Yellow

It's an interesting colour challenge this week at Less is More  - they would like to see YELLOW in our clean and simple projects.
Here is my card


My 5" x 5" card blank has had a mat of white card stock added which has first been put through my 'Bug in the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then die cut a fancy square onto which I stamped the fern leaf from Growing Green. The rose was stamped onto a scrap of white card stock, coloured with Promarkers and then cut out and attached with 3D foam pads.

I said that this was an interesting colour choice for a challenge because I don't use yellow all that much but more interestingly I had been thinking about yellow roses. I am visiting my mum and dad at the weekend and we will probably take some flowers to my Gran's grave - yellow roses - this seemed the obvious card to make.
See you soon - Jacqueline xx

  4. I like the texture on this LIM card with the touch of yellow - a nice sunny colour for a grey and wet day

  8. I, too, don't use enough yellow! I ADORE this, so may I CASE it? I'll of course give you credit for original design, and I won't use it for this challenge. I just REALLY love the layout! :)
