It's strange how picking up a pen can influence how a card develops... I just thought I would do a yellow umbrella, but the shade I chose didn't go with any of the yellow/green papers I had, which is what I first thought I would do. So off I went with the addition of brown. I opened several reels of ribbon until I found one that was approaching the shade of yellow I needed. I think it works, but the whole thing doesn't look terribly Aprilly to me, the colours are a little rich!
I enjoyed making the flowers (Nellies) and the frame (Martha Stewart) and because the overall feel is Yellow, it's for the Alphabet Challenge, Y - Yellow, this week. At Stempeltraume, it's Yellow and flowers, so there's another challenge!
The brown background paper is embossed with Cuttlebug random Dots and the sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly.
