Hello, Yellow!

Isn't this a happy card? Look at that yellow, and the bright flower. It's my hope that whoever receives this will smile.

The sentiment is from The Ton Stamps' Fresh Cut Peonies.  This font reminds me fondly of my penmanship class when I was young! You had to make perfect loops on your L's, or you'd get points off. I've always had a penchant for handwriting. I'm surprised the latest brushstroke calligraphy craze hasn't hit me!

I used some goodies from a Stampin' Up! scrap bag to help create that flower. The circles (check out the golden circle on top!), scalloped circle and biggest flower layer were all in there, and seemed to go quite well together as a blossom. I added greenery from Spellbinders Foliage, and a few golden sequins.

I'm so glad you came by today.  You are special, and don't you forget it! :-)

I love yellow! So cute! I've been told they don't teach cursive writing in school anymore. Maybe that's just Oregon. So sad. I would think that would be a real handicap.
