All Occasion Card

Another one for the Daring Cardmakers - a midweek challenge to use yellow or orange on a card. Well, this one sure is Yellow! I used a paper from Dovecraft that I got at Lakeland, it was black, white and taupe, so I coloured in the
white lines with a yellow tombow marker, cut out two of the blossoms from another sheet and decoupaged them, matted it in taupe and yellow. The photo corner with doodling - thanks to Jo Kill - is cut from Jasmine at 4" real dial size. Added gold stickles to the flowers.
By the way, we had a super weekend with our friends up in Yorkshire. On friday we went to Whitby and had fish and chips at the Magpie, which is supposed to have the best fish and chips in the world - it was certainly yummy. I found a really nice little craft shop tucked away and spent a happy hour browsing around there. I love weekends away, you feel as if you have had a mini holiday.
