Sunshine...

Ok, so remember a week or so ago I talked about how I hated the color yellow? Well, I am beginning to think it is growing on me! I really really like this Daffodil color from SU and especially mixed with the green and brown..it's just a fun combo for me. I am using this week's Mojo Monday sketch, seen here:





Isn't it cute? So, I decided to go outside of my comfort zone with the color, but also the rest of the card. It's a little more..'something' than my normal cards and I'm not sure what that 'something' is, but it didn't really feel like me when I made it. I really like it, though. Here it is:






What do you think? It just feels like a light sunny cheery card. :) I really like the Verve stamps I chose. I guess subconsciously when I bought that set I knew I would have to use yellow at some point, right? LOL

Well, that's all I have today. Thank you, as always. for stopping by. I hope you're having a lovely week.  Laters!

I'm not to big on yellow either but I LOVE this card! The ribbon and banner are FAB together and I love how you shaded the yellow around that sentiment! GREAT card!

KEVA!! this is GORGEOUS! I love, love the color combo, and the softness of the yellow on the focal point circle (how did you do that?? is that airbrushed Copic? or sponged? or what??). The pearls are a great finishing touch - beautiful!!
