Winter Birthday with Altenew

Here's a quick card I made for the current Altenew Challenge.

It is a bit of a challenge for me, because these are my old school colours and the the colours of my family's football team and I REALLY hated wearing brown and yellow and then having to dress my little boy in those colours when he was young! However, it's a lovely picture and I have given it a shot!

I've used Altenew's Beautiful Day set and Label Love. The inks are Staze on and Altenew and it touch of Zig markers.
I've made the leaves  a loose watercolour look, but the flower was stamped with the lightest yellow.


  1. This is so beautiful Jenny. I love the soft yellow and brown image. Great job with colouring with your zigs! xx

  2. Oh Jenny this is gorgeous - I would call your colours coffee and cream - does that make it more acceptable??

  3. Oh my goodness! I thought I was the only person in the universe who had those lovely school colors of brown and yellow! I wonder if we went to the same school? But let me reassure you that you have turned brown and yellow into something totally elegant here! I love how this turned out and I think the non-traditional color palette is a refreshing change from the norm. This is sophisticated and cheery and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  4. Gorgeous, beautiful card. I would never of had put them colours together but they look fabulous.
