Yellow Birthday

One of my friends and former co-workers is having a birthday today.  Her favorite color like mine is yellow.  This was a fun card to make for me, because it screams sunshine. Fitting for these 70 degree California autumn days.

Stamped and embossed image, colored and enhanced with stickles.  Then I fussy cut it out.  I did not like the yellow against yellow, so I matted it and fussy cut again(ugh).  A matted bit of left over patterned paper, and a stamped & heat embossed front sentiment.  I know I would smile opening this card.

Thanks for stopping by.
