My Sheri Crafts #114

 My Sheri Crafts Design Team sister, Michelle, had asked us to make a summer themed project using the colors, black, yellow, and white.  Upon seeing the title and the theme requirements, the first thing I thought of was... of course... a bee.  However, I didn't want to make a project with a bee

So, this is what I came up with!  Inspired by the song "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" 

I took 3 layers of flowers (each a little over 4.25" in diameter) and attached it to a circular card base.  I found the silhouette of a bikini online and used SCAL to cut it and decorated it with black glitter for the polka dots.  I thought I'd add the purple flower and the green flourish for a bit of color... it was too monotonous with plain black, yellow, and white.  The flourish is from Cheery Lynn and the quote from the song is computer generated

Thanks for looking!

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts

Card size: 4.25" x 4.25"

Supplies used:

Papers from Recollections
Silk flowers
Cheery Lynn flourish die cut
Fiskar flower punch


  1. Love your take on the challenge! So cute and clever!

  2. Raquel,
    Well you win the prize for creativity!! I would never have thought of attaching large flowers to the base to make a card. This is a great ieda. And the yellow polka dot bikini inspired by one of my favorite songs is adorable. It looks just like the one I had when I was about 20 years younger. I remember buy it because of my love of the song.

    Thanks for the memories!!

  3. Raquel,

  4. Raquel, you can't help but look at this and think of the song! Love that little yellow bikini! Wonderful card my friend! :)
