Green and yellow

The Ribbon Girl Blog has a gorgeous selection of ribbons up for grabs if you win their color challenge this time!  All you have to do is make something green and yellow!


I am definitely in a Spring mood, and when I think of yellow, I think of daffodils, so I colored these digital daffodils by Jane with watercolor pencils, framed them in a scalloped green, and popped them above this luscious October Afternoon "Thrift Shop" designer paper.  I still have some hand-dyed yellow ribbon from Donna, and then all I needed was a green button and the sentiment.

supplies:  white and green cardstock, Jane's digital daffodils, watercolor pencils, Nesties ovals and scalloped ovals dies, October Afternoon Thrift Shop dp, Hero Arts CL490 Sending Smiles Messages, versafine onyx black ink, hand-dyed seam binding, green button and twine

Wish me luck - I REALLY want those ribbons!
