Not so mellow yellow!

I am in love... with Delightfully Dijon.  It's the perfect mustard yellow colour that isn't too bright and isn't too brown.  I usually fall in love with one in colour each year and I think this might be the one.... although Tip Top Taupe could be a close second.  Hot of the heels of my last post I'm still on my gratitude card kick.  How are you guys going with that?  Any gratitude cards getting made and posted?  This one if quite different from last weeks - with a much bolder colour palate.

This card is pretty abstract.  I like it because it is.  I used quite a few stamp sets and colours to create it, but really as they are all similar hues, with just the pop of gold I think it works ok.  Rather than looking really complex, it's just subtle layers of similar colours and styles.

I used quite a few different products (as you can see from…
