{Challenge} Use Yellow on a Card or Layout

Posted Image
Create a card or layout using the color YELLOW! It's Springy out there in the world so why not add a bit of yellow springy cheer? I love the new Fabrication papers from Teresa Collins and all of the floral stamps that are available now.
Here's my card sample using yellow printed papers and several Copic markers from the yellow family:
To create a card like this one cut cardstock 4" x 11" and fold at 5.5". Use a border punch along the front bottom edge of the paper. Use a mat for background behind stamped image like the scallop mat I cut using an Accucut die and machine. Next stamp an image onto paper and color in with markers or water color pencils. Adhere stamped image to a mat in a similar shape to the stamped image (oval in my sample). Use ribbon to visually anchor mat/stamped image to lower section of the card. Use pop dots to add even more dimension when adhering stamped image/mat to card front. Stamp small greeting and tuck behind stam
ped image. Cut inside card liner in matching cardstock color and adhere to inside of card so that it shows through the punched lower border.
