Copic Creations is offering all of us that live for Copic Markers the opportunity to use the often neglected color - yellow. I don't know why it is neglected... I love yellow. Anyway, hop on over to Copic Creations and join in the fun!
This is another version of the card I selected to use for the challenge. It is a rubber stamp produced by Crafts And Me called "Flapper Melody". I just love their selection of flapper girls. I was first introduced to these wonderful stamps from one of the blogs I frequent called, In Rosie's Book. Hop over to her site and take a look at Rose's fabulous flapper girl!
The one I selected is called "Flapper Melody. Don't you just love her "sassy" look? I am also entering this card in the Basic Grey Challenge # 44. I used A colorful designer paper from a Basic Grey selection for my top base layer. Isn't it bright, colorful and complement the flapper?
