A Splash of Colour

It's time for another challenge at Fantabulous Cricut, and this week, we are challenging you to add a splash of the colour YELLOW  to your projects!  I made a fun birthday card and included a yellow shirt, yo-yo and sun.  (The colour looks a bit orange in the photo, but it really is YELLOW!)
I used Car Decals for the little boy.  I really LOVE this cartridge!  I used George and Basic Shapes for the eyes (I don't care much for the mis-matched eye sizes that come with the cartridge) and for the black frame.  The sun is an image from Create a Critter and the nine is from Mickey Font.  The cute little boy and the number 9 are popped for a bit of dimension.  I embossed the blue background with a Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder and also created a border on the green grass with an EK Success border punch.  I finished everything off with a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Sweet Sentiments Set #1.

If you have not seen the new My Craft Spot Fall Stamp Release, you can check it out HERE.  In fact, there is still time (but not much!) to join the Stamp Release Blog Hop, where you can WIN a new stamp set at each blog along the way!  Winners will be announced tomorrow - so join the fun now!

Head on over to Fantabulous Cricut to check out the rest of the design team projects - and then link up your own YELLOW creation! 

I'm also entering this in the Cricut Circle's weekly challenge: ABC 1-2-3 (A pop of Bright Colour - yellow, one yo-yo, two eyes and three layers to the sun). 

I've just discovered Paper Playtime - thanks to Janis - so will enter my card there as well.  It's a fun site with lots of creativity.  Check it out!

By the way.... I would love you to enter this card into my challenge blog's current challenge. The theme is VACATION, and I think this little fella looks like he is having a fun one. And the sentiment counts as something digi or stamped on your card.
