Paper Playtime #16 - Lots of Yellow

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend!! I can't believe how nice the weather has been...temps in the 70's, blue skies. Last year at this time we were having a heat wave with temps hovering close to the 100's. It's been so nice, I just want to be outside, which is bad because it cuts into my crafting time :)


The challenge this week at Paper Playtime is - Lots of Yellow. The sponsor for this challenge is Close to My Heart Consultant Lucy Kelleher. You could win a $10 gift certificate to her online store (must have a USA address) so be sure to link up your yellow projects :)


The base of my card is black cardstock from The Paper Studio, cut with a Spellbinders Grand Labels One die. The next layer is also a Grand Labels One die with paper from Authentique's Essentials collection. The next layer was cut with a Spellbinders Botanical Swirls and Accents die. I cut the paper so the patterns matched and lined up with the layer below, and then popped up the Botanical Swirls with foam tape for dimension.


The center cuts are from the Botanical Swirls and Accents dies, the black layer offset from the pattern paper. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my sweet friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces. The tag is a Spellbinders Back to Basics Tag, inked with Tim Holtz Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed Distress Inks. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 2 set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - August Anything Goes
  3. Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because Linky Party
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Paper Playtime to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Yellow project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

Also, be sure to stop back by tomorrow for the first week of the Prima Doll Blog Hop!!

The card is really cool! Your die layers are wonderfully chosen and stacked. I find the color yellow is difficult to work with but you somehow have made it look elegant, airy and easy to use!

Have a great week!

My sweetest friend, this is the most elegant burst of sunshine I've ever seen! Your take on the challenge couldn't be more lovely. The papers are truly stunning and I love that fact that you lined up the layers to keep the design intact. Speaking of which, those layers are beautiful! So lacy and pretty. And seriously, when I first saw that plethora of sunshiny ribbon, my heart fluttered with every crinkle! Talk about ruffles of sunshine... that is THE most beautiful ribbon-centric detail. The sweet sentiment is marvelous and you know I love the sprinkle of sparkles. **happy sigh** Exquisite creation, my dear Lisa. Thank you for bringing a smile to my heart tonight!

Hugs and blessings!
