Mello Yellow Hospitality

Good morning all! No snow today, the sun is shining brightly and we should get into the 50's today. Where is Spring?
Where are the Texas Bluebonnets? Well, it is a little early for that, but in the meantime, Cath's MoxieFabWorld's Tuesday Trigger was this card. I don't use yellow often enough and it's a colour that I definitely associate with Spring, so this is my try at my yellow inspired (with a twist of blue for the Bluebonnets;) card.

I used 2 of the quilt blocks from PaperTreys' Quilters Sampler Additions stamp set on white PTI card stock. Punched out with a 3/4" square punch, coloured with a Copic marker and adhered to a piece of yellow patterned paper from the Citrus Stack. I am also using the sketch from SCS #269. I also do not use triangle very often in my cards, so this card was a double challenge effort!
The other pattern papers are also from the Citrus Stack and I like the way that they co-ordinate together. The sentiment is from the Quilter's Sample PTI set that has wonderful images in it. I stamped it in the same black ink (PTI True Black) and I pierced around the edge and sewed some embroidery floss around it, keeping with a stitching theme.

For fun, and because it happens to be yellow, I photographed the card on my new microfiber dusting mitt that I picked up from WS last week ;) It has not been used yet...for dusting that is!

Have a great day!
