... I think this card fulfills the requirements for both challenges. Susan at Simplicity is hosting this week's OLW challenge; she has one simple requirement - use the colour YELLOW. You can use other colours too, but they have to be kept to a minimum. We can add embellishments - but again minimal embellishments. I have only recently found the Colour Q challenge; they provide a lovely mood board for their challenge. I think the colours refer to Stampin' Up! colours - I don't have much card/ink from SU, so I've improvised a bit. I think my card just about fits the bill.
The thing with yellow is that it shouts SPRING to me!! And as it's quite a dull, grey day here in North Wales, I thought a bright daffodil would be perfect! The image has been stamped with versafine and embossed with detail clear, making a perfect image to colour. I've used promarkers - pastel blue (soft sky), gold (daffodil delight) and ivory (so saffron) - that's the closest I could get to the SU colours! The image was produced by Docrafts (Papermania) a few years ago as a special edition stamp. I think it sold for about £5.00 and £1.00 of this went to Marie Curie Cancer Research - daffodils are their emblem. It's not been out of the box for a while, so it's nice to use it for this lovely Spring card.

I think that's all for today. I've been able to squeeze this challenge inbetween all the household duties, but I'd better finish them off. See you again tomorrow.
