Hi friends, and welcome to my post for Color Hues Challenge #5! This time we are challenging you to use Yellow and Kraft for your card or project. 

I created a fun masculine birthday card.  I never seem to have enough of these in my stash.  I die cut the A-maze-ing Mini Cover Plate from white card stock and the back layer from kraft card stock.  I adhered them together and glued them to my white card base.

I did some direct to paper with some yellow inks from Catherine Pooler to create an ombre effect.  I then die cut the Yay! from it and some black card stock for dimension.  I adhered that to the top of the die cut cover plate and added some sparkle from my sparkle pen.  The sentiment underneath is from Taylored Expressions.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
