I adore yellow and with the lack of sunshine and abundance of rainfall in our neck of the woods it was a sheer joy working with some wonderful yellow papers :)    I pulled in some orange from the balloons and green from the field of flowers as well.  The sentiment and butterfly are from Hope Lifts and butterfly die from Lifted Hope.  Added a touch of foliage using Sprightly Springs to ground my butterfly, and a few sequins and twine to finish things off nicely.  Can't wait to see yellow daffodils in my garden!!



Want to win some shiny new Verve? Today's prize is a BIG one. We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE new release! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog today for the full hop list and all the prize info and deadlines!
