It's Yelow at Crafts and Me

Morning Peeps,

I know my third post of the week, and yes it's certainly been a busy crafting week,  and I have two more posts to come on Friday, both being blog hops. I am so worn out I definitely need an early night.

Now Teresa has tasked us to create something with "Yellow".  Gosh if you had read my Simply Sassy post a couple of weeks back you'll know that Yellow isn't me, but onward and upward as they say but.....I have to say I really like what I have created this time, perhaps yellow is growing on me.

I have used the crafts and me stamp, "Pansy Sisters" by Sara Burrier and I thought this would make a lovely Mother's Day card.  This is the first side step card I have done, believe it or not.  Don't know why it took me this long to get round to doing one, it was dead simple too.  The only thing though is it's hard to photograph and do the card justice. 

I have added some stamen to the middle of the pansys which really gives it dimension, just a little idea I had.

Here's a better view.  I used my copic airbrush to make the yellow flowers as I didn't possess any, lol.

Materials Used:-
Image by Crafts and Me, "Pansy Sisters" available HERE
Medium - Copics
Martha Stewart Border Punch & Leaf Punch
Magnolia Swirl Die
Magnolia Tag Die
Ribbon and Pearls from Stash
Stardust Stickles

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-
Claudia and Company - Use 3 out of the 4 colours (yellow, lavender, green)
My time to craft - Mum's the word 
Cupcake Craft - flowers for mum 
House of Gilli - Flowers and Pearls 
Kaboodoodle - Spring has sprung 
Stamps R Us - Spring 
 Dream Valley - Mother's Day
Sparkles Forum - Spring 
A Gem of a challenge - Anything but square 
Fairy Fun Friday - spring 
Totally Gorjuss - spring has sprung 
Stamping with the Dragon - Bring on spring

Don't forget we have our first Crafts and Me Bllog Hop on Saturday evening running for two weeks, many pirzes, so see you there!
