Something Yellow

What a relief it is to be feeling better, I've been in bed for the last few days with the mother of all colds.  I'm upright, dressed and itching to craft so I must be on the mend!
Here's my card from our Monday night craft session.  This week, after tea and home made sticky chocolate cake, we all all crafted along the theme of "something yellow".  I decided to go with sunflowers, I think we could all do with a splash of sunshine at the moment!
I dug out much much loved and much used Papermania sunflower stamps and inked up this beauty with Rich Cocoa Memento, then coloured with Promarkers.
The papers are Prima Sun Kiss, one of my very favourite stacks that I'll never tire of using.  Great minds think alike and all that, as my friend, Margaret, used this stamp and these papers on her project too, although we ended up with totally different cards.
I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set to create a leafy mat and die cut two delicate butterflies using Spellbinders dies.  Ribbon, a bow, orange gems and four huge pearls are the finishing touches.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Papertake - add a bow
Use it Tuesday - #48 - warm colours.  My older stash is the papers, stamp and pearls
Inky Chicks - #2 - bingo - die cuts, bow, pearls
Kaboodle Doodles - #155 - ribbon
CI Paint - favourite stamp
Card Crafter's Circle - #58 - layers
Die Cuttin' Divas - #99 - edge punch and ribbon
Created With Love - #25 - anything goes
