Yellow Calliopsis


Hi everyone! This card was inspired by the OWH Stars & Stamps Virtual Cardmaking Party challenge #3 to tie a yellow ribbon on.  The gorgeous floral image is the Calliopsis digital stamp by the Digi Doodle Shop.  I paired it with gorgeous patterned paper from the Cosmo Cricket DeLovely Collection.


My card base is kraft cardstock layered with PTI White then patterned paper stitched around the edges.  The floral image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I rounded the corners of both the image and kraft cardstock I layered it on.  The sentiment was stamped in memento tuxedo black.  To embellish the card I added yellow wrinkled ribbon and a snow pearl in each corner.

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