My Creative Stretch Part One


There is still time to enter 
May's Challenge and the 500 follower goal is closer....
so spread the word.

Hello Everyone! Are you watching my count of followers? I surely am and can't believe that I am almost at my goal.  This is very exciting for me so to all my followers I send out a big YIPEE YA YEAH.

I've been busy surfing the net as usual and visiting folks along the way when at one stop point I was introduced to the most talented lady by the name of Debbie.  Her work is beyond amazing and there is so much to learn from just looking at her work.  Her work will inspire you to stretch beyond the norm.

So today is a card I created that is just a bit outside the norm and although it is simple enough, I think it has that little bit of extra that adds the wow so as to grab your attention.

I decided to use Sunshine Orange and White.  This combination is happy and yet not to bright to be considered yellow, although I do love those yellow canaries.  There's also an inspiration photo over at "For Your Inspiration" that has a beautiful golden scenery to spark up the old mojo.

Y'all let me know what you think...okie dokie?  Oh BTW, my photos came out rather dark and I tried to fix them in PhotoShop so forgive me for the funky coloring in the backgrounds.



Supplies:
Cardstock: Recollections
Spellbinders: Botanical Die
K&Company: 3-D Sticker
Sizzix: Embossing Folder
