SPCC Challenge #7

Last night I worked on a couple of challenges and the first was the SPCC challenge #7. When I first saw this color combo it kinda freaked me out a lil'! It was the yellow! I don't often use yellow but once I got started I calmed down and now I have made one card I have an idea for another! So the color combo really wasn't that bad at all!


I thought the colors were cheery and so I thought of the sentiment 'Cheer Up Buttercup' from Scattered Showers from PTI. So I decided to use the stamps from that set too along with Polka Dot Basics.


I'm pleased with the turn out of the card & I'm sure it would make some one smile & cheer them up!

{Ingredients}
Card Stock: SU! Whisper White
Ink: SU! Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive. PTI Summer Sunrise
Stamps: PTI Scattered Showers & Polka Dot Basics
Accessories: SU! 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon Always Artichoke & Tempting Turquoise. Yellow Satin Ribbon from stash, Foam Pads.

I hope to share another card or 2 later for some other challenges I've been working on. Thanks for stopping by and your comments are ALWAYS appreciated.

You should be proud of this card! It definitely made me smile. And I loved it when you said, "It's the yellow." Yellow tends to freak me out a bit, too. LOL!
