Mellow Yellow!

Hi everyone, today's card is for AnnaBelle Stamps 'Say it in....Yellow' Challenge, and just for a second challenge, I also used AnnaBelle Stamps ABS034 Sketch.

I have to admit this was way outside my comfort zone to even use yellow.....it has to be my least used colour, I have a real aversion to it! I was surprised that I even had some yellow DP, but I found some in a pack of mixed Heidi Grace papers that I got from a Fiskars clearance sale a while ago. I thought that grey would make a nice combination with yellow, so used some Stampin' Up Basic Grey cardstock for my background and for the Nestabilities die-cut flower blossom and label. My stamps are from the AnnaBelle Stamps 'Helen's Party' set, I used Copic Markers to colour the cake and used a clear Spica glitter pen on the frosting.

I also used some Stampin' Up yellow grosgrain ribbon and some unknown pale grey satin ribbon along with some Kaisercraft rhinestones.

That's it for today, I need to get off this computer now. For some unknown reason my DH took my reading glasses with him to work today.....very inconvenient of him! I'm having to use my multi-focals which make me look at the screen at an odd angle, I'll end up with a sore neck if I stay here much longer!

Hope you're having a great day!
