Yellow flower for CTD 154


I have a couple of cards to share with you today.

One is an entry into Color Throwdown #154.  The colours this week are lovely:
Here is my card, a nice CAS flower:
This flower was a bit tricky. I'm sure there is an easier way to create it than the way I did it, sigh!

What I used (all SU):
Card: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Basic Grey patterns, So Saffron (not sure which DSP these are)
Ink: Old Olive

The other card is another birthday card, using Garden Friends, and my hoppy friend from yesterday.  Not a response to a challenge,  I am just enjoying this stamp set. :-)
This froggy is so cute! I used Inktense pencils - Apple Green (ground), Fern (frog & leaves), Cadmium Yellow, Bright Blue, and Hot Red. I only have 6 pencils, LOL, I'll have to expand my collection. . .   The cardstock is Whisper White and Old Olive. The patterned paper is "Chirpy" from Happy Go Lucky by Pebbles.

We have an afternoon thunder storm happening today. Very weird. We get these in Summer, all the time, but rarely in Winter. At this time of year we usually have the westerly winds bringing cold, dusty wind to us, but not today. Today it is pretending to be Summer (without the heat).

Heard something of a storm at Redbank Plains but the party was in full swing (ie didn't take much notice). LOVE the flower no matter how much trouble it was and I am jealous of the frog as he has met the inktense pencils.

Sweet little flower, love how you used circles to creaate it :)
That little frog is so sweet, I don't blame you for using him on a 'just because' card :)
Certainly does sound strange having a summer thunderstorm in winter!!!
