Yellow, Thanks a Bunch

The lesson for Day 4 of Altenew Academy's In the Mood for Color focused on yellow.  Our homework was to use yellow to show energy, cheer and optimism.

After stamping the daisies, I used a few Zig Clean Color pens to color and fill in the petals and flower centers.  I've always liked yellow and think it is a happy color!  Thanks for taking a look!
