X is for Xanthic - yep, I had to look it up too

 Morning all.  Over at The Alphabet Challenge we have 'X for Xanthic'.  Apparently it means tending towards a yellow colour.  Well, just to be on the safe side I've gone very yellow.

I had this lovely yellow paper with a blue floral pattern on for ages.  The pattern goes in strips so it was itching to be turned into a slimline card.  I just added a sentiment and some butterflies and finished it with some gems.  Really simple to create but I'm pleased with it.  I didn't expect to like it.  Yellow is my least favourite colour.

Don't let that stop you joining in the fun.  Let's celebrate all things 'Xanthic'

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x


  1. Not a fan of yellow either Dawn,love your slimline card,the hints of blue and white look beautiful against the yellow,a gorgeous card

  2. Despite your feelings towards yellow, you managed to create a beautiful card - in fact, I'd never guess you don't like it if you hadn't mentioned it. I like your slimline design (which I usually avoid because those cards seem a bit too long and I don't know how to stretch the motif). I think the idea to use a strip of pattern is perfect, and the right amount of embellishment makes sure that the card doesn't look too empty. Great take on a weird alphabet letter.

    Hugs, Veronika

  3. Radiantly beautiful card! One would never know that you and yellow aren't exactly the closest of BFFs, as you have utilized it superbly here and shown it no shortage of love, in my books.
