Loving The Yellow!

Hi everyone,  How simple is this card when you just need a quick card for that special friend!  I am in a yellow phase lately as I think it looks great with navy blue or gray or black.  We never seem to give yellow it's due so I am on a mission to bring it to the forefront.  What do you think of yellow?  This card was done using the Parisian dies, both the border and the largest element, as well as the beaded squares from the last shows.  I simply added a bit of ribbon and three of our new organza ribbon roses (I didn't make these as we sell them already finished and they are incredibly affordable!).  I pierced around the edge to finish it off and it frames the card off nicely, I think. 
I was hoping to bring you a few more Christmas cards as well as some of my pics from CHA, but my laptop isn't playing nicely at the moment.  Keep checking back as I am sure that it will come around eventually (must be the Florida humidity!)  All for now, Sue x

Wow that is a beautiful card, stunning actually. I seldom use yellow, not sure why but if you share more lovely cards like this one you might inspire me. LOVE those organza ribbon roses.

Yellow is such a cheery colour. The dies you used are very pretty. I also love the rounded corners and the piercing.

Sarpreet said...

Stunning card, i agree that yellow does not get much of a show anywhere. I have become fond of the combination of yellow and grey. It is a nice cheery colour. However I tend to use more pastel yellow recently. Great to see samples using a stronger yellow.

I've always been a fan of yellow - particularly in summer. It can really bring other colours to life.

Debs said...

Beautiful card, love the colour combo, I am into orange and grey combo. Looking forward to CHA pictures. Hugs Bee

Maryann said...

gORGEOUS CARD, i REALLY LOVE THIS COMBO HERE, AND THE YELLOW ALWAYS REMINDS OF SUMMER AND SUN, SOMETHING WE SURE HAVEN´T HAD TOO MUCH OF HERE THE LAST YEARS, SO IT´S GREAT TO GET A BIT FAKE SUNSHINE THEN.

Christine said...

Gorgeous card Sue, thanks for showing that yellow does work with certain colours. Must admit it is a colour I don't use much but keep them coming as I love seeing your colour combo's.
Hugs
Christine xx

what a great colour combination =) i really like yellow but don't often use it, thanks for the inspiration xx

I never choose bright yellow as a first choice in any projects, although I don't dislike it. I think I prefer more lemon tones, but this card has made me value its qualities more. It looks really effective with the dark royal blue. A lovely card yet again, looking forward to seeing more.

A really smart card, Sue. I don't like yellow on it's own but love it combined and calmed down.
Hope you had a good time in Florida.
BTW - Will your DVD - YES!!!! everyone - be available at Ally Pally???, or only Create and Craft?

Sue said...

Love the card, great colour choice.
Whats this I read a DVD at last.

Sue

LellyJelly said...

DVD apparently due end August. Sue will probably hang, draw and quarter me for that! Hey,ho....

Barbara Phillips said...

DVD!!!!! Not before time, your talent should be available for everyone and at a relaxed pace that we can enjoy. Too many interuptions on C&C and half the time you dont get to finish a card. Cant wait to see it!!!

violetclouds said...

yellow is the favourite colour of one of my bestest friends so this is exactly the sort of card I would like to be able to make for her! I really love the way you have used the yellow and blue together

Buttons said...

I'm glad you've managed to squeeze in the DVD project Sue. It is long overdue and I agree - you get interupted so much at C&C (for obvious reasons as it is not possible to concentrate on a longer project). This will give all your fans the one-on-ones they have been craving!
Looking forward to your CHA posts and love the card as ever, take care

Love the dies you have used and the card construction but it may take me some time to get used to the yellow!
Just have to be more open minded I guess!

I hardly drop responses, however after reading a few
of the responses on "Loving The Yellow!". I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay. Is it just me or does it appear like some of the comments come across as if they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to follow you. Could you post a list of every one of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
