DT Posting - Cooking it up with Katie #31 - sparkle, yellow and digi

This week at Cooking it up With Katie the recipe is:  use a digi, some yellow and some sparkle. We had fun digi images from Sassy Studio, this week's sponsor, to use for the challenge so that was the digi part sorted.  I paper pieced the armchair with Basic Grey DP in a bright yellow.  The other DP is a freebie from a magazine, they are meant to be masculine colours but I think they work great for this card!  The entiment is from Joanna Sheen, the flowers are Papermania and I used a Woodware punch to make the big flower that has Stickles on it.
The card is based on this week's Friday Sketchers Challenge.  I'd like to claim to be clever and tell you I set it at an angle.  But the truth is I didn't glue the blue DP to the yellow mat and I started to stitch the spotty bits down.  When it started to shift I realised what I had done...  Didn't have any more of the yellow cardstock so I "chose" the artistic interpretation :).  The yellow cardstock has been distressed at the edges.
I'm entering my card for:

  5. Great card Anne. Love the chair pieced like that. Your coloring looks great, too. I really like the jeans, they look worn in the knees, very realistic.
