Yellow = Spring

Have you noticed that lately I've been on a yellow kick.  It's a good thing that yellow is darn cheerful and a perfect color for spring.  So let's not question the whys and wherefores, let's just enjoy the warm thoughts and feelings that come with yellow.

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "One Sweet Chick"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; Close To My Heart" Desert Sand
paper - yellow cs Colorbok; white Blender cs from MFT; white textured cs scraps for mats; Rubber Soul "Garden Variety Collection" dp
miscellaneous - copics, divine twine; charm; Close To My Heart "buttercup" brads; Favorite Finds "Lace Inspirations" buttons; daisy ribbon, sewing machine;
nesties circle and inverted scallops dies; embossing folder

don't forget the inside

Here's the challenges:
My Favorite Things MFTWSC14 - sketch
Stamp Something - Sassy Circle Somethings
Raise the Bar - Hey chick!
If the Shoe Fits FF#74 - SPRING Is In the Air
