Mellow Yellow

Hi friends!  I'm back again today to share a card I made with Sarah's May Week 4 Viva la Verve sketch. This sketch hit on release day and I've had it sitting on my desk waiting for a spare minute since then.  So glad I finally got the chance to play along, because I love how it turned out.

I started by cutting the oval with Nestabilities and then using the die as a stencil to sponge on some tumbled glass distress ink.  Next I stamped the title sentiment from Wonderful Marvelous to the side of the oval, then pulled out Be Blessed and stamped the flower twice in so saffron.  I cut one out with the coordinating Petal Points Die Set and cut the inner portion of the other stamped flower out by hand to pop up for some dimension.  While I had the flowers out, I also randomly stamped them tone on tone on the so saffron panel. Next I added some black sprigs cut with the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set all around, substituting for the little banner coming off the side of the sketch.  The card base is embossed with a polka dot folder and I added a rounded corner to the top of each rectangle panel, then finished off with a sparkly gem center for the flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Be sure to come on back tomorrow for our monthly Diva Inspirations Hop and challenge!
