Seize the Birthday - Yellow

Sunny cheery yellow,  I don’t think I would have ever chosen to make an almost all yellow card on my own but the current challenge over at Seize the Birthday is to create a monochromatic yellow card. The challenge is to celebrate Lesley’s birthday and I like the way this card turned out :).

I keep coming back to this simple layout but it just seemed to work for this challenge. I found some yellow and white designer paper for the background and added some  twine. I heat embossed the sentiment and finished with some sequins.

Supplies: White and yellow card stock, Designer Paper – My Mind’s Eye, Inspired by Stamping -stamps and die cuts, twine, sequins.

Thank you for stopping by,
