Hello You!

Hello all!

I promise this is my last post of the night.. I apoloize for this bombardment but I just wanted to get this challenge in for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. I have found this color combination to be very inspiring. The bold black and white mixed in with a gold color could make for a very rich crisp design. Well here we go! I hope you like it.

Very bold stripes contrast nicely with
the golden circles.
Framed the flowers using golden yellow CS.
I believe this separates the two strikingly different elements
Simple sentiment with the bold design.
Using my new stitched circle die.
This card really turned out fantastically wonderful.. I love the movement of the stripes, the bursts of black on the patterned panel, right down to the simple sentiment. The golden panel is supposed to off center to counteract the funky lines behind. But I feel it all balances out with the stitched circle sentiment.

Entering Challenge:
Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 320
I will be linking this card to Mynn Kitchen's Blog. She is my talented team-mate from House of Cards and is celebrating 5 years of blogging!! She also has a give-away with some fantastic prizes.  Hop over to her blog, On a Stampage and have a looksy.

How to:
  1. Cut and scored white CS base to an A2 size card. Set aside.
  2. Cut a panel slightly smaller then the base and stamped the stripes.
  3. Outlined the panel with a black marker.
  4. Stamped the circle panel and colored portions of the panel golden yellow.
  5. Repeated step 3.
  6. For separation a yellow mat was added off center from the card.
  7.  Repeated step 3.
  8. Die cut a stitched circle then stamped the sentiment.
  9. Adhered sentiment circle using dimensional adhesive.
I believe this card is very impactful and ready to cheer up anyone's day! It is time for me to 'hit the hay'; it is very late here. However, I would like to thank you again for joining me this evening.. I really appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to visit me. Take care and don't forget to leave a comment if you are so inclined. Thanks again everyone and we will see you soon.

All the best,
