If a colour shouts out Spring, yellow shouts the loudest!
It isn't one of my colours, but as I look at my card I ask, why not?
Palette is my favourite bundle in the Spring/Summer catalogue, and the
large stamp of three roses with leaves, is my favourite stamp in the set.

and then a top layer of Whisper White CS.
