Hello Everyone ~ are you wondering what my Petal Palette in Yellow and Black creation looks like?
Well I am back in my house. I came over yesterday to wait for the guy to come run off the treatment inside the house and take a test sample. I also have a half painted front door. The new door had to be painted, but it needs 2 coats so he is coming back today to add another coat. I have almost all the repairs completed. I still don’t know about the septic tank as we have not heard from the other plumber. The crawl space will be completed next week and then everything will be done in time for closing. It has been a long road and I will be glad when it is over. I plan on spending the weekend doing my last workshop, packing some more, and working on my last Catalog Journey stamp sets. It sounds like a lot and I will have a busy weekend.
My card today is the next one in my Catalog Journey. Using the Petal Palette set and a layout I saw on a challenge blog I began planning my creation. I thought the larger panel would be perfect using the leaf spray framelit in the Petals and More thinlits. After I cut it out it was mounted onto a Whisper White panel and some flowers from the set were also added. This panel was mounted onto a Basic Black layer. The bird was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. It was then colored using a Daffodil Delight marker and cut out with the framelit. To mount it I used a piece of the Tropical Escape designer series paper and punched out a 2″ circle. I mounted the circle on a 2 1/4″ Basic Black circle. The bird was added using dimensionals. I was ready to put my card together. Using a Basic Black card base, I added a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock. The center strip is another piece of the Tropical Escape designer series paper mounted onto a piece of Basic Black. I then attached the leaf and flower layer in the lower right hand corner at an angle. To finish off the card, the bird element was added to the upper left hand corner using dimensionals. Here is the completed Petal Palette in Yellow and Black.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you. I am having lunch with a group of ladies I worked with before I retired. After that I am headed to the yarn store as I need some time to play just for me. What plans do you have for today? Have a Great Day and will you be trying the Petal Palette in Yellow and Black creation?
