Shades of yellow..


Hope you had a good weekend. Alongside a brief playdate with JT, I've been running around trying to tie up loose ends before we leave for London on Thursday!

I thought to take my mind off of the planning / packing, that it would be a good idea to start the week with a new challenge.

I came across Seize the Birthday a while back, but have not entered yet.

The challenge is all about Birthday's but each week there is an extra 'topping', which you can add if you like - clever. This week the topping is 'Yellow'.

As you can see from my main photo my card is most certainly full of the topping.

All the papers are by Recollections at Michaels. I really wanted to mix my patterns and shades. I added the American Crafts navy and white spotty ribbon, to break up the yellow a bit. As I added some navy, I thought I would stamp the sentiment in navy too, the stamp is by Woodware, the washi tape circle and bling are from my stash.

Happy Monday
