Blog Hop with Papertrey

It's that time again - Blog Hop with Papertrey!

This month's challenge was to make something using YELLOW. I had started to do a Mojo Monday sketch a couple of weeks ago then changed it up and then work got the best of me and I never finished my first try. Well it just so happens I had started with yellow - so I finished it up and here's what I came up with. Being from Chicago we get rain in spring AND summer so even though the yellow evokes feelings of summer - a bit of rain is bound to fall. I love the sentiment and the umbrella from Scattered Showers - made a perfect pair for this cheerful card. For papers I chose Ripe Avocado as my accent color then worked with Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise. You can't see it very well but I used my versamark pad and one of the small flourishes in the new Fancy Flourishes set to make a subtle background paper in the yellows. Cuttlebugged the 2nd layer for texture then paper pieced the umbrella. Added a couple of prima flowers and some yellow dew drops for my final touches. Can't wait to see what everyone else came up with. Have a great week!
