A yellow layout

Yellow is not a colour I use often, but I seem to have quite a lot of it in my stash so these pictures of M making her Brownie Promise (on the climbing wall) seemed as good a reason as any to use up some of it.

I started with brown cardstock and layered a piece of handmade cream/yellow paper on it for the background.
Then I found the butterfly-embossed Core'dinations cardstock and that gave me my theme. I didn't have any Brownie- or climbing-specific embellishments anyway and I wanted to keep it girly to match M's personality.
I enhanced the large butterflies with a bit of sanding and chalk colours then punched out some small ones from a very old Papermania pad called Spring Life. I like the punches of lime green to brighten the colour scheme.
I'm not sure about the title  - it's a bit contrived- but I could spell it with the woodgrain Thickers I had left. A narrow strip of lace makes it more feminine and an adhesive pearl makes the date on the calendar strip (which was cut from the remains of last year's Christmas papers)

The yellow works really well with the colours of your photo :). Sometimes worth the risk of trying something we're not sure about!
