Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Buzz Off

Not literally, but thats the challenge title this time, its all to do with everything being in black and yellow. I sincerely hope that this card is near enough to that challenge though there is a little skin colouring on my young lass's face hope you will forgive me that, I think Ive Id done her skin yellow you would be complaining shes probably got some liver complaint. And guess what it isnt a Halloween card this time.

Anyway this stamped image is one of the Charmed Cards and Crafts Stamps, this one is Purrfect Annie and Kitty, there are quite a few different ones in the set, so I would click on the link and pop across and have a look, theres some really lovely new Fairy stamps there I see today. Ive stamped her out onto white card and coloured her with my Copic Pens, using the Yellow and Grey/Black colours. Ive then punched her out with my Circle Nestabilitie die and after Ive used two of the Scalloped edged ones, they are two different sizes. The sentiment is one of Hero Arts one and this also has been punched out with a label Nestabilitie die, this has been done twice, once with yellow card and then the actual greeting was punched out and trimmed to fit it.

The base card is 8"x 8" white card with my first layer is black card with a lovely black and white pattern on, again Ive used Donna's beautiful papers from her Bearly Mine Extreme Designs Cds, and the second layer is a yellow patterned paper on a piece of yellow card, this was cut in a triangle shape and stuck to the base layer. The third layer is yet again another of the black and white patterns, this has a multi spot design on and this was stuck onto a another piece of black card, and positioned to the right of the card. Ive then put some black satin ribbon through the holes of the sentiment and stuck it across the bottom of my card and attached it to the back of the first layer.

I then created a flower from two more of the patterned papers, and moulded it with my ball tool and then punched a hole through the centre and stuck a pearl brad through it with a butterfly charm hanging from it. I then put some silicone glue in a ring and put my punched out black leaves around it and then popped my flower on top. To finish of I though it looked a bit to drab so I found some yellow gems and stuck them over some of the multi sized black spots on the pattern.
