S & S Mid Week Throw Down

Here I am back again, this time with the Mid Week Throw Down at Stars and Stamps Blog found here.  The challenge this week is a color challenge using Blue and Yellow.. 
 I just did this card up in a few minutes because I'm am just about ready to call it a night.  I am CASing  Maureen over at Mama Mo Stamps using a method called Bordered Sentiment.  Her instructions are found here.  I picked up this cute "Seedburst" from Memory Boxthis week.  I was going to get fancy and stamp it using different colors, but I'll save that for another day.  Tonight I just stamped it several times using YoYo Yellow by SU.  Then I drew my "border lines"  and random "dots" with a blue Spica pen.   I added some little flowers and gems and chomped my corners and I was done.  I don't have any more creativity in me tonight.   I'll see you again tomorrow.  Hope you all have a wonderful evening.  Those of you who are my age (old) are probably ready for bed just like me and it's only 10:30PM.  I remember the days I could get by on just about 4-5 hours sleep, no more!!!! LOL.  Good night - Sleep Tight.  OH I just noticed that large shadow (not a smudge)  on the left hand side of the card.  Well, as I've often said, I'm not a photographer.

  4. What a great design you chose for this card! Those stamped elements are gorgeous, and I love how you embellished with bling and glitter pen accents! The rounded corners give this such a soft look too! Very pretty!

  6. Love this one Donna! Those bursts of YoYo Yellow against the blue are so pretty. Fabulous1
    I'm thinking your 10:30 bed time is about 30 minutes later than mine! LOL! Sometimes I can make it past 10:00 but not usually! I figure at this age I need all the beauty sleep I can get!!! LOL!

  7. Hi Donna! Great card - I am really impressed that you made the background. I love the yellow flowers and blue dots. I've made a few cards with this layout, but I never thought about using lines to outline the sentiment. Hope you are having a great day!

  8. I, too, am hugely impressed you made your background and yes, the yellow bursts look like fireworks!! The color are wonderful and although I've drawn stitching lines, I've never thought to outline a sentiment. I followed your link to the instructions; thanks for sharing that!

    As for getting older, when I'm annoyed at myself because I can't write as fast as I once could, I try to remind myself that even Michael Jordan slowed down! :)
