Hello


TGIF Peeps!!
Hope you all have had a great week, it has been non stop rain and gloom here in southwest MO all week.  So I thought I would try and chase away some of the gloom with a bright sun shiney card.
I hear that yellow and gray is a hot color combo right now and I can certainly understand why after working with them.
I wanted to use some of the new and coming to customers in April, "Summer Smooches" products. I finally dove into the Designer Paper and Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon.
The base of the card is Basic Gray card stock and then I added pretty piece of DSP.
I then used another piece of basic gray card stock that I had embossed with the dots folder.


The stamp is from the "Just Believe" stamp set from Stampin' Up. I stamped it with Basic Gray ink onto the  whisper white card stock.
I then used my Boho Blossom punch and punched a few flowers with some daffodil delight card stock.
the smallest flower at the top is made with one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. I "cupped" all the flowers by using my mat pack and stylus. Lay the punched flower onto the foam piece from the mat pack and using your stylus make small circles in the middle of the flower which makes the flower curl up a bit.
I added the flowers to the card using my tombow glue. I then added a pearl to each flower center.
The sentiment comes from the SAB Elementary Elegance stamp set.  I used the 1-1/4 inch and 1-3/8 inch circle punches to make the circle sentiment piece. I added a row of pearls under the sentiment and some pearls to the corners.
Thanks for stopping by today and 
HAPPY STAMPING!!!

I haven't done this combo in a long time, but I love it!! Yellow and black is just too stark for me usually, and reminds me of bees. (shudder) Fine if I'm doing cute little punched bees, not so much for other stuff. lol I love this card!! So glad I found this on Kim Score's blog.
