Yellow, kraft. and neutral

Here is the inspiration photo and colors for CR84FN's current challenge:


I was backing up some files on my computer earlier today and came across this Edith Holden image that I found somewhere and saved.  A light bulb went off and I knew I could use it for this challenge:


supplies: kraft card base, Edith Holden digital print, design papers from Memory Box, pinkpaislee, and Websters' Pages, Impression Obsession Spring stamp,  Hero Arts paper art flowers, hemp string, crochet lace from Carole, tiny brown and yellow buttons and 1 larger button

It's a long way until Spring again, but this will go into storage until then.  Love this color combination!
