Swedish scrapbooking - Allt om Scrap - my canvas "Happiness"

Hello again!

I have been approached several times by the Swedish online authority on Scrapbooking - "Allt om Scrap" - regarding a GDT spot with them. The editor Marie, is DT member over at Heart & Soul, also known as The Color Rooms. Unfortunately other commitments came in between, but now everything fitted beautifully!

Allt of Scrap have a challenge in monochromatic yellow on their blog HERE that I was asked to create something for. I went for a 20 x 20 canvas mounted in a deep shadow box.

Here's the canvas with misted yellow tones 
and a bit of white.

I also added some stamping in really dark yellow that 
looks like brown, around the border.

 All the mulberry flowers were originally white.

And this is the finished result in its shadow box 
ready to go up on the wall or on a shelf.
