ABS Say It In Yellow - Mellow Yellow



This weeks AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge is to Say It In Yellow.


My CAS card features two of the images and a sentiment from AnnaBelle Stamps 'Everything Grows' January release set. 
Check out the herringbone ribbon across the bottom........that's one of the background images from the February release of 'BBD3'.....love this stamp!


With a base of cream card followed by some Lemon American Craft Card.
Using a die cut mask (Spellbinder Classic Scalloped Oval) and sponging with VersaColor Narcissus over SU Whisper White card.  
The stems were stamped in SU So Saffron as was the herringbone ribbon.
Memento Tuxedo Black stamped the Birthday greeting over the herringbone which was cut out before adhering to the card and two 6mm lemon Sprinkles added to complete.

Mood when finished........Mellow!

Thanks for calling past today.....it's been a busy week here,  I'm looking forward to a relaxing week end .....how about you?
Hope you'll have time to play this week .....  if you need more inspiration check out the Belles and Bellas Blogs...........links in the left side bar!


See you soon,
