Summery Yellows for Seize The Birthday!

Hello again!  We have a fun, summery color for our Toppings option at Seize The Birthday for this 2 week challenge!

Our Toppings option is Monochromatic Yellow.   Of course, you can play along whether you use the topping, or not.  Just make sure it's a birthday card!

This card turned out just as I had imagined.  Yes, every once in a while that happens!

This was so easy and a lot of fun to create.  I just adhered strips of yellow card stock (in various widths) to some copy paper, then die cut it.  To give it a little more strength, I then backed it with a scrap piece of card stock.  The birthday sentiment was stamped on the card base, then I stamped  "happy" onto the panel before popping it onto my white linen card base with foam tape.
Quick and easy, but so fun and summery!
I hope you'll play along with us...just click HERE to check out what the rest of the Design Team has created for your inspiration!
Thanks so much for taking a look!
