Ah, yellow. It is such a beautiful, cheery color. I have always loved the sun. Remember the days of baby oil instead of tanning lotion. Yes, not a good idea especially when you have skin that burns as easily as mine.

However, I have seen cards this past year that look so very warm and inviting. The colors were a mixture of yellow, orange and red. So I was glad for this challenge because it inspired me to play with my yellow inks. So lets see. The main part of the card I used Tim Holtz Textured Fades Embossing Folder Regal Flourishes and then sponged over in Mustard Seed Distressed Ink. On the corners I used Mustard Seed Distressed Stickles. I stamped my image in Mustard Seed and sponged in Barely Banana (Stampin' Up). I also sponged the edges in Spiced Marmalade Distressed Ink. I brushed over in Sun Sparkle Perfect Pearls. I colored in the bird with Sunset Yellow Alcohol ink using my Tim Holtz Fillable Pen. I then added with Yellow Stickles the bird's eye. I also used Scattered Straw Distressed Ink and went over in Mustard Seed Distressed Stickles for the middle strip of paper. Finally, I punched out the tag and sponged over in Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, and Spiced Marmalade and stamped "Happy Birthday" in Mustard Seed. I then went over the edges in Lemon Ice Ice Stickles.
