Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger-An idea in yellow

What a beautiful shade of yellow this door is! Love the glass in the door and window too, that's what inspired me to create this thank you card. I tried to make it look like the flowers outside my window. Yes, here in Florida we have flowers blooming all year round. Such a treat for someone who lived up North for most of my life. The pink ribbon is picking up the flower color in the vase on the table.

My Card (click on the image for a more detailed look see)
Of course, I knew I would not get a decent photo, especially because of the vellum, in the evening darkness on my maple wood desk, but this is what happens when you post challenges at the last possible minute :o(

Cardstock: White base card is PTI: Yellow is from DCWV; Vellum from my stash
Stamp: Impression Obsession; cut up a silk leaf and sort of paper pieced it over the stamped leaves
Ink: Sepia from Ranger Archival; flower in corner colored in with Tombows~glitter in the center from G Studio; sentiment typed on the vellum from my computer
Tools: Border punch (Deco Fan) from Martha Stewart
Embellies: Pink grosgrain ribbon is from Michael's; glue dots holding the vellum down don't show up this much in person (but kinda look like a dew drop on the leaf in the photo :)

Thanks for looking, have a good Sunday evening!
