Hello Yellow!

This week Susan set a One Layer Wednesday challenge to use yellow.  At first I was like "yellow, why oh why yellow... I have such a hard time photographing yellow"!   Well actually I just have a hard time photographing pretty much anything, but that's another story!    After whining a bit and sulking I decided to check out what other players had posted on Susan's blog.   As I was looking around I saw this card and my idea was born.  I loved the block of yellow on the white card, but decided for my card to move the image to the lower half of my card, tie ribbon above the image to define all the lovely white space on top and stamp the sentiment on the image.  I really LOVE how it turned out and I think the photo turned out pretty good, too!!



Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  PTI white cardstock; Stamps:  Hero Arts Silhouette Bells cling, Find Joy clear set; Ink:  Stampin Up! So Saffron, PTI True Black; Ribbon:  Stampin Up! So Saffron
