc) disappeared from my Dashboard! I was shit scared! I got about twenty mails from you wonderful visitors asking me what's wrong and what's up with my blog, thank you so much for the concern sweeties!

             

On to my card that I have to show… it’s based on the sketch at card patterns, colour splash at PDCC, Tuesday Trigger,Yvonne’s challenge and Simply scrapping crafts. Here you go…

It’s a simple card, I have used CB butterfly diecut, the houndstooth paper scrap left from the last card. The chevron/zigzag pattern is also a print out, I designed this myself on Photoshop. The twine was originally ivory so I coloured it with my best friend, Crayola marker in “Goldenrod”.

The scallops are hand cut and I have added pearls along the scalloped edge.

The yellow diamond gems are from Pie Lane and the sentiment is from TradeFish Designs.

I like this one, it’s cute!

hugs,

E
