Twisted Card #056 "YELLOW"

Today Anam, creator of http://www.twistedsketches.com/ has revealed her latest card sketch with "yellow" being the twist...any how any way. Let me just tell you, my Twisted Sisters did a fabulous job. Their cards are all so cheery, bright & beautiful! Be sure to stop by and check them out, you will be glad you did! :)

For me, I wouldn't say that yellow has ever been one of my top favorite colors; so I struggled with this for awhile. Digging through my mountains of paper yet to be touched, I found some fabulous papers in one of my K&Company pads. The line is called "Handmade" and it is filled with beautiful papers in yummy yellows, hot pinks, purples & greens. In addition, I used Cosmo Cricket Ready-Set-Chip Red Line Alphas, yellow glitter alpha stickers from my stash, a sweet yellow Jenni Bowlin butterfly, yellow seem binding, foam dots, & Colorbox Lipstick Red Chalk Ink. I decided to do some hand stitching with hot pink floss and created the pattern using my handy In-Stitchz Edgy Border template. Lastly, the bright pink cabochon in the center of the bow is made out of Sculpey Clay. I created the fab texture on it using bisque stamps I purchased from Charity Elise on Etsy. These are lots of fun to work with...if interested, you can check out her shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/chARiTyelise?ref=pr_shop.

Thanks for stopping by, and as always thanks for all the sweet supportive comments you leave me!
HAPPY EASTER to you and yours!

Beautiful!!!! I have that pad of paper but I rarely use it- you really brought out it's best qualities. The yellow bow is a great touch- I'm going to have to get started on my cards soon!
PS- got your FANTASTIC thank you gift! How awesome are those home made pins? I am adding them to my next layout!!! Lola tried to eat the Easter Peeps but she liked sticking them onto the wall more. :)
