Butterlover's Test

  

When I was a little girl, just a couple of years ago, my friends and I would pick these little yellow flowers and hold them under our chins..  Legend has it that if your chin turned yelllow, you loved butter. If it didn't, you hated butter.  Lucky me, my chin always reflected yellow and today all 3 of my chins still turn yellow because I do love my butter.  Hear that Paula Deen? 

Sassy Cheryl's challenge this week is to make a tent card.  This is a new shape for me and I really liked it.  There are some amazing cards from the Sassy Girls for inspiration.  The tent card was easy to make, but Buttercup Susie was not the best digi to use for a tent card.  Her legs are so tiny that she wouldn't stand up by herself.  So I made a little brace for her out of folded paper and foam tape which provided the support she needed.  Since the card has to close for mailing, I had to make a folded brace that would fold up too.  Worked really well.  I apologize for the shadows on the floral background.  The "tent" shadows showed up when I took the pictures.  I took some other pictures, but picnik and my intranet are not allowing me to upload them tonight.  AAArrrrggghhh!

I colored with my Copics and then took Pearl Ex powder and brushed on her dress for a bit of sparkle.  The flower has some yellow liquid pearl on it for a little bling. The grass is from Jolee's, flowers are Recollections, leaf punch is MS, finished off with a Baker's twin bow and a SU tag.  The card stock is SU and the DP is Making Memories.  My Granddaughter Kaylee was making a Father's Day card while I was working on this and she was surprised how fast this one went together.  I have a feeling I'll be making some more of these.  I already have some images in mind for a tent card and I saw some paper at Aw Shucks that will be perfect for one of them.

  6. I have to tell you I as LOL at the "just a few years ago" comment, but was ROFL at the "all 3 chins". Now I'm not laughing at you, but with you, as the pot cannot be calling the kettle black. Your card is fabulous and your bracing job worked great. Beautiful job with the challenge.
