My Big Yellow Flower

Today on Splitcoaststampers, the Queen for the Day #65 is Vicki Dutcher. I wanted to case this card of hers.  I am mostly just keeping the sketch. I am using a big flower instead of a butterfly and different papers/ribbon. I want to enter it into the Dirty Dozen Monthly Theme challenge on SCS which is 'Text Me' so I used my text background stamp.

Use it Tuesday #9-Use your unused dies, punches, cut-outs.  Mine is the large flower die cut by Sizzix  called Flower, Beauty Bloom that I've had for about a month and never used. I did my flower with Stampin'Up! Crushed Curry and a soft Martha Stewart yellow paper and sponged the tips on the middle layer with SU Crushed Curry ink.

Southern Girls Challenge #21-Anything Goes

Recipe:
Stamps: Stampendous Dream Text, Stampin'Up! Vintage Labels (sentiment)
Paper: PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Crushed Curry,  Martha Stewart yellow cs,  ColorBok designer paper
Ink: Stampin'Up! Crushed Curry, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Sizzix Die-Flower, Beauty Bloom, Martha Stewart Double Loop punch (showing one loop only), sponge, Offray ribbon, EK Sucess brad, gemstones Stampin'Up! oval punch
