Guess what time it is! It's time to celebrate the 1st Birthday of Yumi & Fumi Handmade ("Y&FH")! So Happy Birthday Yumi & Fumi! Renate and Leanne have been in this business for a year now (officially) and I would like to wish them continued success in everything they do!
To celebrate, Y&FH decided to have a Birthday Hop! If you've been hopping along, you should have come here from Lisa T.'s blog. If you stopped here by chance, please go back to the beginning of the hop, here. Renate and Leanne will be giving away some FAB prizes, but in order to win, you must comment on each hopper's blog. If you get lost along the way, the full list of hoppers will be available at the Y&FH blog here. So, for this hop, we were to create something using the inspiration photo below:
I'm very happy with the way my card turned out. I personally would not have chosen to work with these colors, but once I got started, I couldn't stop! The colors are so vibrant and happy and it made me feel good just looking at the inspiration photo. So although I was a little hesitant to work with these colors, I now have a new color combo I will definitely be working with again! I hope you'll feel happy looking at my card below:
There she is, Yumi Peace Sign. She is very special to me because I won her in one of the first Y&FH's giveaways! On to the deets of the card ... It's kind of hard to see all the layers in the picture, but believe me, there are quite a few. The card base was made out of kraft cardstock, then layered with a bright orange piece of thick CS I had in my stash. I used papers from the Prima Annalee stack and layered them on more "stash" papers. I used my Nesties to cut out the white circle and the pink scallop circle, colored Yumi with my Copics, cut her out, and popped her up on the circles. The flowers and leaves were from my stash, along with the flower sticker, flat-back pearls and the white flower trim under the banner. I used the Epiphany Crafts Pennant 25 punch to make the banner pieces and stamped "HI" using a super old alpha set I had in my stash (yes, I have lots of stuff in my "stash").
Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to leave a comment and wish Y&FH a happy birthday! You might be the winner of some goodies! Next up on the hop is Shar and you can visit her blog here.
Happy 1st Birthday Yumi & Fumi Handmade and here's wishing you many more to come! Until next time, take care!
