Embracing Yellow

Hi, all! Can you believe Christmas is in just a few short days?! Are you ready?


Today's card is for the latest Embellish challenge--to use yellow, brown, light blue, kraft AND snowflakes on your creation. Now, I'm not big on yellow--and judging from the cards I've seen so far, I'm not the only one--but I decided to take this challenge head on and embrace the yellow. I think it turned out pretty. What do you think?

Stamps: Everyday Sayings (Hero Arts)
Paper: Kraft, Lemon Tart, PTI dp
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: chipboard snowflakes (Oriental Trading Co.), Martha Stewart glitter, Kaisercraft rhinestones, PTI ribbon, scalloped edge punch, white paint

Well, I think you've done a delish job on a color that you're not too hot about...I actually love yellow but don't use it much on my projects..

I do like yellow, but I would have a hard time working it into a card with snowflakes. However, you seemed to have no problem at all! I just love the freshness of this! :>
