Cards In Envy Square

The challenge over at Cards In Envy (CIE) is “Hip To Be Square” (if any of you are old enough, can you remember Huey Lewis and the News?).

My rose garden is blooming with the last roses and some of them are yellow. My marigolds, which only come in two colors gold and yellow, are just in their glorious stages right now. It is amazing when you plant one marigold plant in the spring and watch it for a few weeks, it looks as though it might not make it; but, as the air heats up and the afternoon rains come they grow into the most magnificent flowers. They will be rendering full colorful plants right up until Thanksgiving. Why am I rambling on about this? YELLOW. My take on the “Hip To Be Square” challenge:

The Happy Birthday greeting is from Your Next Stamp and ribbon from Stamps of Life. Mounted it on black cardstock.  Added a few black dots (to coordinate with ribbon) and called it a day.

Thanks for stopping by.
