LIM161 - Yellow and Green


This week's Less is More challenge is to use yellow and green.

I admit that green and yellow is not my favourite colour combination of all time. Somehow I always end up thinking of the Greenbay Packers, which is weird since I don't even watch football.

But given how sick I am of white (ie SNOW), I embraced this classic spring combination to make a fresh and pretty card (if I do say so myself!).

I used a Die-versions die (altered by hand) and a Papertrey flower, with some stickles for sparkle and a yellow enamel centre.

Laughing about the Packers. Love how crisp the green is against the white Ardyth.

As soon as I saw the green I thought it's a colour I hardly ever see on your blog, and now you've explained why ;)
Love the spring colours and the cheery daisy. We've been promised 18 degrees (81F) in the next few days - spring is sprung!

Great layout! Love it.
I too am sick of snow and sadly it looks like ours will be here until May.

A beautiful card Ardyth with such a hopeful and "Spring-y" colour combo. The enamel dot is a perfect center for the flower!

I'm really liking this color combo...it really works with the elements and a 'spring' theme". Definitely fresh & very pretty!

It is indeed a pretty card! And I do love that colourcombination in nature and springcards, otherwise I allmost always put another colour with it... Have a fun weekend, Gerrina

Love this graphic look. I don't do much with this kind of card but I think I need to start playing with this style. Packs a punch.
