You're The Best

Hi everyone!  The cute little girl featured in today's card is from the You're The Best stamp set by Hero Arts.  I colored the little girls hair to match the More Mustard patterned paper and paired it with Ballet Blue.  The little flower in her hair is so adorable I decided to embellish the card with some similiar flowers.    

My card base is Ballet Blue layered with PTI White then More Mustard patterned paper from the Stampin' Up patterns pack.  I stitched around the edges then added a strip of Basic Black finished on both sides using the Arch Lattice Edge Punch.  I wrapped white satin ribbon around the strip and tied a bow in front.  The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges then layered it on to Ballet Blue. 

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White and punched out using the Modern Label Punch.  I also stamped the little flowers and colored them in using copic markers before cutting them out and attaching to the card base with mounting tape.  To finish off the card I added some black rhinestones along the edge of the image.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

I would never have thought to put more mustard with ballet blue, but it looks great! That big bow is the perfect finishing touch to this cute card too. Have a great weekend. x

what a pretty color combo with the mustard and blue. The mustard really makes that blue pop and I love the little bit of black too. Very sweet.

Love the lace stamp and the little flowers!

Sweet card!! The blue really stands out on this card...maybe because of the yellow/mustard color. Really like it!
