Yellow and White

I'm really running late this week having had a lovely extended weekend and lacking inspiration! This week's Less is More challenge is     Y E L L O W and the one over at MMM is white flowers. I tried to combine the two but I'm worried there is not enough white space for Chrissie and Mandi!
So I made another one just in case :o)
Here is the first one, what do you think?                            

I used an Anna Griffin lace stamp, cut out the centre panel and mounted onto yellow card. The flower was punched out, layered up and mounted with a yellow crystal brad. The sentiment is an old stamp, stamped with the SU So Saffron, the same as the lace stamp and attached with a heart brad.

This is my second attempt, again using an Anna Griffin stamp to make a border using versamark and white EP. Sponged with Mustard Seed DI and a touch of Spiced Marmalade. A couple of punched flowers and a sentiment complete the card.

I was all ready to post my cards and the internet went down, OMG!!! Anyway it's all good now and I'm off to try and catch up with my commenting :o)

Thanks for taking the time to visit me, it's much appreciated!
