Sparkle and Shine Challenge 12

This Sparkle and Shine challenge is sponsored by Winnie & Walter, and is based on the following photo:

I used the yellow, black, white, and red color theme to make a card that would be able to be used for a number of occasions.  (Since my kids are all grown I don't have a need for a back to school to card.)

Here's what I came up with:

I used the Altenew vintage flowers die and stamp set with distress inks (barn door and fired brick), as well as Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched  Borders 2 die for the edge of the yellow print paper, and Pretty Pink Posh's sparkling clear seed beads for the flower centers.  Patterned paper was from Authentique's Essentials Collection - Blissful.  The sentiment is one I had left over from a previous project.  (It is one of Mama Elephant's dies - scripty hello.) Very simple, but I actually like the color combination.
Thanks for taking a look!
