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.

  4. 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!
