Color inspiration: Yellow tulips

Color inspiration: Yellow tulips near a white picket fence. Try these three shades of yellow with a pop of green on your spring wreaths, April birthday cards, Mother's Day cards and more #Colorize #ABColorPalette #ad

Yellow is my favorite color and this month’s color palette inspiration is pretty heavy on the bright and golden. We just got back from our spring break in Louisville, KY where we toured a baseball bat factory, explored neighborhoods, ate the city’s best chocolate chip cookies, and spied these beauties near a white picket fence in Germantown. ???

My April color palette inspiration for you is Lift-Off Lemon™, Solar Yellow™, Galaxy Gold™ and Gamma Green™ from Astrobrights Papers. I love the idea of using three shades of a color plus one accent color. And three yellows is like three times the sunshine.

I’m making my mom’s mother’s day card using this color palette and a hexagon craft punch. What do you think so far?

Each month I share an original color palette using Astrobrights Papers who I’d like to thank for sponsoring these posts. All color palettes and opinions are mine. In the past I’ve been inspired by unexpected rainbows and Valentine heart cookies and lush green plants in Chicago’s Garfield Park Observatory and German nutcrackers and Midwestern fall leaves and sugar skulls and baseball games and vintage quilts and an ocean of violets in bloom and lemonade and wild berries and beach toys.

The yellow tulips near a white picket fence were in an area of Louisville called Schnitzelburg. Aren’t the colors in this sign great, too?
