Yellow is the colour

The New Theme/ Colour
for my Butterfly Challenge is

#57 Butterflies + Y is for Years and/or Yellow.

Here is my inspiration for you.
I was on a roll making these as I ended up with 5
Here are the first 2

I used a white base card and a Kanban topper left over
from a previous make. This is actually the surround to the topper.
I used gold outline stickers for the rose and butterfly. Painted in  using Distress markers
which I scribbled onto an acrylic block and diluted down with water and used a fine 
paint brush to fill in the details.
Numbers and letters are more gold stickers.
I raised the topper on 3D pads for more definition.

 2nd card.
Here I have used yellow holographic card and a printed vellum paper 
layered  up  with a butterfly gold sticker and yellow gems to finish.
The 50th was actually a silver colour but I coloured in using a
yellow distress marker which has given a lovely gold appearance.
I thought this would make either a birthday or a gold 50th anniversary.

  11. Hi Mrs A,
    2 wonderful cards, and very fab designs.
    I bet the second is so pretty if seen in the flesh so to speak as the camera can never pick up how wonderful vellum is.
    Such a very delightful, and summery colour choice as well.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  30. Love these yellow roses. That's such a difficult color to grow (at least for me), and the shades of color on each of these cards is glorious. Great painting with an outline sticker. Had to re-read that part to be sure! Love how you used the topper negative. What a good idea and very attractive as a frame for the flowers & butterfly. #2 is sparkling with the holograph paper and the printed vellum. Another nifty idea for a beautiful card. TFS & Happy wkend.

  31. Stunning cards, I like the yellow and gold paired together. Thanks for catching that I had already made a butterfly card to fit your challenge, I was trying to come up with an idea, lol.

  32. great card love the design and colours thanks for joining us at Scrappers Delight
