YNS Inspirational Post
This is an inspirational post that we will have on the 22nd of each month. People can find more YNS inspiration on Facebook, Pinterest, the YNS Newsletter, and YNS Challenges. We will have special deals each month during this special post.
I would like to invite you to visit the YNS Blog to see the rest of the DT projects. Leave a comment at the YNS Blog for your chance to win a stamp set of your choice. This is a really good deal because the Your Next Stamp stamps are just the cutest images around (smile).
YNS Special Deal is a "welcome baby" deal and will be good for the remainder of the month. Karen will share photos of baby Jessica soon, so check the blog regularly as you don't want to miss pictures of the new little Princess.
Whew, did I miss anything? Oh yes, a description of my card (LOL)! I've used this month's challenge sketch as an inspiration for my card. Instead of hearts, I've used flowers, and I've also scalloped my cross piece. I stamped off my image onto X-Press It Brand card using Momento tuxedo black. I have colored the image with Copic markers except for the umbrella. I actually did color it, but wasn't satisfied, so I stamped off the top half of my image onto yellow dotty paper and pieced the umbrella.
I've used a white card for my base, green card for matting and the strip across the front, and yellow and green DP. The flowers are by Recollections and Wild Orchid Crafts. The additional leaves for the flowers are a Martha Stewart punch, and the border on my green piece is punched with a EK Success border punch.
