Clean & Simple in Yellow & Black

Hi everyone, thanks for dropping by and I hope you all had a good weekend.

The card I made today is something a bit different for me so I will be very interested in any comments you may leave and what you think of my attempt at a CAS style.

I used a Lasting Impressions embossing stencil which I dry embossed onto a circle of white card and I coloured the flowers with Promarker pens lemon and summer sun. The black patterned paper is from the Paper Cellar layered onto a piece of card. I used Cheery Lynn die DL112 for the butterflies which again were coloured with the same Promarkers and finally I added a sentiment which I made on the computer.

Just had a quick look at this posting and I've noticed how much this resembles a poached egg.... Oops!!

This the sketch I followed from MMCS

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Passion for Promarkers challenge 'Bee Happy - yellow & black' (The yellows are Promarkers)

  16. It's a beautiful card Andrea, very clean and fresh looking.
    As for poached I wish I hadn't read that! I love a poached egg and now I fancy one but that's not such a great idea at 10.38pm! Maybe it will be lunch tomorrow.

    I love the CAS style of cards too but they are definitely not my strong point. I did make one this week and I might be brave enough to post it on my blog over the weekend.

    Big hugs
