Yellow and brown

Hey! Phew, what a hot, hot day we have today - again! I do like summer and sun and warm days, but tht's a bit too much. We've been having over 30 degrees Celsius for the last week or so. And it looks like it's gonna stay like this for at least another week.

It was too hot to go out today, so I just stayed in and watched some TV, I finally replied to some e-mails and of course I also did some crafting. :) Here's one of the cards I made today ...


This card was made by request. My co-worker saw a card I made some time ago and asked me if I could make a similar one, just in yellow and brown tones. And this is the result. I used the sweet Flying angel Tilda stamp for the main image. Isn't she just too cute? This is definitely one of my favourite Tilda stamps. I colored the image with Promarkers and yellow Faber Castell color pencil. I used glitters on Tilda's wings. You know, just to add some bling to the card. ;) I just used plain brown and plain yellow papers from my stash. I did embossing with Floral Cottage embossing folder. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz's distress ink. I used a tiny flower punch for the flower and put pearls in the middle. I also used some ribbon from my stash - I love this yummy brown ribbon. :D

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Crop Stop - Pearls
Papertake Weekly - Bingo (pearls, ribbon, free - glitters)
Challenge up your life - No patterned paper
Paper crafting journey - Anything goes
Bearly mine - Bring on the bling
