Step Outside Your Color Comfort Zone!

Yellow can be a difficult color to craft with and I don't keep a lot of yellow in my stash.  But one of my favorite perennials is my yellow tree peony (photo below) and I thought I would like to try an Anna Griffin card for Mother's Day with this yellow flower as inspiration.  I used Anna's Lovely Layered Cards Cartridge again and will put my sentiment inside.  Once again the darkest yellow needed some umph with distressed inks to pop and I didn't want to use a cream neutral with the yellow, so I added this small scale dot by Stampin' Up.  I am going to enter this one into the Fantabulous Cricut blog Mother's Day challenge as I see that you can enter 3 times.


  1. Wow, that is a lovely card. I'm with you on the yellow, I don't keep much of it but you were definitely INSPIRED with this piece and your lovely peony! Thanks for sharing your talent at Fantabulous Cricut!

  2. This is so pretty! You know, now that I think of it, I don't use much yellow either! I will have to work on that. I love your inspiration peony! Thanks for joining FCCB! ~Cynthia
