Now on to my card for the HOP.
When you ask me what my favorite color is I am going to normally say red but this time, I just have to say the wonderful Sunshine Yellow Flower Soft. 

I combined using the yellow on this little duck image and my card goes along with the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week. Flower Soft is the sponsor at CPS all week long. 
Look at this close-up of the duck. Is this just too much! The cupcake stamp is by Impression-Obsession. I colored it very softly with Copic markers and then gave the duck a coat of the Sunshine Yellow Flower Soft.  Not only can you win some Flower Soft through the blog hop today but also through CPS, all you need to do is make a card using the sketch. 

We are already talking about yellow so I wanted to share this card using the Get Sketchy sketch for this week. 
The circle designs are actually button stamps by Pink Persimmon.  Gotta love these BasicGrey papers with that yellow.
All I did for the button circles was to stamp then with black ink and then I embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I punched them out with a circle punch and then rubbed a Fluid Chalk stamp pad directly to the image and to the paper to completely color them yellow. 

From my blog, hop on over to Cibele Glazer's blog to continue the hop. 

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
