I finished 2 Tuesday challenges on a Tuesday!! Woot! I'm starting the new year off right, even though I'm sure it won't last :)
This card is for the FTTC48 challenge where Makiko challenges us to use yellow and black with 1 more color of our choice. It's also following the great sketch from Mercy's MTSC#55.
I began with a white 5x7 card base, adding layers of black and pale yellow. I stamped the Flourishes daffodil image with Versafine Black Onyx ink on wc paper, and embossed with clear ep, then colored the image with Tombows. I layered it using nesties circles and scalloped circles. I punched the vertical black border with a SU scalloped punch, and cut the yellow panel with deckled scissors. I layered 2 different ribbons from my stash, and then added 3 black primas with 3 tiny yellow buttons. I had just a smidgen of ribbon left, and rather than save it to my already over-flowing ribbon snippets, I just added it to the top corner with a black Kaiser pearl. I also added a tiny pearl to the inside of one flower. The sentiment is from So Many Sayings and that's also stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink. This is another card that will be going in my next box of cards for soldiers. I never realized how important these cards are for our men and women serving in the military, especially in remote areas where cards aren't available.

I hope you're all having a fabulous Tuesday!
