Yellow Pansies

This is the card from Makiko Jones that is the inspiration for the CASE study challenge this week.   I really liked her color selection of all shades of yellow, going into orange, and green.  Here is my take on it:


I brought the busy background forward on my version, coloring it with pencils, and changed up the shape of the diecut.  Because of the busy-ness of the background, I chose to add my sentiment on a strip of vellum.  My ribbon was pretty stiff, and so I didn't achieve the lovely bow that Makiko did, but I like that shade of green with my card.

Supplies: Hero Arts K5185 Wallpaper Flowers, CL181 SparkleClear Messages, CG148 Blossoms (leaves), white cardstock, Heidi Grace designer paper (plaid), Core'dinations cardstock (melon), versafine onyx black ink, colored pencils, fabric pansies, orange flower brads, green ribbon, green gems, nestabilities oval and scalloped oval dies
