Bright yellow is a color that makes me happy, and you've made two fab cards using this as main color!
You couldn't have paired up a more perfect sentiment and image for your first card, it's a totally adorable card!
Your second has an elegant look. Yellow is an unusual color for a wedding themed card, but you really made it work! Well done, Tammy!
