BLD # 51 -- Yellow Challenge

Hi there!!
There is a new challenge over at By Lori Designs and we want to see some YELLOW!!!
That's it!  Easy peasy, right? 
You can link up any card with any image or any products as long as you use YELLOW!
If you used a BLD image, that would be even more fun!!  


I used Pinwheel Poppy and a golden yellow for my "cheer up" card.
It has a sentiment that I hope will brighten someone's day! 
You can find Pinwheel Poppy and all of her friends in the Pedal Pushers collection which is under the category of Puddle Jumpers on Lori's digi site.

Make sure you pop over to the BLD challenge blog and check out what the rest of the Design Team created for this week's challenge.  You have 2 weeks to play along, so why not join us in the fun?!?

  1. I love your challenge cards because you always "Go for it!" Love this little cutie with all of that cheery sunshiney yellow and I do believe she has definitely turned my frown upside down this morning! I always love love love your coloring and my goodness that paper goes absolutely perfectly with your image. My biggest problem is that you always make me want to buy things... I want the BLD stamp, the paper, the die.....
